Keystone Adventure School and Farm, located in northwest Edmond, is looking for a qualified and experienced teacher for our multi-age Kindergarten/First Grade classroom. Keystone is an accredited private elementary school whose focus is on whole-child learning and individualized instruction. We believe in strengthening children socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. Our school has a working 15-acre farm and animals with whom the kids interact daily. We also have a spring-fed creek, pond, and ample outdoor play and learning spaces. Students enjoy art, pasture, music, teamwork-based physical education, hands-on projects, our cognitive sensory classroom, Spanish, Take Flight Literacy, and more throughout the day and week. 

Keystone believes that children must be socially, emotionally and physically safe in order to be ready to learn new academics and master them. Therefore, social and emotional safety take precedence over academics. We prioritize individualized instruction, where a teacher engages some children to work independently while the teacher works one-on-one throughout the day. Our classrooms, intentionally small and between 12-18 students, are full of busy, interactive learning. Children are nurtured and loved, known and included by all staff and students, and a family feel is abundant all through the school. 

A Keystone teacher must first love children, approach them with empathy, and treat them with respect. They must be good question-askers to help children guide themselves through the learning process. They must be a team player with the faculty as they work together throughout each day. They must be truthful, kind, and respected by their peers. 

This year, due to COVID-19, Keystone will be using a personalized data-based metric that allows us to track the spread of the virus in our community. Due to the current numbers, we will start the year in a virtual learning setting, which will begin with whole class instruction. The rest of the morning, teachers will meet online with individual students or small groups to personalize their learning. In the afternoon, groups of 3-4 students will come on campus to have in-person experiences with friends and faculty. These are outdoor, socially-distanced groups that will create art, play games, and enjoy time together in the sunshine. Our remote learning approach is unique in the state and uses the best research and recommendations for the health and safety of staff, students, and their families. We value our community and are committed to not risking their health. 

If you are looking for a school that truly respects students and faculty, then we would love to talk with you. Our first day of class is Thursday, August 13, 2020, but teachers are available for work week on August 6.
