A first grade teacher at PLA is one of the greatest jobs ever! If you are disciplined and set the expectations, the scholars will respect you and want to learn. You will teach reading, math, writing, and social studies/science. Teachers will be expected to follow the Journeys reading curriculum and the Singapore math curriculum. Writing and science/social studies are more open for teachers to include their own curriculum. You are expected to directly follow the expectations set by the administration for classroom procedures. The day runs from 7:30 to 3 for teachers and 7:45-3:45 for scholars.
