    Position Overview
    Woodland School seeks an inspiring and nurturing Part-Time Design and Technology teacher.  Design Technology is using creativity and innovation and incorporates a hands-on, problem- solving approach that unlocks students’ creativity and fosters critical thinking, empowering them with twenty-first century skills and the mindset to achieve success across all areas of the curriculum and their lives. Students gain core competency in basic design thinking and have increased opportunity to expand their technology aptitude through exposure to robotics, programming, 3-D CAD modeling, and maker skills. Woodland School encourages students to engage with technology to improve their learning, prepare them for the future, and enhance their lives.

    Through the technology program, Woodland students establish design thinking skills, learning “how to think” and become more resourceful, experimental, collaborative, and empathetic. This advanced thinking enables them to approach challenges with a more critical eye and makes them better learners in all areas of study. The technology engagement at Woodland becomes more intricate and sophisticated as students advance through lower school and middle school.
