ECSE SPED Teacher Position:

Our program is a partnership between six small school districts in Santa Rosa.  We serve students age 3 through 6th grade.  We currently have 5 special day PK classes and two Preschool Speech Programs.

We can offer an extensive amount of support and mentoring for a candidate interested in an internship.  The class is located at the Bennett Valley Early Childhood Education Center.  We work in collaboration with our local 4C's preschool.  The class would be supported by very experienced support providers (SLP, OT, APE, PT).  Our School Psychologist supports the class to address classroom management and any specific behavioral or social emotional needs. 
Our instruction is based on the CA Preschool Learning Foundations supported by evidence based practices to address our students' unique needs.  Our current teachers are all veterans and are excited to mentor and support a new member to our team.  Along with the support of our staff our district provides time weekly for training and planning.  Three full days of training a year are provided by the district as well.

Seeking Part Time Nanny:


Fluent Spanish speakers highly encouraged to apply. We are a fire fighter family in the Sunset District seeking a caretaker for an infant.  This is a part time position, 7-10 days per month.  Due to the nature of an irregular fire department schedule, days will change from week to week. Though, we can let you know what days are needed a month in advance.  We are particularly looking for a caretaker who is a mom and who would also like to bring her infant with her.  This would work well for a grad student who may not necessarily be in the classroom at particular times but is still accomplishing course work or intern hours.  Please contact Sara at cal_ortega@hotmail.com with a description of yourself and history caring for babies.
