Description

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an in-person role located in Brownsville, TX. Relocation assistance may be available.

Are you ready to break the mold of traditional teaching in early childhood? Alpha is calling for compassionate educators who excel at guiding the first steps of preschool-aged children. If you have a natural talent for engaging the youngest minds, this role offers you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Alpha's vision is a radical departure from the old-school educational model and embraces a world where learning is an adventure, not a chore. We're reimagining the most formative years in education, centering around learner-led experiences. What's your part? You're a guide, a mentor supporting each child's unique developmental journey. Your role is to inspire and celebrate each milestone as preschoolers embark on their lifelong love of learning.

In this role, you will conduct interactive sessions that are a seamless mix of fun and learning to foster motor and sensory skills. You will help preschoolers develop interpersonal skills through activities that encourage interaction, emotional recognition, and expression. Your focus will be on recognizing and addressing each child's unique developmental needs, ensuring they confidently reach their individual milestones at a pace that suits them.

Why choose Alpha?

  • Competitive pay - we believe you shouldn't take a pay cut to work in education.
  • Generous benefits and time off - we value our team and offer a comprehensive benefits package and paid time off.
  • Growth and learning culture - we model the growth & learning we expect our students to embrace, so you'll receive coaching, training, and opportunities for leadership.
  • Relocation assistance is available for highly qualified candidates.

What you will NOT be doing

  • Ditch the standard curriculum and top-down beauracracy - Alpha is all about innovative, flexible teaching that evolves with the latest trends, empowering you as an early childhood expert to implement best practices based on research
  • Forget about worksheets and cookie-cutter crafts - we encourage an active, hands-on environment where kids learn by doing and playing
