The Sagemont School
, part of the Spring Education Group family of schools, is seeking a passionate educator who ignites a fire within their students, inspiring them to become lifelong learners and ultimately positively impacting each child’s unique educational journey. 
The program incorporates a hands-on, problem-solving approach that unlocks students’ creativity and fosters critical thinking. Students gain core competency in design thinking and have increased opportunities to expand their technology aptitude through exposure to maker skills, robotics, programming, coding, and 3-D CAD modeling. Sagemont students learn “how to think” through the Innovation Lab program and become more resourceful, experimental, collaborative, and empathetic. Our students learn to think critically, question each other, learn from mistakes, and discover individual passions for their future ahead. We look to our teachers to be confident and caring leaders in the classroom, to guide our students through our intentional and balanced curriculum, and motivate them through high expectations in a collaborative and fun learning environment. Our purpose is to enhance student learning with creative and energetic educators who share their love of learning with students and colleagues.
