Grade 5 Lead Teacher 

Trinity School is an outstanding elementary day school serving preschool to Grade 5 in Menlo Park, CA. Located across the street from Stanford and on Sand Hill Road, Trinity is a purposefully small school and has partnered with parents for over fifty years to grow children, one at a time, into motivated and capable problem solvers with big hearts.


Trinity School is excited to announce an opening for a Grade 5 Lead Teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. This is an exceptional opportunity for a teacher who is looking to join a team-oriented, inclusive and professional learning community.  The Lead Teacher will be responsible for maintaining a positive and appropriate educational environment in their homeroom and creating a program that meets the intellectual and emotional needs of each child.

Trinity upholds the partnership between home and school with role clarity and transparent communication to ensure the child’s well being and progress. The Lead Teacher is joined in the classroom by a paraeducator, whom they supervise.


The ideal candidate will possess 3 + years of teaching experience in a lower elementary classroom environment and have a strong ability to collaborate and a willingness to contribute to a diverse, equity, and inclusion framework.
