The Education Center/Learning Specialist position in the Lower School exists to provide support and assistance for students and teachers as well as advisory assistance to parents as we begin the process of uncovering each child’s unique learning profile. This support and assistance may take the form of specific and detailed observation of a particular child’s functioning in the classroom, research and materials to enhance or enrich the teacher’s “toolkit” of strategies and approaches for individualizing the curriculum to meet the needs of each student, or hands on collaboration with classroom teachers, administrators and parents as together we discover and design the educational program that will help us to fully know and serve the needs of every student.
