The Winston School of Short Hills is a coed, 1st-8th grade, independent school serving children with language-based learning differences. Our students have the potential to meet with academic success but have been largely unsuccessful due to such challenges as dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADHD, low processing speed, central auditory processing disorder and, poor organizational, and executive functioning skills. Our reading programs are Orton-Gillingham-based, and we believe in and a multi-modality approach to teaching in every discipline and grade level. The majority of our students move on to mainstream public, independent, boarding, and parochial schools. Winston is fully accredited through the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the NAIS.
The ideal Winston teacher has a passion for teaching, their chosen subject area(s), and working with children who struggle to learn. They are patient, observant, compassionate, and team players willing to work with their peers to determine and provide the best educational and instructional experience for each student. They are eager to improve their craft through ongoing professional development and willing to bring new ideas and programs to Winston. Winston teachers often share their expertise, hobbies, and outside interests with students through the Winston Center for Learning, our after-school program.
Full-time employees are entitled to health insurance and a generous personal/sick day package. After a year of employment, full-time employees may participate in Winston's retirement program.
