Thomas MacLaren School, a charter public school located centrally in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, is accepting applications for Lower School Kodály music teachers for grades K through 5.

At MacLaren, music is not an elective or a “special” but is a central pillar in a rich, holistic, comprehensive liberal arts education that seeks to help students become more fully awake and alive to the world. Just as all of our Upper School students play a stringed instrument and have daily Orchestra, all of our elementary students have daily Kodály-concept music class. Lower School teachers enter into a community that deeply values music and the arts. They enjoy working with young people in an atmosphere of kindness and courtesy, and love to lead students in our pedagogy of learning for its own sake, not for a grade. At MacLaren, we don’t teach to the test—we teach.

MacLaren is an award-winning liberal arts school that has built a culture of wonder and rigor in grades K through 12. Led by a faculty of thinkers, musicians, mathematicians, writers, and scientists who constitute a true community of learners, our students follow a common curriculum in the arts, humanities, mathematics, and the sciences, with no tracking. These students have excelled both academically and artistically—setting, for example, the Colorado state record on the composite ACT, winning honors at the statewide orchestra competition, and being one of just two elementary choirs from across the state selected to perform at the CMEA conference. More importantly, they have done so in a warm, humane environment that seeks to give the very best education to every student who walks through our doors, regardless of race, gender, or family income. At MacLaren, we believe that all human beings—and thus even the youngest children—can know truth, create beauty, and practice goodness. We seek teachers who recognize the inherent dignity and specialness of childhood, and who are able to lead students in a culture of rigor and wonder.
