Where Small Steps Become Giant Leaps

The River School educates children from 18 months through 5th grade and is known nationally for its inclusion program for children with hearing loss–15% of our students have a hearing loss.

The River School uses a unique co-teaching model–it pairs a master’s level educator and a speech-language pathologist (SLP) full time in every classroom. River also trains graduate students from across the country. A typical classroom teaching team includes the educator and SLP and a graduate student in either education or speech-language pathology. Class sizes are small allowing for strong teacher-student relationships and individualized teaching and learning.

If you welcome collaboration and are interested in teaming with a speech-language pathologist to optimize student language, academic and social development this placement may be for you.

We require all classroom educators to hold a master’s degree in early childhood, elementary or special education.

The River School model is progressive so expect to be planning classroom themes and teaching through project-based learning. There are no desks at River. Only spaces for collaboration and experimentation.
