The Drinking Gourd Elementary School in Eugene, Oregon is looking for an 
elementary classroom teacher with a Rethinking Schools perspective. This 
teacher will be responsible for teaching a group of 15 students, grade 3-5, 
basic academics plus art, music, PE, Spanish, computer, and conflict 
resolution skills.
Applicants must have teacher training and experience teaching similar age 
groups. Experience in creating integrated curriculum units and materials is 
necessary, as well as computer skills, basic Spanish, and familiarity with 
anti-bias and peace education goals and methods. A special interest in visual 
arts, music, dance, woodworking or science is a plus.
Salary: $30,000 plus health insurance.
The Drinking Gourd Elementary School is a small (27 students in the school), 
progressive, nonprofit school with a close-knit, informal community where the 
kids don't want to go home at the end of the day. The Drinking Gourd is a 
strong, successful anti-bias program that teaches children to respect each 
other, to see differences of all kinds as interesting rather than scary, to 
think critically about our society, and to see the world from a global 
perspective. The program actively works against gender stereotyping. 
Cooperative decision-making, noncompetitive games and conflict resolution 
contribute to the atmosphere and "kid-culture" of mutual encouragement. The 
small class size means that teachers know each student's social and emotional 
life as well as their academic levels; academic curriculum is completely 
individualized. Director and K-2 teacher Trisha Whitney is the author of Kids 
Like Us: Using Persona Dolls in the Classroom, and an acclaimed anti-bias 
The ideal candidate should be a high-energy person who teaches with 
enthusiasm and puts children's needs first. You should be excited about 
creating innovative integrated curriculum for this age group, using 
manipulative-based math, inclusive social studies, and community service. We 
are looking for someone with excellent communication skills who is willing to 
work closely with parents and the lead teacher. The Drinking Gourd actively 
encourages the participation of people of all races, religions, sexual 
orientations, disabilities and class backgrounds.
