Job Description

Elementary School Substitute Teachers

Crossroads School is an independent, K-12, coed school of nearly 1,200 students, located in the beach city of Santa Monica, CA. Founded in 1971, Crossroads was founded on five core commitments: to academic excellence; to the arts; to the greater community; to a student body of social, racial, and economic diversity; and to the development of each student’s physical well-being and full human potential.
Crossroads has been recognized for decades as an innovative force in education and for the public good. Its progressive philosophy, strong community and culture, emphasis on diversity and inclusion (50% of students and 38% of faculty identify as people of color), and a belief that all domains of school life (arts, athletics, service, etc.) are equally integral to a child’s development and well-being have made it a top choice for families in Los Angeles. It is a particularly exciting time for the School: current initiatives include the fully endowed Equity & Justice Institute, an ambitious 15-point strategic plan and a capital campaign to construct a performing arts complex on the 21st Street campus.
