Subsitute Teachers

Lancaster Friends School seeks experienced substitute teachers for K through 8th grade. Qualified candidates should have an understanding of the cognitive and social-emotional development of elementary school children and be well-versed in interdisciplinary curriculum, project work, and anti-bias curriculum. 

Students at LFS are challenged to realize their intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual potential. A spirit of inquiry reigns in the classroom and students are encouraged to think creatively, to feel the condition of others, and to listen to their inner selves. Lancaster Friends expects students to be critical, independent thinkers who can work with a spirit of cooperation, understanding, and tolerance of the views of others. Quaker values and practices pervade the curriculum and culture, encouraging each community member to value diversity, seek peace and justice, and demonstrate respect for self and others.
