Your Dream Job as Elementary School Principal Awaits! Napa Junction is located in American Canyon, California, and is part of the Napa Valley Unified School District. It is a TK-5 Title 1 school. Our learners and their fabulous teachers have created a school where scholars consistently defy predictions of zip code, race and socio economics. We do this joyously and collaboratively, united in our quest to get better and better at meeting the needs of each student. Napa Junction has been a Demonstration Site for the New Tech Network for many years. We are one of their first elementary schools and have partnered with NTN to define a model for elementary schools. We are currently applying for status as a New Tech Network Spotlight School and expect to earn this title in the Spring. We have also earned the Magnet Schools of America Merit Award for the fifth time this year. The Magnet Schools of America award is based solely on test scores that evidence the closing of the Achievement Gap. School teams from all over the United States and Australia visit Napa Junction on a regular basis. The first thing every visitor comments on is how our school feels. The classrooms are filled with students who can tell you exactly what their current learning targets are, their progress toward learning them, and what they can do if they are stuck. A growth mindset is the norm. We know the value of strong relationships and believe that when we teach students how to work together, we are creating a space that enriches learning. A recent guest on campus was speaking with one of our younger students and remarked to her how difficult it might be to work with peers. The little one quickly rebutted, “Team work is dream work!” Our teachers recognize that student culture is first and foremost if they are to create a rich learning environment that is safe and supportive of the development of social and emotional, as well as academic, skills. Our staff persists in developing their own growth mindset, building relationships with peers, and constantly pushing to become stronger instructional leaders. Teachers take turns stepping into leadership roles, planning professional learning, facilitating workshops and keeping an eye on the pulse of the school. There is no shortage of critical thinkers and problem solvers on this team. Can you imagine working for such a smart and dynamic staff? We are a STEM magnet school so most of our units begin with the Next Gen Science Standards, then ELA and PBL is woven into each integrated unit. This speaks to our belief that Title I students need instruction that engages them, connects them, and challenges them. Our population has responded well to this style of instructional delivery. A goal is to continue to develop more units and to embed more math. Is that the expertise you could bring to the job? As if it wasn’t great enough, the new principal would also help open our brand new school campus. That’s right! It is being built as you read this and will most likely be ready in January 2021. It is a beautiful space with the American Canyon Wetlands in our front yard. If you are someone passionate about student learning, forward thinking, grounded, energetic, enjoy working with a strong team and have fresh ideas that will enhance our work, please apply! We want someone like you to move Napa Junction to the next level! -Napa Junction School The Napa Valley Unified School District is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
