The Foundations program is looking for a History teacher on Thursdays at the CrossLife campus in Oviedo and Fridays at the Calvary campus in Winter Park.
The Foundations Program weaves together the subjects of History, Bible, Science, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts so that God’s hand in history is revealed. Students are organized into grade-levels. Second through sixth grade students rotate through subject-based classes taught by subject specialists. Subject teachers teach four (4) to five (5) classes per program day. Next year, our unit of study will be the Ancient World, from Creation to the Fall of Rome. We’ll survey the big events and personal stories of real people to provide deep, contextual meaning.
