Benton-Stearns Education District-Full-Time Special Education Teachers-Setting IV
The Benton-Stearns Education District #6383 is seeking qualified applicants for full time (1.0) teaching positions for our Setting IV and residential programs for the 2022-23 School Year. We have programs located in the Minnesota communities of Cold Spring, Sartell, and Sauk Rapids. We have a variety of teaching positions available.
At Benton Stearns, we serve students from our 6 member districts of: Foley, Holdingford, Kimball, Rocori, Sartell, and Sauk Rapids-Rice. Students in our programs have been referred to us by their home districts due to needing extra support not available in the general education setting. Our programs support students with a variety of disabilities and significant social, emotional, and academic learning challenges in grades kindergarten to twelve plus. During their time at Benton-Stearns, students learn life, social, and academic skills with the goal of reintegrating back to their home schools. We are relationship based and use positive supports to increase motivation and decrease unexpected behaviors. We offer small class sizes with low adult to student ratios. Case management typically ranges from 6-10 students.
Applicants should have the ability and skills to work with high needs students. These positions will be responsible for development of positive behavioral interventions, classroom curriculum, case management and due process. The candidate will be expected to communicate effectively with parents, students, district staff, social workers, probation officers and co-workers.
