Teacher Spanish Teacher

Roaring Fork School District

Job Description

Basalt High School seeks a full-time Spanish teacher, starting in the fall of 2022.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic record. The ability to teach AP level classes is desirable. More important is having a passion for teaching freshmen. We do not see teaching as a popularity contest but we accept that only teachers who are able to connect powerfully with students, who can engage them and be persistently, non-possessively warm, are fitted for this work.

Teaching is not a one-person performance. Commitment to collaboration with colleagues is essential. We are persuaded by Ron Edmonds, who said in the mid-1970s: “We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do this. Whether we do it or not must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we have not done it so far.”

Pay Range 

$50,000 to 71,895 **Based on education and years of experience

**Annual salary noted above is based on an 8 hour day (FTE 1) and full days worked calendar. Any position that is less than a full FTE/8 hours per day or late start will be prorated accordingly.



The Roaring Fork School District (RFSD) offers full district paid employee health benefits as well as voluntary vision, dental, and dependent coverage.  Other benefits include: paid leave, CO PERA (pension plan) enrollment with district contribution, TSA options, Employee Assistance and Wellness Programs. 

With 13 schools and 5,600 students, the Roaring Fork School District is located in the culturally vibrant and naturally stunning Roaring Fork Valley serving the communities of Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, and Basalt. The Roaring Fork Schools believe that teachers are our most important asset, and our teachers enjoy a true teacher voice in decision-making; clear and collaborative leadership; small class sizes (average – 21); a highly competitive and progressive salary schedule; access to our affordable housing program; and a culture of self-care and well-being. We believe diversity is a strength, and our staff makes a real difference for our students who come from different ethnicities, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds.
