Pine Cobble School is a mile from the Williams Campus on Gale Road. We are in our 81st year of operation. We serve a broad socio-economic mix of families who want an independent way of thinking about their child’s education. We are very child centered and the joy of learning is our biggest focus. We strive every day to nurture in each student a lifelong passion for learning, respect for all human beings and our environment, and a strong sense of self. Come be part of a kind, caring, forward thinking community of student and adult learners. Contact Sue Wells ([email protected]) if interested.
Lower School Math
We are looking for a college student with a strong math background (being a math major is surely not necessary) to work 3-5 hours a week (one hour daily if possible) with third, fourth, or fifth graders.
Upper School Math
Pine Cobble is looking for a Williams student to be in either a 7th or 8th grade math class for three to five hours a week. Time of day can be worked around the student’s schedule. Make learning fun for young, inquisitive minds, and join our math team at Pine Cobble. We are looking for one Williams student to help in 7th and one in 8th grade.
After School Program Assistant
Pine Cobble School is seeking a wonderful caregiver to be part of the After School Program. You would be part of a caring community who provides a nurturing environment that celebrates each child’s unique qualities and recognizes the value of each individual. If you are self-motivated and reliable, pro-active and patient when it comes to conflict resolution, and you value the importance of a caring environment, we would like to meet you. The hours are from 3-5:30pm, Monday to Friday.
Arts Teaching Assistant
Pine Cobble believes in the arts. Through art, our students express themselves, communicate ideas, observe closely, integrate new ideas, and nurture an open mind. The arts inspire wonder, offer solace, teach children to problem-solve, take risks, and engage fully – with the mind, body, and spirit. That’s why art is integrated into our curricula at every grade level. Pine Cobble students experience visual art through drawing, painting, sculpture, sewing, music, ceramics, theatre, and more. In each of these endeavors, it’s the process, not necessarily, the product, that matters most. We are looking for a Williams student to work with our art faculty to help inspire students to think differently and joyfully. Time of day can be worked around the student’s schedule.
Intermediate School English Teaching Assistant
Do you believe great books are the way to teach literary elements, as well as a foundation for critical thinking and discussion? In this role you will work with our sixth grade English teacher to introduce books such as Gene Luen Yang’s 2006 National Book Award winning graphic novel: American Born Chinese. Help support a year of exploration, reading different genres of literature, consistent writing, and learning how to apply editing suggestions in written work.
