Park City Day School Teachers

Abiding in the tradition of progressive education begun by John Dewey, Park City Day School rises as high as the effectiveness of its teachers. The success of our collective enterprise depends upon the collaborative efforts of a team of highly-motivated educators.  The School values diversity but endeavors to select and retain individual teachers that consistently demonstrate the following qualities.


PCDS teachers evidence a successful academic background and a mindset for life-long learning and continuous professional improvement.

Rapport with Children

PCDS teachers instruct in a broad range of curricular and co-curricular areas; however, the true subject (not object) of a PCDS education is children.  PCDS teachers’ ability to connect, both individually and collectively, with children is critical to their success.


Although the self-confidence and autonomy to plan and lead classes is essential, PCDS teachers collaborate with colleagues and share ideas to ensure that the whole is more than the sum of its parts.  In peer groups, successful Park City Day School teachers serve both as contributing followers and respectful leaders.


As invested citizens of a school community and world network, PCDS teachers model the active intellectual and moral engagement necessary for a successful, sustainable society.


To set a high standard in a world characterized by constant and rapid changes, PCDS teachers adapt creatively in response to institutional and global circumstances, advances in educational technology and innovation in instructional methods.  Successful PCDS teachers plan their courses well to provide consistently excellent instruction and communication within and between grade levels, but are ready and able to shift in order to take advantage of unplanned educational opportunities.

PCDS Values

Our teachers daily model our five School Values - Integrity, Responsibility, Respect, Teamwork, and Compassion - and actively integrate them into the fabric of our school community through reflective opportunities and other daily “teachable moments.”

Teachers are contracted annually for the year to come on the basis of their success in the current year.

Why Park City Day School?

“The mountains in our backyard provide amazing outdoor education experiences for Park City Day School students. As a teacher at PCDS, I have the unique opportunity to bring my class to a trailhead steps from our school to hike and snowshoe, and I love sledding during recess!"
