Full-time positions are eligible for benefits, including medical, dental, paid vacation and holidays (including your birthday!) and a discounted Trimet pass. We are also continually seeking positive, hardworking substitute teachers and support staff to be a part of our organization, with the potential to move into permanent teaching positions as they open up.

Since we promote from within whenever possible, there are opportunities for professional growth within the organization. We provide a collaborative, team-oriented atmosphere with a coaching management style, and do our best to make sure teachers feel supported, valued, and respected as professionals.
Joyful Noise has four 5-star rated centers in the Portland area. We are committed to providing high quality programming for young children and their families. Our ultimate goal is to convey significant, positive and lasting benefits to the life of a child. Professional, caring teachers are essential to us reaching this goal! We are seeking people who demonstrate interpersonal skills, are comfortable with team teaching, and have a devotion to providing quality programming and environments for children.
