St. Paul’s School for Girls is pleased to announce an opening for a full time Upper School
Spanish teacher to start as soon as possible for the 2018-2019 school year.
St. Paul’s School for Girls is an independent, all girls’ college-preparatory school enrolling 415 students in grades five through twelve, founded in 1959, in the Episcopal tradition. St. Paul’s Plus, a division of St. Paul’s School for Girls, is an educational childhood program for ages six weeks through Pre-K. St. Paul’s School for Girls educates hearts and minds in an inclusive community that is grounded in the Episcopal values of respect, integrity, and spiritual growth. We empower voice, nurture intellectual curiosity and creativity, and inspire confident leaders who serve in the world.
The ideal candidate will be a creative, passionate, and experienced Spanish teacher with a Master’s degree and independent school experience who inspires students and thrives in a collaborative atmosphere. The ideal candidate will not only design lessons that integrate ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines but will also inspire a love for learning and strengthen the critical thinking and cultural competency of his or her students. In addition, this teacher will be responsible for facilitating our world language program in the upper school by creating lessons that are developmentally appropriate and embrace the cultural characteristics of the language.
In addition to teaching, this faculty member will serve as a student advisor, mentor a club, and contribute in other significant ways to the work of the community. SPSG supports the model of the teacher-coach as connections between teacher and student scaffold the development of the whole child, and thus the School is especially interested in candidates with coaching experience and/or those who are able to demonstrate initiative and serve as coaches in a variety of significant ways outside of the classroom. Other responsibilities and duties are shared among faculty members.
In addition to contributing to the conversations and goals of world language department, candidates should be eager to contribute to SPSG’s school-wide goals: providing rigorous, relevant, and responsive, student-centered instruction that meets the needs of a range of students; developing a more multicultural curriculum; and integrating technology as it inspires and facilitates learning.
Therefore, this individual must possess strong communication skills; be well-versed in school life and pedagogy; and understand the developmental needs of girls.
This position is 100% full-time and a 10-month position. Salary is commensurate with experience. The successful candidate is eligible for full benefits package including, but not limited to, medical, dental, vision, disability, flexible spending and 403(b). Additional benefits include AFLAC, free lunch, dry cleaning service delivery and fitness center. Tuition remission is also available for full-time employees for 50% reduction in tuition fees at St. Paul’s School for Girls, St. Paul’s School and at St. Paul’s Plus’ Pre-School program for children ages two years old and older.
To apply for the position, please forward cover letter, resume and list of references to Shannon Duckett, Human Resources Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. SPSG is an equal opportunity employer.
