Allen Academy seeks an enthusiastic and creative full-time Math teacher, beginning in the fall of 2019. This teacher should have a passion for working with young people, a willingness to work in a collegial setting and an ability to use technology as a tool of engagement to foster deep learning. This position also requires an adaptive candidate who can work effectively and compassionately with students. At this point it is possible that the candidate could teach primarily in either the Middle (grades 6-8) or Upper School (grades 9-12), but a comfort with both would be preferable. Student-centered lesson plans and the integration of technology in the classroom are increasing emphases at Allen. Our Math department requires a flexible candidate with a growth mindset. This individual will participate collaboratively and professionally with other faculty and staff to promote the general well-being of the school community in a manner that supports and promotes Allen Academy’s Mission.
