McLean School (mcleanschool.org), a K-12 co-educational independent school in Potomac, Maryland, seeks applicants for an Upper School Biology and Environmental Science Teacher to begin August 2019. McLean School has for sixty-five years been helping bright students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. Through our Abilities Model™, we embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges. We recognize and teach to individual strengths, responding to areas of challenge, but never defining students by them.
The Biology and Environmental Science Teacher will have an appreciation for students with mild to moderate learning challenges, and ADHD, and seek to build self-confidence in our students as they learn to advocate and to prepare for success in college and beyond. This position requires a dynamic science educator with vision and patience. Most important, he or she will subscribe to our Core Values, our Mission, and our Philosophy, and will seek passionately to uphold and promote them.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, résumé, statement of educational philosophy, and list of references to Head of Upper School, Dr. Josephine Diemond at firstname.lastname@example.org.
