Community School of Naples, an independent, college preparatory school, is currently seeking a motivated and talented Upper School English teacher.
A CSN English teacher will demonstrate both passion and expertise in the teaching of English language and literature. Through careful, active reading and the respectful exchange of ideas in discussion, our students come to understand rich texts, recognizing the intentional choices of writers--from diction and syntax to patterns of allusion and figurative language--and appreciating how those choices create meaning. We want our students to become lifelong readers who reach for a book both for pleasure and for their own edification, acknowledging the many ways that literature allows us to explore the full scope of the human experience.
A focus on clear, effective critical reading, thinking, and writing skills is at the heart of what we do. To that end, requirements for qualified candidates include:
Experience teaching, evaluating, and responding clearly to student writing
An understanding of and a commitment to each phase of the writing process
Development of a vibrant, challenging curriculum, including a robust independent reading program
Facilitation of meaningful, mature, student-centered discussion
A willingness to advise student publications
Balanced integration of technology
A commitment to ongoing professional development
The ability to work both independently and within a dynamic, forward-thinking, and cohesive team of fellow English teachers
