Trinity School, a co-educational, K-12 institution located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, seeks a Computer Science Teacher to serve students in Grades 7-12, beginning September 2019.
Trinity Computer Science students learn how to connect the virtual world with the physical world as they interact with a wide variety of software applications, programming languages, and hardware platforms. We emphasize the creative application of coding, as well as the in-depth study of important concepts in computational thinking, problem solving, and computer science. Our four years of sequential Computer Science courses value computing as a powerful interdisciplinary toolset, one that should be used to benefit the human condition in a responsible and ethical manner. Students learn sophisticated techniques for building larger and larger projects, with planning, prototyping, documentation, and testing as essential design requirements. We take a humanistic approach to engineering, placing a profound emphasis on both interpersonal communication and the use of an introspective lens in feedback-driven iterative development.
Our Computer Science department is committed to delivering a curriculum that:
encourages fluency in multiple programming languages and a variety of standard application formats;
highlights the interaction between software and hardware, and the interplay of theory and application;
embeds concepts within an interdisciplinary framework, with engaging projects that are both immediately relevant and forward-thinking;
strives for the timely integration of newly robust technologies;
offers a range of learning activities, including pair, group, and independent projects and presentations; and
endeavors to be inclusive and accessible, so that a diverse student population might explore computing at their individual experience level.
Due to increased enrollment, we’re looking for an outstanding, student-focused educator to join our efforts to set new standards for pedagogy in Computer Science. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of our curriculum, candidates with a strong background knowledge in at least one other STEAM discipline (Science, Engineering, Art, or Math) are highly desired.
Qualified candidates will possess intellectual curiosity, an aptitude for learning, a commitment to ongoing professional development, an eagerness to extend oneself for others, and a sense of humor.
An Equal Opportunity Employer, Trinity School seeks candidates who will add to the diversity of our school community.
