Windward School, a grade 7-12 college-preparatory, independent day school in vibrant West Los Angeles, seeks an experienced educator to join our History Department. Windward faculty and administrative leaders continually seek best practices and educational partnerships to help our students and faculty pursue their passions, engage in cutting edge work, and lead meaningful lives.
Windward’s mission, as a college-preparatory school, is to challenge each student to achieve academic excellence in a nurturing environment. Windward teachers, parents, and administrators work as a team to encourage each student to be responsible, caring, well informed, ethical and prepared, thus promoting the fullest development of the individual.
The Windward History Department is looking for a dynamic, innovative teacher to join our collaborative team. The successful candidate will be interested in team-based course design and experienced in challenging all the learners in a classroom to think critically about the past. Because we expect that a significant portion of this position will involve teaching middle school, we are particularly interested in candidates who have experience with the middle school classroom and enjoy working with students at this stage of development. Knowledge of student centered pedagogies that provide scaffolded routes for diverse learners to develop understanding and build historical thinking skills is highly desirable. Teachers of all areas of history are encouraged to apply, as are those with backgrounds in related fields.
Send resume, cover letter and references to David Unger, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org. No calls please. Thank you for your interest.
Advanced degree and teaching experience at the Middle School level preferred.
