Phoenix Country Day School is seeking a dynamic Middle School Social Studies teacher for the 2019-2020 school year, who will work closely with a grade level team, creating cross-curricular opportunities when possible. Research-based and project-based learning form the foundation of the class, as students utilize their critical thinking skills to examine various cultures, geography, dynamics, and identities through the analysis of historical content and current events.
Additional responsibilities will include, but may not be limited to, implementing a skill-based grading system, serving as an advisor for approximately ten students, chaperoning a class trip, and being a positive, innovative member of the middle school team.
The successful candidate will have a minimum of a Bachelor's degree in education, history, or a related field. A Master's degree is preferred, as is prior middle school teaching experience.
