The science teacher will also serve as an 8th or 6th grade advisor and ideally coach one or two seasons of 7th/8th grade athletics. In addition to developing lesson plans and instructional materials, the candidate must use a variety of strategies to meet the learning needs of children, and be willing to communicate regularly with other faculty and parents about the academic, social, and emotional health of students. This position offers the candidate many opportunities for leadership both within the classroom and throughout the greater community. The 8th/6th grade science teacher reports to the Head of Upper School (grades 6-8), serves as a key member of the 8th or 6th grade teaching/advising team, and works closely with other science faculty.
The ideal candidate will have strong teaching experience, a deep knowledge of adolescent child development and best practices for teaching grades 6-8, exceptional written/verbal communication skills, and an infectious sense of fun.
