The Field School seeks full-time teachers for the 2019-20 school year. Teachers teach multiple grade levels and often across disciplines. We currently have need in our digital arts department (expertise with Adobe suite required), yearbook, psychology, environmental science, biology and music (specifically instrumental music: studio band, jazz band, audio engineering).
The Field School, founded in 1972 is a co-ed independent day school in Northwest Washington, DC serving grades 6-12. Field believes that learning occurs best in an informal, personal and non-institutional environment. Field has a history of hiring teachers who, because of the many training and development opportunities we offer, find us a very good place to start and advance teaching careers.
A full load of teaching typically includes four sections of class, two seasons of coaching and advising student clubs and activities. We have particular coaching needs in our basketball, soccer and softball programs. Candidates who have or are willing to obtain a commercial driver's license and/or have coaching or playing experience in the above sports will be strongly considered.
Please fill out the online application which can be found on Field's employment page.
Candidates must be energetic, have a love for kids and a passion for a wide range of subjects. Candidates should have a four year college degree, be self-starters, but highly collaborative in style and eager to learn, flexible, outgoing, highly personable and possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.
