San Francisco Friends School, a K–8 Quaker school located in the Mission District of San Francisco, seeks an experienced middle school science teacher for the first semester of our upcoming school year: August 19, 2019–January 30, 2020.
The school seeks teachers who resonate with the Friends school mission, which provides an exemplary education in a community dedicated to problem-solving, service to others, simplicity, social justice, and quiet reflection. Our Quaker mission also compels us to create a diverse and inclusive community; we seek a person who will thrive and contribute to such a community, both within and beyond the walls of the school.
Successful candidates will be experienced middle school teachers who are committed to science education. The SFFS science curriculum is inquiry-based; often beginning with a central question, it is driven by curiosity. Students seek answers through research, experimentation, and data. Candidates should have a strong science background and be invested in collaborating with colleagues and working closely with students.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, teamwork for curriculum development, student assessment, supervising an advisory group, and supervision of students at lunch and recess.
Full-time, Fall Semester 2019–2020: August 19, 2019–January 30, 2020
The San Francisco Friends School welcomes all students and staff and does not discriminate on the basis of ethnic origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation or disability in administration of its educational policies, enrollment or hiring policies, and other school-administered programs.
