Templeton Academy is seeking full time middle school faculty members for the 2020-2021 school year. Templeton Academy invites teachers passionate about innovative, collaborative education and their specific content area. Our middle school faculty teach in 2-hour blocks 4 days a week, in an integrated project-based English and History curriculum.
We are a microschool with three character values: kindness, curiosity, and growth mindset. We look for these in our teachers as well as our students. We require weekly lesson plans primarily based on experiential learning, weekly observations, and weekly coaching sessions. We are a very active school and this teacher is required to plan at least one off-campus activity a week, as well as chaperoning an hour daily exploratory (elective) block. 1 hr daily planning plus lunch. No academic class on Fridays (whole group cross-curricular and community meeting days). We are small enough to be personally in touch with every individual, yet large enough to offer a broad range of courses. Our model combines a warm, inviting atmosphere with great teaching that allows our students to flourish.
Successful applicants will demonstrate previous high-quality teaching experience, a willingness to be coached, emotional equanimity, and a desire to innovate in the classroom. Applicants can send their resume to Kalee.Barbis@templetonacademy.org.
Preference given to advanced degrees
