Trevor Day School, an independent school in New York City, is seeking accomplished historians to teach both core and elective courses in our high school history program. In addition to having a Master’s Degree in History or Area Studies, the successful candidate will also have solid classroom teaching experience. Applicants with 5+ years of classroom experience and demonstrated leadership skills may be considered for Department Chair.
Trevor Day School is deeply committed to a curriculum guided by inquiry-based learning. In the High School History department, this means that our course offerings are built around essential questions and themes that drive student inquiry. It is our expectation that the successful candidate will be able to teach either ninth-grade World History or tenth-grade US History as well as to teach upper-level elective-courses, in their areas of expertise, with particular interest given to candidates who can address such Non-Western narratives as the Central Asian experience, East and/or South Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
We desire to continue to expand our digital inquiry efforts as well as to continue to develop an environmental focus for all the courses we teach. The History Department is a collaborative and collegial environment that also allows for considerable autonomy in developing advanced curriculum. In addition to teaching, all teachers in the high school also serve as an adviser to approximately seven (7-10) students.
