Holy Child School at Rosemont is a Catholic, coeducational, independent school (preschool - 8th grade) with 315 students located near the campuses of Villanova University and Rosemont College in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. We strive to Nurture Excellence in a Joyful Catholic Community, and we seek applicants to help us live and implement that vision statement.
The Middle School offers a purposeful and balanced program that infuses traditional and innovative teaching styles in a warm and nurturing environment, preparing students for the next step in their learning.
We have an opening for a Middle School Language Arts teacher and so we seek to hire a dynamic, evidence-based educator who is committed to helping emerging adolescents grow to their full potential, academically, and socially/emotionally. This position is full-time, teaching students in grades 6 and 8, and serving as an advisor and homeroom teacher as well. Competitive candidates will have experience teaching middle school (grades 5-8) students and must possess a Bachelor’s Degree. Demonstrated achievement in supporting students in reading, writing, and/or executive function skills, in addition to teaching language arts, will make candidates particularly competitive, though there is flexibility and the focus is on recruiting a highly effective educator.
This position begins in September and includes a competitive compensation package with healthcare benefits and retirement contributions after a year of service.
The ideal candidate will:
Understand and appreciate our mission and philosophy as a Holy Child School
Be energetic and enthusiastic about teaching and working with adolescent children
Use an evidence-based approach and best practices of teaching and learning
Value and excel at integrating language arts, social studies, and technology, and place a strong emphasis on writing
Have at least 3-5 years of experience teaching in a school
Be a collaborator with faculty, staff, admin, and parents
Have strong organizational skills and attention to detail
Be able to communicate clearly and effectively, verbally and in writing
Have earned a Bachelor’s degree in English, history or an academic subject
The ability to coach basketball, football or field hockey, or contribute to the extracurricular life of the School in a different way, is a significant plus.
Interested candidates should forward résumés and a cover letter to Tom Lengel, Head of School, at firstname.lastname@example.org and Associate Head Diane Hren at email@example.com.
We will begin reviewing files immediately and hope to have completed this search by early April.
