McCallie is seeking an upper school history teacher capable of teaching world history, including at the AP level. The teacher should have broad liberal arts training, be student-focused, and be an experienced classroom teacher. The teacher will join a strong history department that engages boys through a variety of teaching styles, including project based learning.

The teacher will teach four to five sections and will also be involved in the school's extensive afternoon activity program, coaching a sport at a junior varsity or varsity level or involved in one of the many extracurricular activities that McCallie offers. In particular, candidates who have experience either coaching lacrosse or with outdoor programs and activities are encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate:
passion for and experience teaching history and engaging students in the study of history;
an ability to write well;
willingness to work cooperatively within a strong department, within course teams, and along vertical course sequences;

a deep understanding of McCallie’s mission - including both its commitment to character development and the ideals of honor, truth, and duty and its Christian foundation and Judeo-Christian heritage - and have a desire to live out and serve that mission for the good of McCallie boys.

a bachelor’s degree or higher in a field or fields relevant to teaching history;
