We are looking for a full-time Upper School History teacher starting in the spring semester of the 2020-2021 school year. The ideal candidate would possess at least three years of teaching experience, would have a graduate degree, and would be able to teach American History to sophomores and Modern World History to freshmen. In addition to teaching four sections and two preps, full-time faculty members also oversee a ten-student advocacy group, and participate actively in other aspects of Menlo’s student life program.
Candidates should be comfortable designing and executing curriculum as part of a teaching team and be willing and able to need to learn how to teach in both a distance learning and hybrid teaching environment.
We look for educators who will inspire and support our students and be active participants in our vibrant learning community. Our ideal candidates are dynamic, highly collaborative and committed to professional growth in their discipline and in their teaching practice. We look for educators who are passionate about teaching, expert in their fields, and dedicated to helping all students achieve.
