Greens Farms Academy seeks a Middle School language teacher to begin in August 2021. The ideal candidate will be proficient in both Spanish and French and have experience working with middle-school-aged students, athletic coaching, or guiding young learners in summer camps or similar youth programs.
For all positions, we look for candidates who enjoy working with colleagues in a collaborative environment; are flexible, creative, and adaptable; demonstrate a willingness to fully engage in the life of the school in and outside of the classroom; and are committed to fostering a culture of belonging for all students under our care.
The new teacher will join a collegial Middle School faculty who put children at the center of everything they do and who are committed to knowing and loving every child. The division’s motto is “Dare to Be Different. Dare to be Yourself” and every faculty member strives to support students in their social and emotional learning.
GFA’s World Languages Program is composed of four languages: Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Latin. The program is vertically aligned, based on ACTFL’s proficiency level descriptors and targets. The department is committed to target-language immersion as a means of instruction, and innovative pedagogical strategies to sustain student engagement and to foster the ability to interact in the target language. The new teacher would join a team of collaborative language teachers who play a critical role in each level of proficiency in the student's journey to the most advanced level possible at GFA.
