Maret School is looking for an inspiring humanities teacher committed to equity and inclusion, creating an anti-racist school, and reflecting Maret's Mission and Core Values. The ideal candidate possesses experience teaching a wide range of topics in the Humanities, including both English and history, and is passionate about teaching issues of diverse cultures and communities with an emphasis on non-Western cultures. Any background and/or experience teaching Psychology is an added bonus.
The Humanities Department welcomes lifelong learners willing to grow as teachers and mentors. We seek teachers with classroom experience differentiating instructional strategies, strong communication skills, a facility and nimbleness with technology, and a willingness to embrace modeling health and safety protocols in a school setting. This teacher will have the flexibility to work in either a virtual/distance learning, hybrid, or on-campus program.
Applicants should have a minimum of three to five years teaching experience in an upper school setting. Some middle school experience is preferred, along with an appreciation for interdisciplinary approaches. Prospective colleagues should embrace working with students who possess a range of abilities, talents, and learning styles. Please note: having a background/experience in coaching athletics and other extracurricular activities is a major plus. If you have taught an elective at the upper school level, please include course name(s). Any extra leadership roles (i.e. grade dean, program leader, advisor lead, etc.), experience in computer science, talents, and attributes should be included in your cover letter.
To learn more about our community, please visit www.maret.org. Our historic campus is in the heart of Washington, DC, and offers a unique setting, where students and faculty alike demonstrate a sense of energy, imagination, and entrepreneurial spirit. At Maret, everyone seeks a broader perspective—an expanded understanding of each other, our community, and the larger world. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of all we do. Maret School stands firmly behind the principle that the admission of students, the employment of faculty, the operation of programs, and the governance of the School be open to all who are qualified regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. We believe that this principle is both firmly grounded in the spirit of American democracy and in keeping with the civil responsibilities of an independent school.
If this description speaks to you and you are interested in working in the DC area, please send a cover letter and resume BY EMAIL ONLY to Nicholas Michalopoulos, chair of the Humanities Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately, we will not be able to respond personally to every applicant. You will hear from us only if your experience matches our current needs.
