We are seeking an experienced and dynamic educator to join our faculty as a biology teacher, coach, mentor, and dorm supervisor. This position involves teaching a full load (four sections) of biology and other courses, coaching two sports or activities, dorm supervision one night a week and one weekend a month. Wayland faculty are knowledgeable in the subjects they teach and deeply caring when it comes to their students. We expect all faculty members to be fully engaged in the school’s life and mission, in and out of the classroom. We take pride in our faculty. We know they are much more than teachers; they play a crucial role in the students’ lives and their success. Educational requirements include a bachelor’s degree, with a master’s preferred. Due to our academic program’s rigors, we want faculty who have made a deep, life-long commitment to learning. A boarding school faculty member’s vocational nature requires a person with mental and physical endurance to flourish in this highly-challenging and rewarding position.
Teaching, coaching, advising and personal skills preferred for success in this position at our school include:
• Ability to engage students in the study of biology in and outside the classroom, helping all students achieve their fullest academic and leadership potential.
• Enthusiasm and dedication to contributing to our healthy learning community, energetically supporting colleagues, sharing ideas and resources, and being there for others.
• Accepting and supportive attitude that encourages diverse perspectives and productive risk-taking to challenge students to think and explore opportunities that allow them to become their best.
•Compassion for students and colleagues, with a high level of cultural competency.
Additional Salary Information: We offer a competitive salary, room and board, and tuition remission, to name a few of the great benefits of being part of the Wayland family.
