Established in 1888, The Kiski School is one of the oldest, independent, all-boys, college preparatory boarding schools in Pennsylvania and the United States. Home to 185 boys from 18 countries, Kiski offers an academically rigorous curriculum that includes Advanced and Honors courses, 12 varsity sports, and a community that allows boys to thrive through project-based learning and self-discovery. Kiski's beautiful, 350-acre campus is located in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, 30 miles east of Pittsburgh, PA.
Kiski seeks a full-time high school Spanish teacher to teach four sections of Spanish including Spanish I and Spanish II in small classes with a focus on the learning style of the individual. An ideal candidate will have native or near-native fluency in Spanish, experience integrating technology into the classroom, and a bachelor’s or higher-level degree.
Kiski offers its teachers a close-knit family of educators and students and a spacious campus including trails and wooded areas. Teachers have opportunities for professional development and are invited to bring their passions into the classroom. New and experienced teachers receive the necessary support and freedom to grow as professionals while helping others to do the same.
As a member of a boarding school community, candidates will display an enthusiasm for all aspects of life at the school. The success of our programs relies on the active participation of our faculty members in the school community including maintaining an engaging and inviting classroom, performing residential duties in the dormitories, and coaching or advising young men. Kiski looks for enthusiastic faculty to share their passions with students.
Applicants should send a letter of interest, a resume or CV, and a statement of educational philosophy to Mr. Brad Kwiatek, Dean of Faculty, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About The Kiski School
Kiski has a long history and a rich heritage dating back to 1888.
The educational philosophy of Kiski’s founder, Dr. Andrew Wilson, was greatly influenced by the preceptorial system he experienced as a Princeton University student. Today, this teaching method – based on small classes and individualized tutorial sessions – remains the defining element of the Kiski experience. A traditional college preparatory curriculum is enhanced by diverse offerings in the arts and a robust technology program. Small classes allow our teachers , almost all of whom live on campus, to model the habits we expect our students to learn and practice: honesty, civility, tenacity and open-mindedness. Our teachers are experts in the education of boys . They understand their unique learning needs, they know how to reach and teach young men, and, most importantly, they love what they do. Moreover, our faculty is committed to helping our students develop what many have termed 21st century skills - the proficiencies they will need to survive and thrive in college and beyond.
