At San Domenico, we believe that what students do with their education is as important as their academic performance. Every day we encourage our students to not just study, but also to reflect on their learning, find their purpose, and celebrate in community, because an exceptional education, where values and academics join together, creates more than just great students – it develops great people. San Domenico is a K-12, co-ed school, with international boarding and day students in our Upper School.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced and accomplished middle school teacher who will teach 6th-grade math and 7th-grade pre-algebra, serve as an advisor, and participate in middle school activities that support the divisional program. The candidate will be experienced in numerous modalities of instruction in which learning is academically rigorous as well as engaging, lively, and communication-based. Classroom management and digital citizenship require close attention and instruction, and therefore experience teaching middle school is essential.
