Greenhills School seeks a dynamic and caring educator to teach math in our middle school beginning in the 2018-2019 school year. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to experiential, standards-based learning, and will enjoy forming relationships with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Our faculty is collaborative and communicative, and we are dedicated to constant improvement of our craft.
Greenhills middle school math teachers have a strong background in mathematics and in pedagogy appropriate for the developmental needs of our students. We believe that learning is relationship based, and we value our students as individuals. Our curriculum is flexible and seeks to prepare students to successfully complete the study of Algebra I by the end of the middle school years. We work in partnership with students, parents, and colleagues on grade-level teams to integrate and connect mathematics with the entire experience of our students, and we believe that all of our students can be successful in the study of mathematics.
Other contractual duties will include those expected of independent school teachers. These duties will be composed of some of the following responsibilities: advising, coaching, co-curricular work, team meetings, chaperoning, committee work, and the general supervision of students. Preference will be given to candidates with experience teaching in 6-12 settings. Undergraduate and/or graduate work in the subject field is required. Teachers with the appropriate educational background and two or more years of teaching experience are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send an electronic application, which includes a cover letter, a resume, and a list with contact information for three to five references to Jonathan Schwartz, Head of Middle School, at email@example.com and Ruth Miller, Chair of the Mathematics Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
