Walden School, a small, independent, student-centered school, is looking for its next High School Math teacher and student advisor. As a K-12 school, this position is tasked with bridging our middle school and high school curriculum in a student-centered, engaging environment. Class responsibilities will include teaching the AP Calculus and upper-level math sections. We firmly believe at Walden that the most important duty of this position is developing a solid foundation in mathematical reasoning for our students. Walden’s Math department deeply cares about fostering inquiry-based and hands-on classroom experiences, collaborations between colleagues, and student mentorship. As a teacher and advisor, this position will also be tasked with facilitating advisory lessons that are based on a social/emotional curriculum. Candidates should feel mentoring students is equally as important as teaching content.
In accordance with the recommendations from the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Health Department, Walden School has developed a plan to deliver in-person for the 2020-2021 school year. We are confident that with our small class size, cohort grouping, and physical distancing we can offer a healthy and supportive educational environment, even in the midst of the pandemic. Walden is also well prepared for remote learning in case of school closure. With our 1 to 1 Chromebook program, Walden ensures that every student and faculty member has full access to synchronous and asynchronous online instruction. The health of our community is kept paramount, but the education of our students is not forgotten.
