The Stone Independent School seeks a full-time Upper School Mathematics Teacher for the 2021-22 school year. We are a problem-based, interdisciplinary day school looking for candidates interested in shaping an evolving skills-based mathematics curriculum for our 9th - 12th grade students. The Stone Independent School seeks employees who want to contribute as part of a community of learners, educators, and professionals who act with empathy, ethicality, and gratitude, striving to make the world a measurably better place. All employees are expected to be full members of the school community, engaging in student life, academic purpose, and the school’s mission.
A typical teaching load consists of three sections of 5-20 students and one prep each five-week term. The opportunity exists to teach all levels of mathematics from algebra through multivariable calculus and linear algebra. Our math courses are highly collaborative and hands-on, while maintaining respect for traditional foundations. Desmos and R statistical computing technology are used regularly and familiarity with those tools is an asset. Students in our math courses are regularly required to submit writing and reflection assignments as well. Teachers at Stone are encouraged to teach core courses as well as electives outside of their core content areas -- and to enjoy the vulnerability and exploratory nature of doing so!
Additionally, full-time faculty members teach one five-day course during Intensive Week, help lead morning community time, serve as club and House leaders, mentors, advisors, and -- eventually -- coaches. Our teachers are engaged in the work of designing curriculum and creating a school culture alongside our students. The right candidate will be inquisitive, interested in educational design, engaged by Stone’s mission and creative ethos, highly energetic, and committed to working with adolescents.
The faculty at Stone is comprised of innovative educators who like to ask "why" -- about pedagogy, about school culture, about education. If you are interested in discussing a career at Stone, send a letter of interest, a short essay explaining your philosophy of education, a resumé, and a list of 3 references to Abby Kirchner (email@example.com).
