Current Opportunities:

 
 

Mathematics Teacher

 

We are seeking applicants to join our STEM team as a mathematics teacher for our upper level courses which include Precalculus, Calculus, and beyond, as well as the Honors sections of these courses. Teachers in our Mathematics department aim to instill habits of mathematical thinking, which will prepare students for further inquiry in math and for the use of quantitative reasoning throughout life. The department's goal is to help students solve problems and to interpret data graphically, numerically, orally, symbolically, and analytically. Furthermore, the mathematics department recognizes that developing a mindset of curiosity and accompanying inquiry leads to deeper understanding. A desire to work closely, collaboratively, and inter-departmentally with other teachers in this effort is crucial.

 

Preference will be given to those who can teach courses within other branches of STEM disciplines (e.g. specifically biology and/or chemistry), and have interest in bringing interdisciplinary possibilities to reality. This position may be either full or part-time depending on the skills of the applicant.  

 

Other responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Leading an advisory group of 5-7 students 
  • Participating in our experiential learning program (Fall Trips, MLK Day, Community Days, and Minimester)
  • Proactive and timely communication with colleagues, parents, and students 
  • Attending occasional evening/weekend school events 

 

Minimum requirements include:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or a related field; Master’s is preferred
  • At least 2 years experience working with high school students  
  • Ability to facilitate a meaningful, engaging discussion among high school students
