Break away from your day-to-day grind and once again love your work. We are a private school set up like a college campus in a beautiful, park-like setting in the West Hills of Portland. We educate over 600 children, pre-school through 12th grade. We welcome and value employees with diverse life experience.
This position involves teaching four year-long science classes, which could include elective courses that are half a year (two to add up to a single year). The Science Teacher teaches biology, chemistry and physics in our foundational ninth and tenth grade classes, as well as offers an advanced level elective course in their area of subject expertise. Additionally, they are comfortable teaching skills-based science, ideally but not necessarily through Next Generation Science Standards.
Complementing these skills should be a desire to teach students who encompass a range of academic abilities and an excitement about helping students build self-confidence through successful exploration and discovery.

About Catlin Gabel School
Catlin Gabel School is a coeducational, independent day school located on 54 acres in the West Hills neighborhood of Portland, Oregon formed in 1957 by the merger of the Catlin Hillside School, which had been founded as Miss Catlin’s School in 1911, and the Gabel Country Day School, whose roots extend to 1859 with the founding of The Portland Academy. The campus itself is a former farm with beautiful trees, fields, and plantings that has been modernized and upgraded over the years with new and renovated buildings that blend in with the natural surroundings.
We offer a broad and challenging curriculum based on a progressive philosophy with small classes designed to educate the total person, incorporating the academic along with the arts, physical education, and a strong sense of community service. The school enrolls nearly 740 students in Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade and has 100 faculty members committed to diversity among students, faculty and staff. Catlin Gabel is an equal opportunity employer.
