Greenhills School, an independent school of 550 students in grades 6-12, has an opening for a highly-qualified and innovative middle school teacher. Ideal candidates will find great joy in working with young adolescents, and they will display a passion for helping all students develop an increasingly complex understanding of the surrounding natural and physical world through the exploration of student-centered, project-based science units. Preference will be given to candidates who have majored in a science discipline, have taken coursework in teacher preparation, and have worked with adolescent and early adolescent children. Knowledge of or interest in exploring and implementing ideas from the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is desirable.
Greenhills School is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities. We want a diverse mix of talented people who want to join us as student centered educators and role models who bring joy and good humor to our classrooms, fields, and offices, employ a broad array of effective instructional methods, work collaboratively with colleagues, seek and respond to student feedback, and commit to reflective practice and continual growth. We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming inclusive community.
The primary responsibilities include providing appropriate learning environments for students in grades 6 – 8, with the possibility of some teaching in 9-12. Our department’s education of students in the sciences reinforces the school’s broader mission of encouraging students to develop their full potential as curious, creative, and responsible citizens who respect all individuals and their differences, and whose meaningful and balanced lives will better the world.
Application Deadline: We will begin reviewing applications on April 9th --- and will continue until the position is filled.
