Friends School Haverford seeks a long-term substitute middle school English teacher to work full time from January 2 to March 22. Middle school teaching experience is preferred.
Responsibilities include teaching English to students in grades 5 through 8; periodic lunch, recess, bus, and advisory duties; and responsibility for an 8th grade workshop period.
We are seeking a teacher who is comfortable with differentiated instruction in classes that are combined across grade levels. For example, the grade 5/6 class will read one novel but interact with it in different ways, while grade 7/8 will read one of three books at varied reading levels.
A teacher who is upbeat, flexible, dynamic, creative, and thoughtful would be ideal. Working collegially with faculty peers to engage students while helping to maintain a positive and kind student culture is important.
If this describes you and a job opportunity in which you are interested, please forward a cover letter, several references, and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
