Olney Friends School is seeking a full-time chemistry teacher. Classroom responsibilities would include teaching chemistry courses, and other, more flexible coursework, according to interest and not necessarily limited to chemistry. All Olney faculty members act as student advisors; may participate in dorm or evening roles; sponsor extracurricular activities, events, and/or sports; and immerse themselves in the daily life of the community.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, self-starter. The position requires at least a Bachelor’s degree, either in chemistry, or in a field that closely relates to chemistry, and teaching experience. A Master’s degree is preferable but less important than an interest in authentic, real-world learning and a commitment to encouraging critical thinking skills, cooperation, communication, and creativity.
Teachers who work at Olney enjoy great students, unusually small classes, and the chance to develop their teaching within a supportive and collaborative environment. We are a student-centered school.
All employees at Olney Friends School must pass a background check and complete an application form as conditions of employment. Additionally, all faculty members must become certified in first aid and CPR and become mandatory abuser reporters. If eligible, all faculty are asked to become certified to drive school vehicles with students.
This job will likely include some dorm sponsor duties and overnight dorm stays.
Interested individuals should email Vicki Lowry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a cover letter, resume, and contact information for two or three professional references.
