Friends School faculty members teach by example, blending intellectual exploration, enthusiasm, and joy. Every day, they challenge and encourage students to think deeply, to question, and to seek truth, while instilling in each of them a strong sense of social responsibility, a willingness to embrace challenges, and an awareness of their potential as individuals.

A record of successful collaboration with colleagues
A commitment to lifelong learning, and ongoing professional development
The infusion of technology to enhance student learning
The teaching of research and information literacy skills
The use of a diversity of assessment techniques that provoke students' critical thinking
Teaching and learning experiences that enhance students' communication skills
Experience with and openness to interdisciplinary teaching
A desire to understand diverse attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and practices and incorporate a global perspective into teaching and learning
