AIM Academy is excited to announce the opening of an Upper School English/Humanities teaching position for the fall of 2018. AIM’s Upper School is an innovative and collaborative environment where teachers have smaller than usual caseloads so they can focus on the individual needs of students. Teaching faculty in the Upper School enjoy a good deal of autonomy in the material they teach as well as very well developed support structures to employ key research based practices for comprehension, writing, critical thinking, vocabulary, and engagement with various forms of text.
The Upper School English Language Arts & Humanities team is comprised of nine faculty who focus on Literature, Writing, History, Latin, and Intervention classes. This position will largely focus on Literature and Writing. The department is supported by a team of instructional leaders, speech language pathologists, and very knowledgeable administrators. An ideal candidate will have experience teaching literature and writing to students with language based learning differences like dyslexia and dysgraphia as well as working with students who may have processing or attention issues. The ideal candidate will also understand how to marry explicit instruction with a college preparatory scope and sequence. Those with Wilson or Orton-Gillingham certification or training are highly desirable. AIM’s Institute for Learning and Research will provide a myriad of opportunities for professional development prior to the opening of the school year.
