The Williston Northampton School, an independent co-educational boarding and day school in Easthampton, Massachusetts, provides a culturally diverse educational community of approximately 540 students in grades 7-12. We are seeking to hire a full time Physics teacher for the 2018-19 school year. The ideal candidate should possess curiosity and passion in exploring the significance of science in life and learning, with the ability to engage and intellectually excite students in that pursuit. The responsibilities will likely include three or four sections of Physics. Strong candidates will have at least a few years of teaching experience, ideally in independent schools. We also value candidates who have interest and experience in teaching Physics at all abilities and grade levels. An advanced degree is preferred but not required. This position includes involvement with our afternoon program for two or three seasons, as well as student advising and likely residential responsibilities. Driving a school mini-bus is also an expectation of this position. Candidates must possess a valid driver’s license; must have the ability to work in a school environment by successful completion of all legally required and school required background checks including the state mandated CORI, Criminal Offender Record Information, SORI, Sex Offender Record Information and Fingerprint based criminal background check.
It is important that candidates possess the flexibility, energy, commitment to teamwork and appreciation for adolescents that life in an independent school boarding community requires. Please direct all inquiries, including a cover letter, current resume, and contact information for three references, to Peter Valine, Dean of Faculty at firstname.lastname@example.org
