Marlborough School, an independent, college preparatory school in Los Angeles for 530 young women in grades 7-12, seeks a dynamic Spanish instructor to join the faculty for the 2017−2018 School year.
Marlborough’s Mission defines the School as “an independent, urban day school serving a diverse group of young women.” We believe a diverse faculty is essential to the Mission of the School, for the following reasons:
- We instill confidence and cultivate leadership potential within each student and serve as role models in inspiring them to pursue their personal best.
- We arm each graduate with the skills and motivation to create meaningful connections with people throughout the nation and across the world.
- We serve as role models for our students with teaching responsibilities that extend beyond the classroom and the curriculum.
It is our responsibility to employ a diverse group of educators who exemplify excellence in teaching and leadership, and teach by example as well as by pedagogy.
The goals of the Foreign Languages Department which includes French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and Latin, are to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and to include appropriate cultural, historical, and literary materials at all levels. The goal of the Department is to enable students to communicate with a native speaker at increasingly higher levels of proficiency and to instill a sympathetic appreciation of the cultures of nations which use Chinese, French, or Spanish as their native or principal language. In the Latin courses, speaking and listening are less emphasized, and special attention is given to the structure of the language, cultural, historical, and literary aspects of Latin, and its linguistic relationship to English, all of which have exerted considerable influence on our own historical development.
