This position is for a high school Advanced Physics and AP Physics teacher. The candidate must embrace helping student to develop inquiry skills and providing experiences with the practices of science. Knowledge of the Next Generation Science Standards or at least an interest to learn about them and to use them in their teaching is preferred. Episcopal High School is particularly interested in considering applications from faculty who have experience or expressed interest in studio-design thinking, project-based instruction, and interdisciplinary “learning by doing” methods that bridge traditional fields in creative, student-centered ways. A candidate interested in participating in our computer science and robotics program would be possible.
The position is full-time. A bachelor's degree is required. At least three years of teaching experience with depth of science understanding is preferred. The Episcopal faculty member serves as a representative of the school at all times, upholding its mission both personally and professionally. The candidate must be a self-motivated individual with good communication skills who works well with others and has an eagerness to help each student achieve his or her full potential. An unwavering professional demeanor is expected, and the skill to develop strong relationships is a must. Being a person that self-identifies (and that others describe) as a “happy” person, an emotionally intelligent person, a person with natural “situational awareness,” a person who feels comfortable in a school striving toward “Good to Great” management principles, a “forward-looking” person, and a person who “plays well with others,” are all characteristics of the successful candidate.
Episcopal will offer a competitive salary and good benefits for this position.

Please include a cover letter, resume, copy of transcripts, references, and explanation of your interest in the position or mail to Sarah Pulliam, Science Department Chair, Episcopal High School- 3200 Woodland Ridge Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70816.
