Founded in 1905, McCallie is an all boys college preparatory school, serving both boarding and day students and their families. McCallie seeks to inspire, educate, and transform boys into men who:
embody the ideals of Honor, Truth, and Duty;
embrace intellectual rigor, critical thinking, and lifelong learning;
devote themselves in service to noble causes;
pursue spiritual meaning; and
make a positive difference in the world.
McCallie seeks a dynamic, innovative, student-centered instructor of chemistry at the introductory, honors, and AP levels. An ability also to instruct either senior level physics or any level of biology would be advantageous, but not required.
McCallie has just opened its new $15 million, 40,000 square foot science building with state of the art technology, science labs, and research spaces, including a tissue culture lab, innovation maker-space, and engineering lab. The teacher will join a dozen other science faculty and instruct four sections, at least two of which will be AP Chemistry. The other two will vary depending on the instructor’s background. Each section will have a lab component associated with it. The teacher will also be involved in the school's extensive afternoon activity program supporting science research, advising one of the many extracurricular activities or coaching at the junior varsity or varsity level of a sport. There may be other duties as assigned.
The successful candidate will demonstrate:
passion for and experience in helping students uncover real-world connection to the science;
willingness to work cooperatively within a strong department, on grade level teams, and along vertical course sequences;
ability to push student discovery and experiential learning within the structure of an AP framework;
a calling to the education and formation of young men consistent with the school’s vision and a commitment to advancing the school’s mission.
Applicants should possess:
experience teaching chemistry at the AP level with a strong track record of AP scores;
Master’s degree in chemistry or secondary school science education.
Additional teaching elements desired, but not required include:
experience teaching physics or biology;
experience in graduate, post-graduate, or medical research.
