Sage Ridge School, Reno’s only non-sectarian independent school, seeks a Physics teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. Candidates must be prepared to teach Physical Science, Conceptual Physics, AP Physics I, and AP Physics C, and one semester elective. A full time teaching position also includes other duties in the community, such as serving as an advisor to approximately 8-10 students, supervising an outdoor education trip, supervising a student-run club, or other duties assigned by the Assistant Upper School Director or Head of School.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of three years high school physics teaching experience. An advanced degree is desirable but not a requirement.
Sage Ridge School’s teachers are caring and kind and lead dynamic classes which challenge our students to think critically and to collaborate. Sage Ridge teachers embrace our mission and value pillars (Community, Courage, Respect, Scholarship, and Integrity) and work to bring the mission and pillars into their teaching and curriculum.
Sage Ridge School is nestled in the foothills of the eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range on the south side of Reno, NV. Though the school is quite young (established in 1998), it has quickly made its way on to national rankings of independent schools for its challenging curriculum and the success of our students.
