Multi-Discipline Teaching Position
Due to increased admissions in our growing and vibrant school, Pope John Paul II High School is seeking potential job candidates that can teach across several core disciplines. We are a dynamic Catholic school committed to our mission of helping students grow in mind, body, and spirit. We seek candidates who understand the mission of the school—to serve a diverse student body while serving as role models who exhibit integrity, faith, and a commitment to academic excellence with a bi-focal view on helping students grow both in the subjects they teach and as people of faith. Although our student body growth opens up new teaching positions at the school, our ideal candidates will exhibit the Renaissance ideals of our namesake—providing the ability to teach across departments to model for students the ways in which all academic disciplines point toward the broader goal of seeking faith through intellect. Just as John Paul the Great was a scholar and athlete, our ideal candidates can contribute to the formation of our students both inside the bounds of the classroom, inspire students in multiple disciplines, and contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school. In modeling our Renaissance goals for our students, our ideal candidates will be able to coach a sport(s) while contributing to our expectation of excellence in the classroom. Our particular needs are diverse, so all applicants should apply, but our most pressing needs are finding teachers who can teach Spanish, English, History, Theology, Math, or Science. Candidates should consult our website to see our current course offerings and suggest courses that they feel capable of teaching.
Candidates should send the following to our academic deans, Karen Phillips (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Andrew Griffith (email@example.com):
- A cover letter that explains why the candidate wants to teach at JPII. Additionally, the cover letter should outline qualifications to teach across multiple departments—including which courses each candidate feels prepared to teach in our rigorous and diverse curricula. Finally, the cover letter should address how the candidate could contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school.
- Resume/curriculum vitae that highlights experiences that would allow the candidate to fulfill our Renaissance vision.
- A statement of teaching philosophy outlining the applicant’s approach to teaching each subject in which they teach. We are looking for pedagogical fits within the broader philosophical approach across each department.
Qualified candidates will first be granted a phone interview before proceeding to a teaching demonstration and interviews with administrators and appropriate departmental members.
