Holy Child School at Rosemont is a Catholic, co-educational, independent school (Nursery-8th grade) located near the campuses of Villanova University and Rosemont College in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. We strive to Nurture Excellence in a Joyful Catholic Community and seek applicants to help us live that Vision Statement as our school liturgist and middle school religion teacher.
This is a combined (and full-time) position; approximately one-third of the time involves planning and executing the school's Masses and prayer services, and two-thirds involves teaching religion to grades 5, 7 and 8, and serving as an advisor.
In addition to the annual school-wide Masses we celebrate (opening school Mass and Holy Days, primarily), each grade (1st - 8th) plans and executes a prayer service or mass, to which parents are invited. The prayer services take many forms, and they are purposeful ways in which we attempt to prepare our children for the church of the 21st century in the spirit of Gaudium et Spes.
We seek to hire a dynamic educator who sees this position as a ministry, and who will engage our community - children, families and faculty/staff - in its spiritual growth and celebration, and who will be an effective classroom teacher as well.
The ideal candidate will:
- Understand and appreciate our mission and philosophy as a Holy Child School
- Be energetic and enthusiastic about teaching and working with children
- Be well-versed in current thinking and best practices of liturgical development
- Have at least 3-5 years experience teaching in a school
- Value collegiality and be a team player
- Communicate consistently and well with parents
- Understand and use technology as a learning and communication tool
A bachelor's degree is required, and the successful candidate must be a practicing Roman Catholic.
Interested candidates should forward résumés and a cover letter to Tom Lengel (email@example.com) and Deb Borden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will begin reviewing files immediately and hope to have completed this search by early June.
