Pingree School seeks an accomplished and enthusiastic world language instructor to teach four sections of Spanish. Language instruction at Pingree has as its underlying essence the belief that our curriculum should be equally focused on the development of proficiency and confidence in reading, writing, listening, and speaking in the target language.
The successful candidate will be fluent in Spanish and will have experience with and a passion for teaching in the target language at multiple levels in a secondary school. Pingree seeks candidates who value creativity, innovation, and the use of technology in the classroom. Additionally, interested candidates should be committed to working collaboratively in a dynamic and collegial department. We seek candidates with excellent interpersonal and organizational skills who are eager to explore collaborative and interdisciplinary teaching and professional development opportunities. Finally, we seek candidates who believe in integrating cultural learning along with language learning, which may include designing and teaching thematic, trimester-long seminars and embedding experiential learning and projects into the curriculum. Experience teaching advanced-level courses, including AP Spanish is preferable, and proficiency in French or Mandarin Chinese would be an added strength.
In addition to teaching Spanish, the position will include coaching and/or supervising two seasons of a sport or equivalent activity, as well as serving as an advisor. Consequently, candidates must exhibit both a passion for their subject matter, as well as a commitment to working with adolescents both inside and outside of the classroom.
