Trinity School, a co-educational, K-12 institution located on the Upper West of Manhattan, seeks a Lower School Spanish teacher for a two-month maternity leave beginning in September 2017.
The successful candidate will be a dedicated, skilled world language teacher with demonstrated expertise teaching Spanish to students in elementary school. The department seeks an approachable colleague who possesses strong communication skills, the ability to work with a team, skills to engage and inspire students in the pursuit of learning a language in a Spanish only classroom, and a sense of humor.
Trinity’s Modern Languages Department offers instruction in Spanish, French, and Mandarin. Mandatory Spanish instruction begins in Kindergarten; in fifth grade, students can choose to continue with Spanish or start French. In ninth grade, students can continue with the language studied in Middle School, or they can begin a new world language, including Mandarin. Separate from the Modern Languages Department, the school’s Classics Department offers instruction in Latin and Greek, including mandatory Latin in grades 6-8.
An Equal Opportunity Employer, Trinity School seeks candidates who will add to the diversity of our school community.
