Upper School Computer & Mathematics Science Teacher
Buckingham Browne & Nichols
January 30, 2018
Full Time - Faculty
BB&N is seeking a full-time Upper School computer science and math teacher. Responsibilities include teaching 4 sections (which will be a combination of AP Computer Science, post-AP Computer Science, and likely one math course). The ideal candidate would also advise BB&N’s robotics club.
Our post-AP Computer Science course does not have set curriculum, which gives the teacher a lot of freedom to take students with strong programming experience in a variety of directions. In recent years, students in this project-based course have constructed a simulated computer system as they learned about the interactions of hardware, software, compilers, and operating systems. Other topics studied in this course have included advanced data structures and algorithms, parallel computing, machine learning, iOS app development, cryptography, and computer graphics. The topics have depended on the interests of the teacher and students in the class.
The ideal candidate will bring degree work in mathematics and/or computer science, high school teaching experience including various levels of college preparatory mathematics and computer science, and ample experience with the use of technology for mathematics instruction.
In addition, the candidate will demonstrate the following:
Enjoys working with high school aged students
Strong writing skills
Warmth, sense of humor, and tact
Commitment to working in and fostering an inclusive community
Ability to collaborate with colleagues
Ability to communicate effectively with students and parents
Understand and exhibit high standards of professional conduct
Additional Salary Information: Based on experience
