The McGillis School, an established, independent K-8 school in Salt Lake City, Utah has an opening for a full-time 7th grade Science teacher, beginning Fall 2018. Candidates must have a strong background and experience teaching middle or high school students in science, as well as a degree in science or related subject matter. A graduate degree in related subject area, teaching or educational studies, or equivalent professional experience is preferred.
In addition to excellent science teaching and academic background, this position requires energy, flexibility, and commitment to working with students inside and outside the classroom. The successful candidate will work very closely with other middle school teachers to develop and implement an integrative and experiential curriculum. Grade level teams of teachers will dedicate at least four hours a week to collaborative planning, research, and analysis/reflection of best practices of teaching and learning. The successful candidate will be expected to work with middle school students in various capacities outside of academic teaching. The McGillis School seeks teachers who are eager to be actively involved in a wide range of programs, including the roles of academic advisor, coach, and/or experiential/innovative education instructor, as well as teaching within our Explorations Block. Effective communication with students and families is also a priority.
Prior to the opening of school in late August, the candidate will be expected to commit time to familiarize themselves with faculty and staff members, as well as the larger school-wide community.
If you are interested in being considered for this position, please submit a résumé, cover letter (which includes a statement of educational philosophy) describing your qualifications and interest, one letter of recommendation, and two references to firstname.lastname@example.org or:
