Quest Forward Academy (formerly NGL Academy) is a new kind of high school located in downtown Santa Rosa, California. Taking a student-centric, project-based approach to learning, we seek to instill in our students the mindset, habits, and skill sets of value creators, well prepared for success in future learning, in career, and in life itself.
We are seeking teachers who see themselves as mentors, and who wish to serve as joyful facilitators of student-driven inquiry. If you love to lecture or to hand out worksheets; if you see student questions as irritations rather than opportunities; if you want tomorrow to look like today and wish today looked more like yesterday -- this job is not for you! But if you are looking for an opportunity to work in an exciting, innovative learning environment characterized by small class sizes, on-going individualized dialogue with your students as they develop academic and life skills as well as self-knowledge, please send a resume and a cover letter describing your qualifications and interest in the position.
Preferences: teaching and curriculum development experience in grades 9-12; teaching and curriculum-development experience with project- and problem-based learning; facility and comfort with technology, willingness to experiment and try no methods and approaches. Candidates with experience or training in more than one discipline, and candidates with college and academic counseling experience, are highly desirable. If you would like more information about the Academy and its approach, please visit http://ngl.academy . We are interested in both seasoned teaching professionals looking for something new and early career individuals looking to join something new and exciting at its inception.
Additional Salary Information: Commensurate with experience
