DESCRIPTION: While there is not currently a position available, St. Paul’s School recognizes the need to attract the most qualified candidates as we anticipate possible future needs. With this in mind, the following position description for a teacher of French is provided. Those interested are encouraged to apply. All applicants will be notified if this position does become available later in the academic year.
The Language Department requires students to not only master the mechanics of another language but also to immerse themselves in the arts, traditions, and customs of those who speak it. Under the direction of the faculty – and aided by the multimedia Language Center – students come to understand different ways of thinking and living. The result is a consciousness that is truly global. Extensive offerings are provided in five modern languages – Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish – and in Latin and Greek, taught for beginners through a multitude of courses for advanced students.
RESPONSIBILITIES: The primary responsibility will be to teach classes of introductory and more advanced levels of French at the secondary level. The ideal candidate will thrive in a collaborative environment working with other French teachers, with the faculty of the languages department, and with the broader faculty in advancing the mission of the School and the commitment to teaching and learning in a holistic educational environment. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience teaching French language and culture and have an understanding of boarding school life.
