Carondelet High School is seeking Science teachers who want to make a positive impact on the lives of students, especially young women, who in many STEM fields are underrepresented. The school has a “flipped” science sequence that moves from Physics to Chemistry to Biology and is in the midst of creating true STEM interdisciplinary, cross-curricular programming in advance of building a new on-campus STEM Innovation center.
