Greenwich Academy seeks an outstanding science teacher for its Middle School. The new teacher will teach primarily in the seventh grade, with the possibility of teaching science or math (if appropriate) at another level as well. Seventh grade science at GA is focused on physical and earth sciences, with an emphasis on hands-on, discovery-based learning. The primary goal of the science department is to inspire in its students a love of learning and a curiosity about the world. At every level, science classes at GA encourage genuine exploration both in and outside of a laboratory environment. Candidates interested in partnering with the school’s nationally recognized engineering and design lab and/or working with a robotics team are of particular interest.
Successful candidates will be excited to work in a rigorous academic environment and will be eager to immerse themselves in the school community. They will be interested in, and skilled at, serving as advisors to Middle School students. A commitment to using a variety of teaching strategies is expected. Candidates should be enthusiastic learners themselves and should be eager to teach and learn in an environment dedicated to thoughtful, ongoing diversity work.
