The Barstow School is seeking candidates for Middle and Upper School Science Teacher. The Barstow School is a co-educational school where students in preschool through twelfth grade develop in a challenging educational community. As originally stated by Mary Louise Barstow, the objective of the school remains “to promote sound scholarship and to give symmetrical development to mind, body and character.” The goals of The Barstow School are to: graduate well-rounded and self-confident individuals; offer a rigorous and challenging college preparatory curriculum; provide opportunities to develop leadership and enhance skills for lifelong learning; develop highly skilled, ethical users of technology; maintain a community that is diverse, accepting and inclusive; promote service work to the community by students and adults; foster open communication among all constituents in the Barstow community; encourage the development of faculty through ongoing learning opportunities; act as good stewards of the institution’s physical, financial and human resources.
For the 2018-2019 school year, we are seeking candidates to teach science at both the Middle and Upper School levels, including courses in physical and earth/space science and possibly introductory biology. The ideal candidate will also serve as a student advisor and will be actively involved in the life of the school. A bachelor’s degree in science or a related field is required, and prior teaching experience in grades 6-12 is preferred.
The Barstow School is an equal opportunity employer.
