The Bishop’s School seeks a full-time history teacher (Grades 9-12) beginning August 2018. While the ideal candidate will have the ability to teach a range of courses based on departmental needs, a background in world and/or regional history with the ability to teach advanced electives is preferred. The department actively considers the scope and sequence of the School’s social studies curriculum and seeks candidates excited about student-centered learning, interdisciplinary curriculum, and a desire to enhance existing programs and develop additional courses in support of the school’s global education initiatives. In addition to teaching mathematics, faculty responsibilities include serving as an advisor to students.
A bachelor’s degree (B.A.) in history or related field is required; a minimum of 3 years teaching experience is expected, preferably in an independent school. Interest in supporting current co-curricular programs, specifically the school’s competitive Mock Trial program, is also highly desirable.
