Pingree School seeks a parental leave cover in mathematics for the first trimester of the 2018-2019 academic year (end of August - Thanksgiving). In addition to teaching three sections of mathematics, responsibilities will include submitting student grades and narrative comments at the midpoint and end of the trimester, attending Parent-Student-Teacher conferences at the end of the trimester, contributing to student review meetings, and participating in math department meetings.
Pingree has an integrated program for the first three levels of mathematics. Teachers stress a balanced approach to problem solving where students are encouraged to explore topics algebraically, geometrically, numerically, and verbally. The math department emphasizes collaborative learning in the classroom that simultaneously holds students to high individual expectations.
