Pace Academy is an independent college preparatory school in Atlanta, Ga., with an enrollment of 1115 students in Pre-First through 12th grades. Pace has an opening for a Physics teacher for the 2018-19 academic year.
As a science department at Pace, we are committed to preparing our students to face the growing challenges of a 21st-century, global world. There are big problems that need solving, and our students need to master the tools and processes to bring their ideas and solutions to life. Our "Physics First" curriculum immediately immerses 9th-graders in real-world science. Through numerous labs and four in-depth, month-long projects, they see repeatedly how class concepts connect to everyday life. At the same time, physics lays the theoretical foundation for a deeper understanding of chemistry in 10th-grade and biology in 11th-grade. We are looking for a physics teacher who can excel both as an instructor and as a mentor in guiding our students to learn the skills that will be indispensable for this next generation of innovative problem solvers.
Excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, employer provided life insurance, and a generous 403(b) employer match.
Application materials should include a cover letter and CV or resume, statement of teaching philosophy, references and any additional supporting documents.
The ideal candidate will have a bachelor's degree or higher in Physics, Engineering, or similar major.
Experience or training with project-based learning strongly preferred.
Experience that includes setting up and supervising students in a secondary school physics laboratory strongly preferred.
Private school experience preferred.
Strong sense of humor, flexibility, and a strong desire to work with teens is required.
Attendance at evening and weekend functions is occasionally required.
A willingness to coach is desired.
