Pingree School seeks a well-qualified full-time math teacher for the 2018-19 academic year. We seek educators who will build upon Pingree’s established integrated curriculum and collaborative approach to teaching mathematics. In addition, though not required, we seek candidates who have the additional qualifications to teach physics or chemistry. The successful candidate will have a deep knowledge of and passion for mathematics, a proven record of excellence in teaching, a broad understanding of the way quantitative reasoning informs and augments critical reasoning, and an appreciation for problem-based, student centered pedagogy.
The selected candidate should expect to teach four sections of mathematics, across an integrated curriculum that includes algebra, geometry, basic probability and statistics, and discrete topics. The sections could also include pre-calculus, or calculus--but not at an AP level. A successful applicant will enjoy the process of creating and sharing original course materials and have an interest in integrating technology and authentic problem solving into the classroom. Furthermore, they will be eager to participate in a “course team” that collaborates regularly to ensure as common an experience as possible for students within each course.
We seek candidates who are committed to and enjoy working with adolescents in all areas of school life. They also should be open to exploring collaborative, experiential and interdisciplinary teaching opportunities, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, and demonstrate a commitment to equity, inclusion, and a willingness to explore and share the ways in which diverse voices have contributed significantly to the development of modern mathematics. In addition to classroom teaching, Pingree teachers are asked to coach and/or supervise two seasons of a sport or equivalent activity, as well as serve as an advisor.
