Lawrence Academy has an opening for a part-time French teacher starting in August 2018. Candidates must have a strong background in French and independent high school experience is a plus. The ideal candidate will have the ability to also teach Spanish, be highly motivated, flexible, and resourceful. We anticipate the candidate will teach 2-3 sections.
Lawrence Academy’s language department puts students at the center of the classroom experience. Engagement, energy, communication, and innovation are paramount to the curriculum. Candidates should be comfortable using technology in the classroom, and teaching both language and culture.
Lawrence Academy is seeking candidates with a commitment to cultural competence which enables individuals to work and communicate across social and cultural differences. Candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
To apply for this position please email a single PDF with resume, cover letter, and list of references to Colin Igoe, Dean of Faculty, at email@example.com. The subject line should read “French Teacher.” No phone calls please.
