Greens Farms Academy seeks a Middle School World Languages Teacher to begin in August 2018. The position will involve teaching four or five sections of students in Spanish and French, although we are open to candidates who teach only Spanish. The ideal candidate will have at least two years of teaching experience, a strong background in the two languages, a passion for working with middle school students, and a commitment to fostering an inclusive community. Candidates should also be prepared to participate in the many facets of independent school life, including leading an advisory group, leading clubs and activities, chaperoning trips, and coaching. The new teacher will join a collegial Middle School faculty and a World Languages Department committed to target language-immersion, communicative teaching, thematic units, project-based learning, and technological integration.
