Anticipating some moderate expansion in the 2019-20 academic year, Vermont Commons School is accepting applications for teaching positions in the core disciplines: English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, and World Language (Spanish and Chinese). While our faculty generally teach both middle and high school classes, we are particularly in search of middle school specialists--educators who love the early adolescent years and know how to work with this developmental stage positively and enthusiastically.
Vermont Commons School is an independent, day, middle and high school located in suburban Burlington, Vermont. With a strong progressive and experiential education heritage, the school's niche is serving college-bound students and families for whom learning, independence and creativity of thought, and collaboration for the common good are paramount.
Inspired and inspiring educators, especially from across diverse backgrounds and identities, are encouraged to apply.
A bachelors degree is required. A masters (or higher) or applicable professional work is preferred. Three or more years of teaching in independent schools is preferred, but candidates whose exceptional experiences qualify them in other ways should apply.
