Holland Hall seeks a passionate, committed educator who is energized by work with students to serve as a full-time Upper School English teacher. Upper School students are required to complete four years of English at Holland Hall: the freshman year focuses on close reading; the sophomore year incorporates various literary theories; the junior year, American Studies, requires students to synthesize disparate sources in their thinking; the senior year offers students electives stemming from each English instructor's intellectual passions. The English department prides itself on its long tradition of developing sophisticated critical thinkers who are able to convey their ideas both in written and spoken form. This teaching position is responsible for three sections of freshman English, and two semester-long English electives (one in the fall, one in the spring). The average upper school faculty position is responsible for 60 students, and the candidate should have a history of evaluating student progress and offering individualized help to meet student needs. The position also entails serving as an advisor to a small group of upper school students while keeping track of each advisee’s progress through ongoing communication with families.
Interested candidates will enjoy working with a professional and collaborative upper school division that strives to provide each child with an opportunity to explore and grow his or her whole self. Candidates must have a strong background in the subject being taught, be willing to work in a team environment, have a deep respect for adolescents and be positive and student-centered.
Interested candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree in English or related experience and education. Previous teaching experience is also desired. A Master’s degree and independent school experience are preferred but not required. Special consideration will be given to exemplary candidates who can also support a significant extracurricular activity or coach a sport.
