St. John’s Prep seeks an English teacher for grades 9 through 12. The English Department offers a program that “engages students in the challenge to acquire the skills necessary for successful communication: reading, thinking, analyzing and writing. Through literature, writing assignments and class discussions, we seek to introduce students to the issues and ideas that will help them to explore their own identity and the nature of the world around them” (St. John’s Prep website). A complete listing of English courses and their descriptions can be found at www.stjohnsprep.org/english.
English teachers at St. John’s Preparatory School teach four (4) classes and are required to complete a “duty” period during each semester. Prospective candidates should have the competency and passion to engage every student in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. Candidates should also have a desire to become an active and collegial member of an adult community of learners.
All members of the faculty are expected to give witness to the mission of St. John’s, as well as to our identity as an inclusive, Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School. In addition to classroom teaching responsibilities, St. John’s encourages all members of the faculty to be involved in the life of the school beyond the classroom. The school offers a wide range of co-curricular, intramural and interscholastic programs.
