Episcopal High School seeks a dynamic leader for the position of Music Teacher and Program Coordinator, who will serve as the director of band, orchestra, and instrumental ensembles and manage all areas of curriculum instruction for these groups, as well as leading campus-wide initiatives that engage students with music instruction and performance.
The coordinator will identify growth opportunities within existing music programs (i.e., guitar class, piano class, instrumental ensemble, and lessons) and recommend plans to increase opportunities by introducing new programs (i.e., percussion ensemble, music technology, and contemporary ensembles in jazz, rock, and chapel music). Additionally, the coordinator will work with program leaders from area middle schools to develop and implement initiatives that create robust yields in enrollment upon acceptance to EHS.
For all teaching positions, EHS seeks candidates with a strong educational background, a demonstrated commitment to working with young people and collaborating with colleagues, a desire for ongoing professional growth, and a willingness to participate in other areas of school life. The successful candidate will support the school’s mission in providing opportunities for each student to reach his or her maximum spiritual, intellectual, social, and ethical potential. EHS’s teaching philosophy emphasizes understanding and responding to the individual needs and capabilities of each student. As a laptop school, EHS also expects teachers to support its laptop program and be committed to using technology effectively and creatively to enhance student learning and facilitate course administration.
