Crane Country Day School is looking to hire a Math Specialist. The school seeks a person with both a love and an expertise in the field of mathematics. This is an exciting new role that we are initiating for the 2019 – 2020 school year. We are looking for someone who happily identifies as a “math nerd” and is completely smitten by the beauty of mathematics. In addition to having a wide range of math abilities and training, an ideal candidate would also be well versed in the sides of mathematics we rarely get to see – the inspiration, its history, profound ideas, and startling revelations.
This individual will have a somewhat unconventional teaching load: an occasional formal class, but predominantly working with small groups of students. In part this is being designed for our most advanced students—to take these high achieving kids and feed and sustain their keen interest in math. In addition, this specialist would work with students who need extra support, including testing and understanding specific mathematical weaknesses, to ultimately to build a more robust mathematical foundation.
Contract to begin August 1, 2019. First day of school is September 3, 2019. This person would work with students of varying ages, but mostly with students in 5th grade up to 8th grade.
Successful candidates will possess the following attributes:
High energy level
Undergrad or graduate degree in the field of mathematics
Ability to successfully develop and maintain positive relationships with students, colleagues, and families
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Employee benefits currently include:
An average of 16 weeks paid breaks and holidays per year
Medical, Dental, Vision, Group Life and Disability Insurance: zero cost employee coverage
Flexible Spending Account for medical expenses and dependent care
Cafeteria Plan with annual employer contribution of $1,500
Salary is competitive and is commensurate with education, experience, and skills. Crane Country Day School is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
