At Harding Academy, we believe that children in primary and middle school should be both nurtured and challenged. We carefully orchestrate this critical balance to align with the students’ needs and capabilities at each grade level. The outcome is more than preparation for rigorous high school. It is children with a deeper understanding of material, the self-assuredness to conquer any challenge, and the ability to think critically and independently for a lifetime.
Harding Academy seeks an outstanding educational leader to serve as Director of Teaching and Learning. The Director is responsible for continuity, alignment and innovation of the PreK-8 program and the implementation of strategic program initiatives as they relate to the program at the school. In addition, the Director will help hire, mentor and retain faculty and support a culture of teaching excellence focused on successful, mission-focused student outcomes. The Director reports to the Head of School, serves as a key member of the school’s leadership team and works closely with faculty, division directors, school and curriculum committee chairs and senior leadership. The ideal candidate will have strong teaching and curriculum experience, a deep knowledge of child development and exceptional communication skills. The candidate will whole-heartedly embrace a whole child approach to learning, making the student needs the center of his/her decision making. Furthermore, they will be an inspiration to and collaborator with a high performing faculty.
