St. Mark’s Episcopal School is conducting a search for a full-time band teacher for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, effective immediately.
St. Mark’s, established in 1979, is a coeducational parish day school, now serving 460 students from age two through Grade 8 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The foundation of St. Mark’s program is to provide students with balanced exposure to academics, arts, athletics, and spiritual life. At all levels, our students will be, as our mission states, academically enriched in a nurturing Christian environment.
St. Mark’s seeks to ensure all children learn the value of their innate talents. Though enrichment in technology, art, band, vocal, and drama, students learn to express their creativity. By experiencing music theory and history from various composition, students gain a new understanding of school, culture, and the world. Studying the fine arts cultivates values of respect, cooperation, dedication, effort, fellowship, and leadership.
Ideal candidates are those who seek to partner with parents, collaborate with team members, demonstrate a commitment to professional growth, motivate students academically, and support students in developing their moral character.
The band teacher will:
Create a welcoming, creative space for children of all levels of playing abilities.
Teach courses in grades 3-8 which range from instruction on recorders, to beginning band, through middle school symphonic band.
Organize and conduct a middle school jazz band before school.
Prepare students for solo and ensemble competitions through the Florida Bandmasters Association.
Provide extra help for students after school.
Work collaboratively with other teachers.
Direct performances in Eucharist and at multiple concerts throughout the year.

A bachelor’s degree in music education or within another field with a combination of music background.
Previous teaching experience.
Familiarity with independent school culture.
