Location: Severna Park, Maryland
Type: Full Time
Job Title: Middle School History Teacher
Supervisor: Head of Middle School
Start Date: August 2023
General Summary: Severn School is searching for a full-time Middle School History teacher to begin in August of 2023.
Essential Functions: Middle School teaching and learning begins with relationships and appreciation of young adolescents to create a learning environment that promotes both achievement and inclusivity. The Severn faculty is a community of learners committed to ongoing professional development, reflection, collaboration, and collegiality, and a premium is placed on middle school education best practices, classroom cultures of thinking, and assessment for learning.
The ideal candidate has a natural, genuine joy of working with young adolescents, has a strong educational background with a degree in a related field, and will possess an eagerness and commitment to the life of the school beyond the classroom. Athletic coaching experience and previous middle school teaching experience are preferred but not required.
Severn believes that all aspects of a student’s experience—leadership opportunities, an intentional middle-school transition program, service, the advisory program, athletics, and the arts—are necessary components of a Severn education. Faculty participation in these pursuits beyond the classroom reflects the collective commitment to living the school’s deep-rooted mission, which promises that students are known and valued. Severn’s faculty is a foundational component of our commitment to fostering a culture of belonging, and so candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
How to Apply: Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and a list of at least three current references to Dan Keller, Middle School Head, firstname.lastname@example.org
