The St. Paul’s Schools is pleased to announce an opening for a full-time Middle School History Teacher at St. Paul’s School for Girls.
The St. Paul’s Schools is a family of independent schools located in Brooklandville, Maryland. With more than 1,400 students from ages 6 months to grade 12, St. Paul’s Pre and Lower School (coed), St. Paul’s School for Girls, and St. Paul’s School for Boys share a 120-acre campus, an Episcopal affiliation, and a focus on developing confident, well balanced students who will use their education and ethics to improve the world. In July 2018, the schools unified under the umbrella of The St. Paul's Schools, with a single board of trustees and one president, but each school retains its individual traditions and its gender-specific programs. A coordinated structure allows The St. Paul’s Schools to preserve the small-school feel within each school while sharing resources and certain programs to maximize opportunities for students. With St. Paul’s unique model, boys and girls are taught together and separately at just the right times in their development.
Specifically, St. Paul's School for Girls has over 430 girls in grades 5-12. St. Paul’s School for Girls educates hearts and minds in an inclusive community that is grounded in the Episcopal values of respect, integrity, and spiritual growth. We empower voice, nurture intellectual curiosity and creativity, and inspire confident leaders who serve in the world.

The successful candidate will be a creative teacher who engages and inspires students and who thrives in a collaborative atmosphere. We seek an individual who is committed to developing a multicultural curriculum and who purposefully integrates technology as it facilitates learning. In addition to contributing to the conversations and goals of the history department, candidates should be eager to contribute to SPSG’s school-wide goals: providing rigorous, relevant, and responsive, student-centered instruction that meets the needs of a range of learners. Candidates with a master’s degree will be given preference.
In addition to teaching, full-time faculty members serve as student advisors, club mentors, and contribute in other significant ways to the work of the community.? We are especially interested in candidates with coaching experience and/or those who can demonstrate initiative and serve as coaches in a variety of significant ways outside of the classroom.? Other supervisory responsibilities and duties are shared among faculty members.?
The St. Paul’s Schools are committed to creating a supportive learning environment where all individuals are valued for their unique contributions and are able to achieve their highest potential. We strongly believe that a diverse and inclusive environment is the best learning environment for our students and prepares them to live, work, and thrive in an increasingly global and multicultural community. We reject all prejudice, particularly those based on race, national and ethnic origin, religion, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, and physical characteristics.
