CA seeks a dynamic, energetic, and creative mathematics teacher to join a collegial department as a full-time member effective August 2020. A full-time position consists of four sections of mathematics and an advisory.
The Upper School program combines a strong college preparatory academic curriculum with extensive and challenging programs in athletics, community service, and fine arts. Students graduating from the Upper School apply to and are accepted at selective colleges throughout the United States. Small classes, high standards, a faculty committed to the mathematical growth of every student, and an abiding belief that the most successful learners are the most active and involved learners, make the Upper School years the capstone of a student's pre-collegiate education. Faculty engage with students outside the traditional classroom during the school’s experiential Interim program, by supporting student-led clubs, co-leading a 9th grade Intensive Study, and supporting an advisory through the four years of Upper School. Learning opportunities for students and faculty abound, shared with friends and committed leaders.
A successful candidate will not only be mathematically prepared to teach a variety of courses, and also one who strives to be innovative in his/her teaching methods and is willing to explore current "best practices" in CA's increasingly investigation-based classrooms. Demonstrated ability to collaborate with colleagues and design curriculum and questions that engage and challenge students at different levels. We seek those candidates having demonstrated experience using various technology platforms as a regular component of classroom practice.
