Job Description

CA seeks a full-time, dynamic, energetic, and creative science teacher leader for the 2018-19 school year. A full-time position consists of 2 sections of 8th grade physical science, 2 sections of 7th grade life science, an advisory, participation in the school’s Interim program, and other duties as assigned.

We seek an individual with at least five years of experience teaching middle school (grades 6 through 8) science courses with the demonstrated ability to teach physical science and biology.  STEM teaching experience is a plus.  The ideal candidate will:

  • Be versatile and have a demonstrated track record of success teaching middle school science, physical science and biology in particular.
  • Have demonstrated leadership in developing an innovative, vibrant, rigorous MS curriculum
  • Understand science and STEM — where it has come from and where it is going
  • Teach science with joy and infectious enthusiasm
  • View MS science as an opportunity for creativity and innovation
  • Be a problem-solver at heart and able to guide students through an inquiry-based, thought-provoking program balancing conceptual understanding with skill-based learning

  • Collaborate well with a team of teachers
  • View students as active learners and participants in their science experience
  • Understand the role technology, engineering and math play in developing student understanding

Coaching abilities are a plus.
The CA Middle School program provides a crucial bridge between our Lower and Upper School programs. Its foundation is a strong academic curriculum but is balanced by an extensive and challenging program in athletics, the arts, outdoor education and community service. A child’s Middle School experience is characterized by small classes, high standards, a faculty committed to the growth of every student, and an abiding belief that the most successful learners are the most active and involved learners.

 

Learning at CA is not confined to the classroom. Learning opportunities abound. The school’s experiential Interim program, student-generated club activities, leadership development programming and a broad-based community service program are among the hallmarks of every student’s Middle School experience.

 

CA offers an excellent compensation package, wide-ranging opportunities for professional development, and an environment notable for its dedicated teaching professionals and supportive administrators.

 

Applicants are also invited to visit the CA website (www.coloradoacademy.org) to learn more about the school and its program.
