Job Description

We at St. Anne's-Belfield School believe it is the quality and passion of our people that set us apart. We seek to hire the best teachers, administrators, and staff members to support our student body by offering a competitive benefits package and providing a wonderful working environment.

 

St. Anne’s-Belfield School seeks a full-time middle school English teacher and advisor. As an institution, St. Anne’s-Belfield encourages risk-taking and creativity, creates and sustains a culture of pleasure reading, and integrates empathy, awareness, and respect for differences in every classroom and course in explicit ways. A successful teacher leader in this position can foster in students an enthusiasm for the exploration of ideas and concepts in a student-centered classroom. In Grades 5-8, English and history are scheduled separately by discipline but are interdisciplinary and collaborative in their approach. The grade-level English teacher works closely with the grade-level history teacher to develop and implement a curriculum designed to engage students in questions of citizenship and inspire students to see themselves as agents of change in the world. Candidates should be confident, flexible, collaborative, and passionate about interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Full-time classroom teaching experience, strong organizational and classroom management skills, and the ability to joyfully teach middle school children are required. A master's degree in education, English, or a related humanities field is preferred. 

 

As an independent school, we value community involvement and expect that the selected candidate will serve as a coach, and/or engage in student-centered extracurricular programming beyond the classroom.
