Position Title: Middle School Math Teacher
Department: Middle School
FTE: 1.0 (Exempt)
Reports to: Middle School Head
This position teaches middle school math. A middle school math teacher is typically responsible for teaching three classes and a math study hall/math lab, as well as co-advising a group of students. The teaching load for math classes could be in one grade level or across grade levels depending on the needs of the school. We seek applicants who are interested in a dynamic relationship with students as well as their colleagues based in positivity and collegiality. In addition to daily formal teaching responsibilities, teachers are expected to participate in, and lead, activities that include but are not limited to extra-curricular, experiential, and community engagement across grade levels. All faculty participate in overnight retreats and trips with students throughout the year. As a progressive school, we expect all employees to embrace whole child education, inquiry-based practices, educating for democracy, and experiential learning pedagogies.
This position requires use of a variety of teaching methods to support different learning styles, academic abilities, and have successful experience teaching mathematics. Incumbents should demonstrate excitement in helping all students build self-confidence and understand “mathematician” as part of their identity formation through exploration and discovery. Culturally competent and responsive teaching approaches are required.
Other duties as assigned by Middle School Head
SCOPE OF WORK
Though the work is performed largely independently, ongoing collaboration is expected with all math colleagues across the school. Collaboration with grade level teams, committees as assigned, and the Middle School Head are also expected. Big Ideas Math is used for the Middle School math curriculum.
Interactions occur most routinely with students in the classroom and during other activities. Many informal interactions with students for whom the teacher has no direct supervision or responsibility happen regularly. Daily contact ranges from direct teaching of curriculum to informal exchanges of a personal or social nature. Regular contact with colleagues, particularly those working in the same grade level, discipline or on a joint project is expected. Frequent contact with parents either for scheduled conferences or casual conversation is a community norm. Responsible and active collaboration with colleagues, in all divisions, is expected. Important personal qualities include interest in and demonstrated ability to teach and support teenagers, ability to work effectively with a team, a sense of humor, flexibility, organizational ability, energy, and collegiality.
EDUCATION AND/OR EXPERIENCE
This is a faculty position with an academic year schedule. Teachers are expected to be on campus at least between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily and to attend other functions as designated, including regular Wednesday meetings that potentially have 7:30 am start times or a 5:00 pm end time. Full-time faculty teachers are expected to travel to retreats, conferences and workshops as well as accompany students on various experiential activities throughout the year. There are some mandatory evening and weekend commitments.
Mobility to navigate to classrooms within two-level middle school, and to other facilities within the school campus is required. Occasional travel with groups of students by public transportation, bus or van is also required.
