Applewild School invites applications for a middle school science teacher (grades 5-9) for the 2021-2022 school year.
Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to lead by influence are important skills to help Applewild increase its inquiry-based, student-centered, interdisciplinary learning environment. Willingness to participate in professional learning committees, advising, and coaching is desired.
The teacher will work with the Dean of Academics, faculty, and outside consultants to support our school’s efforts to adopt best STEM practices and be able to design, develop, assess, and manage STEM/STEAM learning experiences. We are looking for a professional who can help design contemporary/progressive curriculum, especially in design thinking, engineering, robotics, machine thinking, and who can help us further our efforts to integrate the use of technology in pedagogy from kindergarten through grade nine.
A Master’s degree in a field in, or closely related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics is preferred. Prior independent school teaching experience, and a background and experience to teach in several disciplines within STEM and/or maker space experience, are preferred.
