Math Teacher (One-year opening)

Achieve at Noble and Greenough School - Summer 2017

 


Math Teacher (One-year opening):

Founded by George Washington Copp Noble in 1866, Noble and Greenough School is a rigorous academic community dedicated to motivating students to achieve their highest potential and to lead lives characterized by service to others. A co-educational, non-sectarian day and boarding school for students in grades seven (Class VI) through twelve (Class I), Nobles has a current enrollment of just over 600 students–including approximately 50 five-day boarders.

Nobles seeks an experienced teacher of Math for a one-year position. The successful candidate will have a strong academic background, exemplary pedagogy and teaching skills, and three to five years of teaching experience in a rigorous academic setting. A BA is required; an MA with an appropriate focus is preferred.

This is an opportunity to be part of a dynamic department that values skill development, a hands-on approach to teaching, and positive student/teacher relationships.

Successful candidates will be able to contribute significantly to the life of the school in at least one non-academic area (athletics, community service, admissions, or performing arts). Nobles has a long standing commitment to diversity and takes pride in ensuring that this is reflected within our faculty and student body.

Please address your application to Head of Upper School, Michael K. Denning.
