Friends Select School, a pre-K-12 grade Quaker independent school, is seeking a one-year middle school (grades 5-8) Latin teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This position includes middle school advising and would be a member of the middle school faculty. The ideal candidate will be warm, student-focused, and enjoy working in a close-knit, collegial environment.
The 2020-2021 school year will involve teaching in our school building to a portion of the student body (most all of fifth and sixth-grade students will be in the building for in-person instruction and seventh and eighth grades will be in the building for a 50/50 teaching model, meaning two days of live in-person instruction and two days of asynchronous work and one day of all virtual community time activities). Teachers will deliver instruction in the building to both students in front of them and other students who will join the class virtually via Zoom.
The early Latin curriculum involves an innovative pedagogical approach to looking at the experience of early Rome and its surrounding cities. Experience teaching in middle school is an asset, as is experience in a Quaker setting.
Friends Select School is a 590-student, co-educational, pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, college preparatory, independent school located in center city Philadelphia. The school carries out its mission in a manner reflective of the spiritual and social testimonies of the Religious Society of Friends.
As a Quaker school committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, FSS actively seeks and warmly welcomes applicants from diverse and underrepresented populations. Friends Select School provides programs and services and equal opportunity in the administration of its educational and admissions policies, financial aid programs, employment and the selection of its governing board without regard to gender, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, handicap status, or any status recognized by federal, state and local civil rights and non-discrimination laws.
