Deerfield Academy announces a search for the position of Teacher of Mathematics to begin duties 15 August 2014.
The primary responsibility is to teach all levels of mathematics from Algebra I to courses that extend beyond BC Calculus. Other responsibilities for this position include those that are normally part of a boarding school commitment: dormitory residence or association, coaching assignments, dining hall duties, committee work, and other routine duties.
Prior experience teaching classes such as AP Statistics, Multivariable Calculus, Number Theory, Linear and Abstract Algebra at the high school or college level is preferable. A candidate must also possess the interest and energy to thrive in a lively work pace, a genuine appreciation of adolescents, a sense of humor and the ability to work as part of a team. Clearly a desire to live and work in a residential academic community is essential.
Deerfield Academy is situated in the middle of Historic Deerfield, a colonial village in western Massachusetts. The Academy is nonsectarian and coeducational; it enrolls 635 students and employs 120 faculty; it offers competitive salary and benefits packages.
Candidates should send a cover letter and resume to John Taylor, Associate Head of School, via e-mail to email@example.com. The subject line in the email should be titled Math Teacher.
