Moses Brown School is a co-educational independent day school for nursery through twelfth grade. Moses Brown, a Friends school, exists to inspire students to reach their full intellectual and spiritual potential. We engage students in a rich academic curriculum, a broad offering of arts and athletics, and a daily life strongly rooted in the Quaker values of community, equality, and service. We affirm the Quaker belief that there is an inner light in each person that influences our decision-making and leads us to the truths we seek. We consider virtues of simplicity, integrity, group wisdom, and respect for differences paramount to helping students of all faiths and backgrounds discover their missions in the world.
In its hiring practices, Moses Brown deliberately seeks to maximize the diversity of the school (in terms of class, gender, ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, abilities/disabilities, and language).
The primary responsibility of this position is to teach four sections of science, advise 10-12 middle school students, work collaboratively with Middle School Team and Department colleagues, and communicate routinely with parents, colleagues and students. For this particular position, knowledge of middle level best practices and experience working with middle school children is critical. Excitement about creating engaging project-based learning experiences and supporting the social-emotional and academic growth of middle school children is required.
Qualifications: Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a four-year accredited institution. Two to five years of teaching experience is preferred, although not a requirement for application. We seek candidates who are passionate about their desire to teach, advise, coach, and learn from middle students, and eager to embrace and forward the Quaker mission of the school.
To apply: Please submit a resume, statement of interest, and the names of three references to email@example.com. Please indicate the position, “MS Science”, in the subject line of the email. Once we have read and discussed applications, we will be in touch with select candidates to arrange for interviews.
