Middle School Math/Science Teacher: Start Date 8-26-19
FGCS is seeking applicants for the position of math/science teacher for our middle school (7th/8th grades).
While academic standards for our students are the same as those of other public schools, instruction here emphasizes subject-matter integration and experiential learning. Our middle school program has a culture of personal connection, inclusion, and high expectations.
Licensed applicants must hold current a Oregon teacher license with endorsements that authorize them to teach 7th & 8th grade math and science. Under state law, public charter schools like FGCS may consider unlicensed teaching applicants who can demonstrate content knowledge in math and science.
Along with typical teaching responsibilities, this position requires an individual able to:
Create integrated, project-based curriculum;
Help plan and lead weekly curriculum-based field trips (called “Out and Abouts”);
Teach social-emotional curriculum and support student growth in this area;
Differentiate to meet the diverse needs of students;
Collaborate and communicate effectively to perform professionally as an integral member of a teaching team;
Create and maintain a strong class culture.
Special consideration will be given to applicants who have the following: Three years' teaching experience; experience working in a place-based or project-based school; experience working with children in 7th and 8th grades; ESOL credentials.
Please learn about our school’s mission and approach at this website, then send a cover letter, resume and three letters of reference by attachment to Vanessa Gray, principal, at email@example.com. No phone calls, please. Compensation is commensurate with experience. This position includes health and dental insurance (employer pays 86% of cost), as well as short and long-term disability insurance. Start date is: August 26, 2019.
