One Year Half-Time Math Teacher
Concord Academy, an independent college preparatory school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, Massachusetts, has a one-year half-time opening in its math department, to begin July 1, 2021. The math department anticipates the availability of a one-year, half-time opening for the school-year 21-22. There is the potential for this teacher to grow into a longer-term role. Chartered in 1922, the school currently enrolls approximately 400 boarding and day students from ten countries and territories and fifteen states.
Students are engaged in a community animated by a love of learning, enriched by a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, and guided by a covenant of common trust. Students and teachers work together as a community of learners dedicated to intellectual rigor and creative endeavor. In a caring and challenging atmosphere, students discover and develop talents as scholars, artists, musicians, and athletes and are encouraged to find their voices. The school is committed to embracing and broadening the diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and talents of its people. Common trust challenges students to balance individual freedom with responsibility and service to a larger community. Such learning prepares students for lives as committed citizens.
We actively seek applicants who reflect and support our mission-driven commitment to creating and maintaining a diverse and equitable school community. The successful applicant will have demonstrated experience with inclusive teaching practices and a commitment to advancing the core tenets of the school’s mission.
Concord Academy Mission Statement
We are a community animated by love of learning,
diverse and striving for equity,
with common trust as our foundation.
Honoring each individual, we challenge and expand
our understanding of ourselves and the world
through purposeful collaboration and creative engagement.
We cultivate empathy, integrity, and responsibility
to build a more just and sustainable future.
The school seeks a math teacher with experience in teaching mathematics to students grades 9-12, ranging from introductory algebra to courses including and perhaps beyond AP-level calculus. The ability to teach economics or other social sciences is appealing. The successful candidate will be an innovative educator and teacher who brings a passion and enthusiasm for helping adolescents acquire and achieve a high level of proficiency in math. Applicants should have significant coursework in a relevant subject, experience implementing inclusive classroom practices, and success supporting students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields to become skilled and confident math learners. Responsibilities may include math tutoring in our Academic Support Center.
The school provides a competitive benefits package, and salary is commensurate with experience. All faculty members at Concord Academy participate fully in the life of the school; responsibilities include advising, serving on committees and/or clubs, and periodically providing an adult presence at school events. Coaching an athletic team is welcomed but not required and is remunerated separately. Housing is not available for 21-22 but could be in future years for a candidate who stays on in a long-term role.
The school anticipates being open for in-person learning for the school year 2021-2022 and may need its faculty to be willing and able to adapt to remote or Hyflex (some students in the classroom and some remote) conditions.
Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter, resume, and transcripts to:
