Lincoln School in Providence, RI seeks a high school science teacher with at least five years of classroom experience to teach physics at an introductory and advanced level. Lincoln School follows a “physics first” curricular progression; candidates should be prepared to support the Grade 9 physics curriculum by helping students sharpen algebraic skills while fostering scientific curiosity. The position also includes teaching two advanced-level, semester-long physics electives as well as the Physical Applications of Calculus, an intensive course that emphasizes the real world applications of physics and calculus concepts
Starting in the fall of 2017, Lincoln School will no longer offer Advanced Placement courses and we are looking to hire a teacher who will be enthusiastic about designing innovative new curricula in a post AP educational environment. A passion for collaborative curriculum design, experience with interdisciplinary courses of study and a commitment to maintaining a reflective teaching practice are all essential qualities of a successful candidate.
Qualified candidates should have a passion for helping students to explore the physical sciences and for contextualizing scientific concepts through hands-on learning activities that have real-world applications. A willingness to engage in a critical dialogue about instructional practice with peers and a desire to be involved in a wide range of school activities in and outside of the classroom are also essential. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, and statement of educational philosophy, to Kim Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
