Trinity Hall seeks a full-time STEM Teacher for the 2019-2020 school year, with particular focus on Engineering, Physics and Mathematics. STEM at Trinity Hall is studied through a student-centered, inquiry-based interdisciplinary approach that encourages active participation, collaboration, and 21st century skills. Students are empowered to take ownership of the material, making connections on their own and sharing their insights (and questions) with the group. This move from a lecture-based model to a collaborative approach challenges students to become risk-takers and transforms their analytical and research skills, preparing them for a lifetime of problem-solving.
The successful candidate must be able to assume responsibility for the leadership and administration of the classes assigned; facilitate a positive academic and formational experience in the Catholic Tradition; create and organize a classroom that facilitates student learning and makes use of effective technology tools; provide for the safety and welfare of all students; teach in accordance with Trinity Hall policies and guidelines; and show respect for all individuals and fairness in dealing with students and parents. We expect all candidates to have strong interpersonal skills, excellent communication skills, and an understanding of the developmental needs of adolescent and teenage girls.
Under the supervision of the STEM Team Leader and the Head of School, a Trinity Hall teacher endeavors to achieve the academic, social, and spiritual formational goals of the school. Full-time faculty are expected to teach four or five courses per academic year, serve as a leader to a student advisory group, sponsor at least one club or activity, and contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school. All faculty play a vital role in the continued development, growth, and success of Trinity Hall.
The ideal candidate will possess a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent, with a preference for an advanced degree(s). She/he will have a minimum of three years secondary school experience, preferably in an independent school community, with a track record of successful creation and implementation of innovative curriculum, working actively with students, communicating with parents and collaborating with colleagues. Work experience outside of education in a STEM-related profession will be considered a plus.
Candidates must present well, and be articulate, dynamic, highly organized, and able to work collaboratively. Excellent communication skills are required. In addition, all faculty should be prepared to be involved in the life of the school community.
Trinity Hall is an independent school committed to academic excellence. The salary and benefits package for this position will be competitive with other NAIS and NJAIS schools and are commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the candidate.
