Inaugural Middle School Humanities Teacher
Chapel Hill – Chauncy Hall School, Waltham, MA
In September 2023, Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School will open its doors to 8th grade students who will be the first class of the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall Middle School. After this initial year, the Middle School will expand to 7th and 8th grades.
The School is seeking a creative, progressively minded, and hard-working individual to teach in our brand-new Middle School beginning in the 2023-24 school year. As a school that embraces Multiple Intelligences philosophy and Differentiated Instruction pedagogy, we seek teachers who work diligently to reach all learners and believe, as we do, that it is not “how smart you are” but rather “how you are smart.” This position involves teaching 4 sections of 8th grade Humanities, serving as an 8th grade advisor, and contributing to the creation and growth of the new Middle School. The teacher will also participate in one season of the School’s co-curricular program.
