Latin teacher

Faculty / Part-Time

Riverbend School, Natick, MA

Riverbend School is looking to hire a part-time Latin Teacher for 4-5 hours per week to provide instruction to students in grades 7-8 for the remainder of the 2021-22 school year.   Riverbend offers Latin as an introductory course, with the goal of completing a high school Latin 1 course over a two year cycle. Students learn the reasons why Latin, as an ancient language, continues to be studied today. They identify linguistic and cultural connections that deepen their intellect and engage their curiosity. The Cambridge Latin curriculum is contextualized in 1st Century A.D. Pompeii, just before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79. The course contains four principal components: Grammar, Culture, Mythology, and Vocabulary & Derivatives. Students use a work plan for each unit, choosing activities in each of these areas to support their learning. Lessons are given individually and/or in small groups to introduce new material and consolidate learned concepts. Classes meet in person on Monday-Thursday from 12:00-12:45pm, and the instructor will also be compensated for an hour of prep time each week.  Pay is commensurate with experience.

Riverbend School is committed to providing equal opportunity in employment.
