The mathematics department seeks a passionate and energetic teacher to fill a full-time teaching position, beginning August 2023. Candidates should be interested in being part of a collaborative group of math teachers and in working with highly motivated high school students in a diverse, mostly residential community.
Applicants should be able to teach pre-college mathematics, ideally, through BC-level Advanced Placement Calculus. Candidates must have an advanced degree in Mathematics or Education or related subjects. Enthusiasm and experience working with adolescents both inside and out of the classroom is essential. Spending time with students by giving extra help, advising, working as dormitory faculty, and leading extracurricular activities, is an integral part of the job.
In addition, candidates should demonstrate:
- Experience teaching in a classroom setting for a minimum of 2 years.
- Willingness to enforce all school policies and rules governing student behavior.
- A commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and to serving the needs of a diverse community.
While individual responsibilities will vary from one faculty position to another, the major job duties of all faculty members generally include the following:
- Teaching: Faculty teach four classes per trimester. All classes are student-centered discussions around a Harkness table. In order to meet the intellectual needs of the school’s talented and highly motivated students, teachers are expected to be dedicated to daily preparation for the best possible classes.
- Cultural Competency: Faculty are expected to demonstrate respect for diversity of identities and experiences, an orientation toward equity and inclusion, and cultural competency in all aspects of Academy life.
- Residential Life: Faculty generally reside in campus housing and play a critical role in cultivating Exeter’s community-centered student dormitory life. Each faculty member is generally responsible for one weekend a month and one to two week-nights of dormitory duty per week, depending on the dormitory size.
- Advising: Faculty are expected to serve as mentors to student advisees throughout students’ time at Exeter. The adviser is the main liaison between an advisee’s family/guardian and the Academy.
- Extracurricular Activities: Faculty are generally expected to participate in the school’s extracurricular activities (e.g. coaching, advising student clubs, and/or committee work).
- Criminal background check (reviewed every 5 years).
- Driving Record Check (reviewed every 3 years).
- COVID Vaccine Policy: Phillips Exeter Academy requires all community members without a medical or religious exemption to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and remain up to date with COVID-19 vaccine boosters. *With the exception of a PEA-approved medical or religious exemption.
