Job Description:

Meridian Academy is seeking a part-time Mathematics intern to assist during two sections of geometry three days per week and to serve as the primary evaluator of student work. The lead teacher will provide ongoing mentoring and there will be opportunities to teach classes as well.

These sections are part of an interdisciplinary STEM course. While many educational systems are talking about STEM, there are few opportunities to grow as a teacher across these domains. Meridian is experienced at developing and teaching integrated STEM courses. For these sections, geometry is taught in connection with chemistry studies and has a combined theme looking at the history of mathematics and science.

  • Providing written feedback on student projects and nightly assignments that reflect each student’s progress with skills, content, and habits of mind. Recording that feedback in our homework portal.
