Mathematics Teacher

Faculty / Full-Time

Lawrence Academy, Groton, MA

Lawrence Academy (LA) is a boarding and day school in Groton, MA, serving 400 students in grades 9-12. LA enjoys its heritage as one of the oldest independent schools in the country while embracing a contemporary student-centered approach that supports its mission. In LA’s tightly knit environment, students are supported and encouraged to exercise their minds, discover their voices, learn creatively, and take their own initiative. The academic program is uniquely hands-on and allows students to discover how their education can be applied in daily life.


LA has an opening for an experienced, innovative Mathematics Teacher starting in August 2024. Candidates must have a solid background in algebra I & II, geometry, and pre-calculus. Experience with computer science, and/or finite topics (probability & statistics, graph theory) and calculus is a plus. Candidates should be comfortable teaching in a non-traditional math environment and working collaboratively with colleagues to develop curriculum and resources. Candidates should also embrace developing learning strategies to help a range of students to achieve success.


Lawrence Academy’s mathematics department uses an integrated curriculum that, rather than teaching the usual sequence of algebra/geometry/algebra over the first three years of high school, combines algebra and geometry with a problem-solving approach to mathematics. Lower-level math classes are taught using a mastery approach to learning. Math classes at LA focus on real-world math applications; classes are structured so that students are actively engaged in finding solutions to problems and mathematical simulations through discovery exercises and investigations. The math department uses Ti84 graphing calculators in the classroom as well as software applications such as Geogebra and Desmos. Candidates should be interested in developing their technological skills and applications for use in the classroom. Candidates must also be very comfortable working one-on-one with students and be open and accessible for extra help; important components of being a math teacher at Lawrence Academy.


In addition to teaching responsibilities, candidates must be willing to engage in all aspects of boarding school life from curricular, co-curricular (primarily athletics), and extracurricular programs at the school. Campus housing is available for faculty positions. Interested candidates should expect to live in a dormitory, but on-campus (non-dorm) or off-campus housing might be an available alternative. All members of the faculty are part of our residential program and have regular weeknight duty and some weekend duties.


Required Qualifications:

  • Minimum of bachelor’s degree and expertise in subject matter.
  • Prior teaching experience preferred.
  • Enthusiasm and desire to work with high school age students.
  • Successfully complete required background checks (criminal, sexual offender and driving records and fingerprinting).
