Middle School Science and STEAM Teacher

Faculty / Full-Time

Heronfield Academy, Exeter, NH

Heronfield Academy is an independent middle school located on a pastoral 13-acre campus on the New Hampshire Seacoast.  Serving approximately 90 students in grades 6 through 8, Heronfield provides an academically challenging curriculum centered on nurturing students through the core values of Honesty, Respect, Diligence, Celebration, and Caring.  Heronfield’s teachers are dedicated to working with middle school students at this important period of academic, emotional and personal growth.  As a small school, each person contributes to the community in many ways and also shares the joy of the important work we do together. 

Heronfield Academy seeks a middle school Science and STEAM Teacher for the 2022-2023 school year who will teach two sections of sixth grade general science and two sections of sixth grade TEA (Technology-Engineering-Art) classes.   This is a dynamic opportunity for a candidate who has a background in traditional science study but who also seeks to explore the creative connections between science, art and design.

The sixth grade science classes present a range of studies from astronomy to botany, and from ecology to human body systems.  Innovative small group and individual projects provide opportunities for students to share their knowledge beyond traditional tests and quizzes, and students truly learn by doing.  The same is true in the TEA classes, where creativity can take many forms, from drawing and painting to digital art and design.  There are opportunities for both courses to collaborate across disciplines, such as with English, history, and Spanish classes. 

The person in this role will be part of the sixth grade team and will serve as a sixth grade advisor, overseeing the experience of a small group of students and serving as a liaison between school and home for their families.  There is also the possibility of serving the school in additional capacities, such as teaching a weekly heath and wellness seminar, and/or a weekly study skills course.  

 The ideal candidate will have:

  • A commitment to the mission and core values of the school and to the growth of young people
  • Demonstrated training and two years experience as a science and/or STEAM teacher 
  • A bachelor’s degree in education or related field, with a master’s degree an additional asset
  • Experience in working with middle school students and in guiding their personal and academic growth.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, and demonstrated experience instructing the use of technology to further student learning.  
  • A proactive, positive, team-oriented approach to bringing all measures of success to the school 

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and three references via email to careers@heronfield.org.
