Pingree School seeks an experienced science teacher to serve as a member of the science department beginning with the 2022-2023 academic year. We seek educators who will build upon Pingree’s forward looking curriculum design, emphasis on the practical application of the sciences, and commitment to integrating anti-racism into coursework.  The successful candidate will have knowledge of and passion for science and a foundational background in two or more scientific fields, to include chemistry, coupled with an appreciation for problem-based, student centered pedagogy that emphasizes the development of young people to be global stewards and scientific thinkers. They will be committed to and enjoy working with adolescents in all areas of school life, be open to exploring collaborative, experiential and interdisciplinary teaching opportunities, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, and demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion.

Primary responsibilities include teaching four sections of chemistry including honors and advanced levels. We seek educators who have experience teaching Advanced Placement Chemistry, Advanced Level Courses, or Introductory College Level Chemistry courses who are eager to move beyond AP’s by developing independent advanced level chemistry courses that prioritize integration with other disciplines. In a small department such as Pingree’s, the successful candidate will have a wide range of teaching abilities, experiences and enthusiasm for current trends in the field and a strong willingness to collaborate with other members of the department and engage in curriculum development. Other science related duties include participating in Science Department meetings and contributing to Science Department projects and initiatives.  Additional responsibilities include coaching and and/or supervising two seasons of either a sport or equivalent afternoon co-curricular activity. A bachelor’s degree is required and a master’s degree and some teaching experience is preferred.
