Milton Academy is seeking a full time Upper School (grades 9-12) English teacher to begin in September 2022. We seek candidates who demonstrate student-centered, innovative teaching practices, and a commitment to anti-racist values and pedagogy. The department teaches literature through close reading. In encountering and discussing literature, students develop cultural wisdom, empathy, and an eye towards truth and beauty on the page and in our world. The department’s approach to writing cultivates the control of and appreciation for language as a means of authentic self-expression.
The teacher will teach four classes focused on literature and writing, typically at two or more grade levels, and engage with students beyond the classroom. All teachers advise 6-8 students. Teachers are also expected to advise a student activity or coach a team or intramural sport, in addition to other responsibilities. Faculty members residing on campus typically live and work in a dormitory and all teachers living on campus have responsibilities in the residential program. Milton Academy encourages professional growth and provides support and opportunities for educators to evolve their craft.
Three years of classroom experience at the secondary or collegiate level and an advanced degree is preferred. Teacher certification is not required.
