Lincoln School, founded in 1884, is an independent K-12 Quaker girls’ school in Providence, Rhode Island. We also offer a coed program from six weeks through Pre-kindergarten. We are seeking applicants for a full-time Upper School History Department faculty member for the 2024-25 school year. Lincoln School values working with a diverse faculty and staff and seeks applications from individuals who share our commitment to educating girls to fearlessly embrace the opportunities and responsibilities of full citizenship in a complex world.

The ideal candidate has a strong background in education. A degree in History and a Master’s degree in Education are preferred, but other appropriate experience will be considered. Applicants should have exemplary pedagogical skills, a passion for teaching and learning from young people, and a love for working with adolescents in all facets of their school experience inside and outside the classroom. In addition, qualified candidates must maintain a reflective teaching practice that involves collaboration and critical dialogue with colleagues and division leadership about their teaching practice. Qualified candidates will be adept at using technology in the classroom as a means of maximizing student learning.

Candidates should have experience with student-centered teaching, together with confidence and experience teaching History at the high school level. Candidates should also demonstrate a serious commitment to teaching writing and research. Courses will cover topics in modern world history and American history.

In addition to teaching classes, responsibilities include serving as an advisor, attending all required meetings and functions, upholding Lincoln’s Quaker values, and supporting students outside the classroom. Teachers at Lincoln embrace and uphold Lincoln’s values of diversity, equity, and inclusion; and they bring anti-racist practices into their classroom.

How to Apply:

Interested candidates should send a resume, statement of educational philosophy and a list of 3-5 references to careers@lincolnschool.org. Please list the position title in the subject heading.
