Chemistry Teacher (Family Leave Temporary Replacement)
Millbrook School seeks a chemistry teacher as a family leave replacement in the 2019-2020 fall semester. The position requires teaching three sections of introductory chemistry, primarily with 10th graders. This is an appropriate position for a first-time teacher with a strong chemistry background, as he/she will have excellent mentoring from an experienced chemistry teacher in the department.
Millbrook teaches introductory science utilizing the modeling instructional approach. Our sequence - physics, chemistry, biology requires that science teachers have a broad understanding of the connectedness of scientific disciplines. The school's natural resources (AZA-accredited zoo, wetlands, forest canopy walkway, solar field, LEED Gold certified math and science center) and commitment to environmental stewardship provide unique opportunities for both hands-on work and original research with students.
The position may be a stand-alone part-time position from August through December, or it may come with housing and be combined with other boarding school responsibilities in dorm parenting and athletic coaching, depending on the skill-set of the applicant.
Millbrook is a boarding school; should the applicant seek full-time, full-year employment, coaching and residential life duty will be required, and housing will be provided. Energy for adolescents, adaptability, humor, and integrity are the hallmarks of Millbrook's faculty. Salary is competitive.
