Part Time

Upper School Biology Teacher

Maimonides School 34 Philbrick Road, Brookline MA

Maimonides School, a Modern Orthodox day school in Brookline, MA, seeks an energetic and experienced educator to teach courses in 11th grade biology and a senior elective in AP Biology. The school is looking for a dynamic, creative teacher with demonstrated enthusiasm for developing learners’ academic and critical thinking skills while nurturing their social, emotional, and spiritual growth; interest and experience in curriculum development; and a commitment to innovative pedagogy.

Candidates should have a strong and diverse background in the biological sciences; preferably prior experience teaching AP Biology, or its equivalent, at the secondary level; and a commitment to continued professional growth. The focus of science teaching in the Upper School is on interactive, experiential learning and depth of understanding that connects to a learner’s natural curiosity about the way the biological world works. We emphasize hands-on inquiry, questioning and proposing solutions, conducting research, and analysis of student findings.

Responsibilities will include teaching three classes (.75 FTE) as part of a team of very strong science teachers. Maimonides’ commitment to our families requires significant written and oral communication about student work and progress. Our commitment to our students often requires individualized attention outside of the classroom.

Candidates should have a minimum of three years of biology teaching experience and a commitment to working as part of a collaborative team that prepares students with the skills, critical thinking abilities, and content knowledge to succeed as they develop as learners and progress toward college. A Master’s degree is strongly preferred.

Competitive salary and benefits commensurate with years of experience and highest degree.

Please send resume and cover letter to jobs@maimonides.org with “Biology” in the subject line.

Qualifications: Bachelor’s Degree + Advanced Degree Preferred.
