The College Preparatory School
Three-Quarter Time Teaching Position / Sabbatical Replacement
Spring semester – January to June, 2015
The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland, California, seeks a dynamic and innovative Chemistry teacher beginning in January and ending in early June, 2015. We seek candidates who have a minimum of 3 to 5 years teaching experience and some graduate training in Chemistry. Candidates should have a strong interest in working in a multicultural community and should be eager to embrace spirited intellectual challenges in a rewarding academic environment.
This position will involve teaching three sections of 10th grade Chemistry. Sections average 16 students. The College Prep science program is unique, innovative and rigorous. Three year-long courses are required: Physics (9th grade), Chemistry (10th grade) and Biology (11th grade). Beyond required courses, the vast majority of our students choose to take one or more science electives. Students use both texts and teacher-produced material in classes. Science teachers work closely with one another as teams for particular classes and across the curriculum.
Candidates should be prepared to spend additional time getting to know and help students outside of the classroom. In addition to their classroom responsibilities, College Prep teachers take a share of other departmental, committee, and general school responsibilities, most of them during the 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. school day. Teachers thrive at College Prep when they partake in the opportunities offered by a rich co-curricular program and a tightly knit, diverse community. Additionally, all faculty members enjoy sharing a prepared lunch every day. The salary is competitive.
