The College Preparatory School
Quarter time Teaching Position
The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland, California, seeks a dynamic and innovative teacher of Japanese III for the academic year 2014-2015. Candidates should have experience teaching Japanese to English-speaking students at the secondary or college level. They should be prepared for the special claims of an independent school and for the commitment required by a demanding and rewarding academic environment. Teachers thrive at College Prep when they stir and share the intellectual energy and curiosity of our well-prepared and motivated students and when they partake in the opportunities offered by a rich co-curricular program and a tightly knit and diverse community.
This position includes teaching one class of Japanese III, five days a week. The goals of this class are to create a full immersion classroom experience, to teach advanced writing skills, and to promote a global perspective among the students. Candidates should be interested in and prepared to provide significant cultural information about Japan. They should also be prepared to spend an additional period a day getting to know and to help students outside of the classroom. The salary is competitive. A much enjoyed and appreciated benefit is a prepared lunch for faculty and staff.
