Computer Science Coordinator

Website Sacramento Country Day School

Independent Day School, PreK - 12

Sacramento Country Day School, the leading independent school and number-one ranked STEM high school in Sacramento, seeks to hire a Computer Science Coordinator.

Serving more than 500 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, Country Day’s mission is to “inspire intellectual discovery and engage a diverse community to think critically, live creatively, and act compassionately.”

Country Day embraces the ideals of a liberal arts education. We encourage our students to develop the full range of their capabilities – intellectual, physical, creative, social, and moral, and we cultivate in them the habits and skills that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives.  Our teachers are active in the school community, serving as advisors, trip chaperones, and coaches. The ideal candidate will add strength to a wide range of programs and embrace a diverse and powerful learning community.

The Role

This full-time position will partner with the administration to build upon an already robust high school computer science program. The strong candidates will embrace designing curriculum and teaching within an innovative model that inspires students to understand deeply and to create uniquely.

Currently, the program includes introductory clubs and electives, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Computer Science A, and an original class – Advanced Topics in Computer Science, which uses principles of artificial intelligence and advanced statistics to develop student-centered projects. However, the coordinator would be instrumental in rethinking these course offerings and the scope and sequence of the department.

Candidates will also be prepared to integrate themselves in the life of the school, including, but not limited to, teaching courses in the elective program, serving as an advisor, and chaperoning field trips (when permitted).

Qualifications

Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field; graduate degrees preferred.Experience and expertise that align with our STEM program.
Demonstrated successful STEM teaching experience and someone who enjoys working with children.
Excellent verbal and written skills, as well as outstanding interpersonal skills.
Demonstrated ability to work well with students and colleagues; willingness to be an active, enthusiastic member of the Country Day community.
Strong commitment to equity and inclusion.

Country Day is an inclusive community and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. To apply, please send a single .pdf file that includes a letter of interest, resume, and list of three (3) references to Head of High School Brooke Wells at resume@saccds.org.
