At San Francisco University High School, we believe that the deepest learning requires collaboration among people who embody a diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, and perspectives. In order to build and sustain a community that is comprised of a wide range of social and cultural identities, we must continually engage in furthering our self-knowledge, equity literacy, and ability to communicate effectively across differences. We challenge ourselves to do this work on both a personal and institutional level, recognizing that our community is part of a larger and more complex world.

University High School is seeking a part-time instructor of Spanish that can teach all levels of the language in a program that focuses on the close reading and analysis of literary texts. Candidates should have a degree in Spanish language or literature, teaching experience, preferably in high school, and native or near-native fluency in the language.

Because San Francisco University High School is a college preparatory school, we seek teachers who are thoroughly educated in their disciplines, who are devoted to the love of learning, who will expand the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives present in our community, and who will contribute to the school’s invigorating intellectual climate by promoting our values of care, inquiry, integrity, agency, interconnection. Throughout the school, we seek to hire adults who are stimulating and supportive in their work with students and who share our belief in the moral and educational value of diversity.

To apply for this position, please prepare a resume, cover letter, and a link to a 2-3 minute recorded statement, in Spanish, of your philosophy of teaching Spanish language and culture through literature. The linked recording can be either audio or video.  Please submit all materials using the online application.
