The Branson School
Ross, CA 94957
The Branson School, a coeducational, college-preparatory day school of 320 students grades 9-12, is located in Marin County, California. Branson, established in 1920, prides itself on fostering nurturing relationships with students while maintaining high academic standards. The faculty values collaboration, professional development, reflection, and continual exploration of good teaching. Branson teachers work in a beautiful, well-resourced environment with dedicated students. The faculty is widely regarded as outstanding and there exists in the faculty community an admirable esprit de corps, a positive attitude about their students and their work, and a notable lack of cynicism.
Branson will be hiring a full-time physics teacher to begin work in August of 2014. Ideal candidates have a strong academic background in physics and the ability to teach a range of courses, including “physics first” to freshmen, standard, college prep physics and both semesters of AP Physics C. Enthusiasm for collaboration with colleagues is essential as all members of the Science Department work on at least one curricular team, and Branson values honest discourse among team members about the goals of courses, pedagogical approaches, and effective methods of assessment.
In 2014-2015, Branson will begin a significant restructuring of our Science curriculum. Strong candidates will be enthusiastic about helping students pursue independent research, an essential component of our revised curriculum.
Two or three years of teaching experience is a plus, but we will give serious consideration to a recent graduate with strong academic credentials and a history of working with high school students.
Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest and resume to:
Assistant Head and Academic Dean
