Humanities Teaching Position

Olney Friends School is seeking a full-time Humanities teacher. Classroom responsibilities would include teaching a Humanities course, and other, more flexible coursework, according to interest and not necessarily limited to Humanities. All Olney faculty members act as student advisors; may participate in dorm or evening roles; sponsor extracurricular activities, events, and/or sports; and immerse themselves in the daily life of the community.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, self-starter. The position requires at least a Bachelor’s degree, either in History, Literature, or in a field that closely relates to Humanities, and teaching experience. A Master’s degree is preferable but less important than an interest in authentic, real-world learning and a commitment to encouraging critical thinking skills, cooperation, communication, and creativity.

Teachers who work at Olney enjoy great students, unusually small classes, and the chance to develop their teaching within a supportive and collaborative environment. We are a student-centered school, by nature, and 2018 will be the third year in the development of a unique, school-wide, mastery-based approach to curriculum. Together with students and other faculty, you could be part of something entirely new.

All employees at Olney Friends School must pass a background check and complete an application form as conditions of employment. Additionally, all faculty members must become certified in first aid and CPR and become mandatory abuser reporters.
