As a student-athlete, you appreciate teamwork and the impact of great leaders—great coaches and teachers, in particular. Maybe you have that gift—to mentor and motivate, to educate and make a difference. If you’ve enjoyed working with children or adolescents – perhaps as a camp counselor or a youth league coach – you may have the background and the gifts that schools seek: the ability to connect with kids and teenagers. Private and independent schools seeks teachers that can reach the whole student through being a classroom teacher, mentor, and coach.
Teaching at independent schools means building close relationships in small classes, innovating and collaborating, inspiring discovery, focusing on learning rather than test taking. School communities include dedicated faculty, supportive alumni, and devoted parents, all committed to preparing young people for lives of leadership and service. Athletic programs train champions for life, teaching young student-athletes to pursue excellence, persevere through adversity, and place team first.
In our groundbreaking Leadership Study based on assessments of almost 250 sitting heads of school, you'll read about the specific personality traits that distinguish independent school leaders. Nine reports published serially this fall on topics such as Ambition, Learning Approaches, and Interpersonal Sensitivity. Does your personality predict your performance?
