Teach the universal Language!

Teaching Math

The world needs creative problem-solvers who are fluent in the universal language of mathematics.  Kids need math teachers who challenge and inspire them to think critically and logically.

The 21st century math classroom is no longer just textbooks, note taking and memorization. Math teachers today help students reason, problem solve, and build a deep mathematical understanding. Classrooms are filled with technology and look more like a lab than students sitting quietly in rows. As a math teacher, you are sharing your passion by connecting concepts to real-life contexts.


Teaching Math at an Independent School

In a private/independent school, math teachers enjoy small class sizes that allow for personal interaction, differentiated instruction, and relational learning.

Teaching math in an independent school means you have a school community that is committed to high standards and students' long-term success. Teachers find that math is not about standardized testing, but instead curricular innovation and collaboration. Math teachers are bringing a deep understanding of concepts, real world implications, technology and a greater STEM focus. 


Math Teacher Requirements

Passionate math teachers are in high demand at independent schools. If your qualifications match the following, we would strongly encourage you to apply.

• Degree(s) in Math or Math Education

• Enthusiasm for teaching math and working with students in an independent, private, boarding or college preparatory setting

• State teaching licensure/certification is a plus, but is NOT a hiring prerequisite



  • Tim Green was thorough and thoughtful in his Athletics Assessment of our program at the University of Chicago Lab School, speaking to numerous people, poring over data, and evaluating our programs and facilities. He helped us identify and articulate key priorities over the short and long term. A great pleasure to work with, and the assessment was highly worthwhile. Thank you!
