Do you have the desire to help students become STEM-trained problem-solvers, designers, researchers, technicians, physicians—world-changers? Share your passion for science by becoming a science teacher in a private school!
Science education is no longer just the study of biology, chemistry, and physics, but can include computer science, robotics and more. Many private/independent schools that we work with are incorporating research, statistics, Makerspace Labs, 3-D printers and entrepreneurship into their science curriculum.
In a private/independent school, science teachers enjoy small class sizes that support differentiated instruction and hands-on lab work.
Teaching science in an independent school means you have a school community that is committed to high standards and students' long-term success. Teachers find that science is not about standardized testing, but instead curricular innovation and collaboration. If you're interested in teaching biology, physics, chemistry, or any STEM related courses, we can help.
Passionate science teachers are in high demand at independent schools. We place everyone from elementary science teachers to AP Physics teachers. If your qualifications match the following, we would strongly encourage you to apply.
• Degree(s) in Science (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, etc.) or in Science Education
• Enthusiasm for teaching in an independent, private, day or boarding college-prep school
• State teaching licensure/certification is a plus but is NOT a hiring prerequisite
