We are currently seeking highly qualified content area specialists and teachers to instruct our Academy program for highly gifted K-8th graders. Previously offered classes include: Rube Goldberg Design and Creation, Chemistry, Egyptian Mythology, Neuro-Energy, Astronomy, Shakespeare and Ecology. We aim to provide content-rich classes that challenge the curious young minds we serve.
We are particularly interested in hiring teachers with the following areas of expertise:
- K-3rd grade science
- Earth/Life Science
Academy teachers are passionate about their subject knowledge, are life-long learners, and are willing to become an integral part of the IEA community. Successful applicants will be expected to collaborate with the Academy Coordinator to shape excellent course content and best-fit pedagogies for our unique students. Class sizes at the Academy are small, with an average ratio of 1:6, enabling us to deliver a content-rich, highly modified curriculum to each student.
We expect Academy teachers to be more than their area of expertise to our students; they are mentors and role models. Teacher training and professional development is provided. Applicants are not required to be credentialed teachers but must have experience working with children through outreach, volunteering, or tutoring.
This contract position is compensated at a flat rate for the total hours of instruction.
To apply for this position, please send a brief cover letter, resume, and two references.
