Diversity is a core value at Vermont Academy. We are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning environment for all students, staff, and faculty. We believe every member on our team enriches our diversity by exposing us to a broad range of ways to understand and engage with the world, identify challenges, and discover, design, and deliver solutions.
Vermont Academy currently has an open Chemistry classroom/laboratory teaching position. Candidates will be asked to teach AP Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, and Chemistry. AP Chemistry is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course and further develops a conceptual understanding of chemistry from Honors Chemistry. The big ideas in AP Chemistry include thermodynamics, kinetics, and equilibrium. Honors Chemistry explores atoms and elements; the structure and properties of matter; and chemical reactions at a level that prepares students for AP Chemistry and college general chemistry. Chemistry is a laboratory science that investigates the composition of matter and the physical and chemical changes it undergoes. Candidates with the ability to cross over and teach in another area of science like Biology or Introductory Physical Science will get special consideration.
The successful candidate will be an accomplished, innovative teacher with excellent interpersonal skills, organizational ability, and an enthusiasm for working with adolescents. We seek a teacher to teach four to five academic sections, be a part of the residential life program, lead or coach an afterschool program, and be an academic advisor. Teaching experience at the secondary level is preferred. Five years of Teaching experience at the secondary level, expertise in teaching/facilitating AP Chemistry, and familiarity with NGSS Science Practices is preferred. Technical facility with Google Workspace, Zoom, and other software commonly used in schools is expected.
