Middle School Math Teacher

Green Acres School is seeking a full-time teacher of math to middle school students (primarily grades 7 and 8). The successful candidate will have an approach to the discipline that encourages a high degree of math fluency and problem-solving by balancing an established and successful scope and sequence with interesting and engaging projects. We believe that students are most successful when their ability to “speak and write math” is cultivated alongside their ability to solve problems showing their work. The successful candidate will have a deep understanding of how math creates models of our world, and she or he will incorporate that understanding by teaching math not just as abstract problems and theory, but also as it explains and illustrates the world around us. The successful candidate will have the capacity to meet the needs of a range of learners—both engaging struggling students as they hone their number sense and teaching advanced algebra that starts to push into trigonometry. The 7/8 math teacher also serves as a student advisor and engages students in social-emotional learning as well as acting as a liaison between advisee families and the school. He or she will accompany students as a chaperone on overnight trips of 3-5 days once or twice a year. Finally, the 7/8 math teacher incorporates MathCounts work into occasional lessons and leads our MathCounts team in countywide and statewide competitions.

Requirements:

The successful candidate will possess the following capacities: a sincere love of working with tweens and young teenagers, a passion for math and the teaching of it, curiosity and a growth mindset, the ability to provide differentiated instruction, and an interest in integrating technology into the curriculum.
