Upper School History Instructor
Description
The Upper Campus of Sierra Canyon seeks a dynamic and experienced full-time teacher of History to start at the beginning of the 2019 - 2020 school year. The Upper Campus consists of 7th 12th grade levels. We're looking for a teacher who exhibits excellence in the classroom, encourages students' development as informed and ethical citizens of the world, and is interested in working collaboratively with colleagues. Sierra Canyon teachers enjoy an outstanding work environment and excellent benefits, and engage with students who are eager to learn. As a private independent school, the school actively seeks to increase the diversity of its faculty and develop an inclusive community.

Job Responsibilities:
The primary classroom responsibility will be teaching across grade levels classes that currently exist in the history department curriculum. There are a few possible needs in content, ranging from Ancient and Pre-Modern Civilizations to European History, though the school desires the best candidate possible to join its ranks. There may also be the opportunity to teach a section of U.S. History. In addition, candidates may be expected to teach an elective, especially one in which the candidate has had teaching experience.
Outside of the classroom, teachers are encouraged to lead clubs, engage with students, attend outdoor ed. trips, et al.
Other responsibilities include those that are normally part of a private independent school commitment: weekly duties, positive interactions with students and parents, becoming a member of the community by attending different events.

Qualifications:
Some experience teaching history or social sciences at the middle and high school levels in private independent schools.
A masters' degree (preferred).
Interest in and demonstrated skill working with adolescents.
The interest, initiative, and energy to thrive in a lively and fast-paced academic community.
A sense of humor, humility, and the ability to work as part of a team within one's own division, as a member of the history department and as an integral part of the faculty.
A commitment to an inclusive community.
