Position
Spanish teacher (grades 9-12)
Description
Stevenson School is seeking a full-time World Languages teacher for the 22/23 school year. The successful candidate will teach multiple levels of Spanish classes.

All Stevenson teachers contribute to the co-curricular life of the school: they serve as an advisor to a small group of students and offer co-curricular activities in two of the three sports seasons (activities include athletics coaching, outdoor education, theater, and supervision of a range of other clubs and activities).

Stevensonís Language Department promotes critical thinking, responsible scholarship, and creative expression within an imaginative curriculum. In a seminar setting, we model a learning environment framed on the values of inquiry, mutual respect, and cooperative support. The program emphasizes the content and skills necessary for students to find success in college and beyond.

Further expectations:

Be philosophically aligned with the mission of the school
Be inclined to critically-reflective practices across the full scope of craft, and deploy a learner-centered approach to instruction.
Meet and collaborate enthusiastically with colleagues
Communicate with students, parents, and colleagues in a timely and professional manner.
Display excellent classroom management, communication, and organizational skills.

Qualifications

A BA in Spanish or a related field
A demonstrated proficiency in French, and willingness to teach French at an introductory level at least is a considerable plus.
Professional experience relevant to working with high school students
Experience with instructional technology, such as G Suite, learning management systems and other related resources. This is particularly relevant in current circumstances, and facility with a range of educational technology tools is a significant plus.
Ability to contribute significantly to an established area of co-curricular life, such as by coaching an interscholastic team at either the junior varsity or varsity level, or participating in the outdoor education program.
Must successfully pass a criminal background check.
Absent an allowable exemption, must be vaccinated against COVID.

Compensation
Salary is competitive, commensurate with experience and education level, and includes meals when school is in sessions. Stevenson provides an excellent, comprehensive benefits package, a variety of health insurance offerings, dental, vision, life, short- and long-term disability offerings, and HSA/FSA options. Resources to support advanced degree work, as well as participation in professional conferences, workshops, summer study, and travel, are also available. As Stevenson is a boarding school there may be an opportunity to participate in our boarding program, for which accommodation (plus utilities) is provided. A significant portion of our faculty, however, do live off campus in the surrounding communities of the Monterey Peninsula.

Interested candidates should provide a cover letter (addressed to Dr. Dan Griffiths, head of upper division) stating interest in the position, a resume, and three supervisory references from recent employment. All materials should be uploaded to https://www.stevensonschool.org/about/employment
