The St. Andrew’s History Department seeks a full-time instructor eager to embrace our philosophy of instruction. We believe in teaching and empowering students to do the authentic work of historians, focusing on the development of their historical thinking skills through primary source analysis. We are especially interested in candidates who have training and expertise in multiple areas of history, and are therefore able to teach our already established ninth grade American History course, and to design and teach new semester-long, upper-Form elective courses that broaden and deepen the offerings of the Department—with a preference for courses that would engage one or more of the following areas: East Asian history, African history, and/or world history. In applying to join this creative and collegial department, candidates should show a lively interest in pedagogy, collaboration, current historical scholarship, and professional development. As historians, we have a distinctive opportunity to guide students in engaging questions of equity and justice, making a demonstrated commitment to cultural competence particularly essential for any candidate. Candidates should have at least a B.A. in History or a closely related field; a graduate degree and/or teaching experience is desirable but not necessary.
As a fully residential school community, we seek candidates who, in addition to the language and proficiencies described above, have a passion for teaching and a deep appreciation and respect for the privilege and honor of teaching and living with adolescents. Please see “The Profession of Boarding School Teaching at St. Andrew’s” for a more detailed description of our approach to teaching.
