African American, Intellectual and Cultural, Social History
4 Year Degree
St. Andrew's School—an independent, coeducational boarding school for students in grades 9-12—seeks a full-time instructor in History, eager to embrace the History Department's teaching pedagogy, which uses primary sources to have students do the authentic work of a historian. We are especially interested in candidates who have training and expertise in multiple areas of history, and who would therefore be able to teach both our already established American History course, and to design 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: Ancient history, Early Modern European history, world history, African history, or Asian history. The position would begin August 1, 2019.
Since St. Andrew's is a boarding school, additional duties would include weekend duty, dorm/residential duty, and coaching or other activities (advising of student extra-curricular groups, service projects, etc.) in the afternoon. The all-encompassing nature of life as a faculty member at a boarding school means that the most successful candidate will demonstrate equal energy, commitment, and enthusiasm for 1) the discipline of history, 2) developing their craft as a teacher, and 3) the opportunity to work with enthusiastic teenagers in an academically rigorous and caring community. Please see "The Profession of Boarding School Teaching at St. Andrew's" on our website for a more detailed description of our approach to teaching.
To apply, please use the "Apply Now" feature of this page, sending an introductory letter, teaching philosophy, current resume or CV, and list of references.
Candidates must have a B.A. degree in History or a closely related field; a Master's Degree or Ph.D. and some experience teaching is preferred.
