The World Languages Department at Darlington School seeks an experienced Spanish teacher beginning with the 2022-2023 school year. A Darlington teacher fully supports the mission and values of the school and has the primary responsibility for creating the best student experience possible in support of the school’s learning framework, The Cycle of Learning. The candidate should value the craft of teaching as much as the skills and content being learned, and would join a dynamic environment of teaching professionals who are continuously growing and collaborating.
The candidate must demonstrate language fluency and knowledge of best teaching practices as outlined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. The candidate must have a genuine appreciation and passion for teaching children and a desire to work with all types of learners. Preference will be given to teachers who are native speakers or have international experience and can support other programs within the World Language department.
The ideal candidate will have classroom teaching experience and hold a relevant degree in the content area and/or teaching (master’s degree preferred). Darlington seeks candidates who can contribute to and will support the academic and extracurricular life of the Upper School. Preference will be given to teachers who can fulfill an extracurricular need of the school, such as coaching a sport or academic team, or leading an extracurricular activity such as fine arts or community service.
The clearest set of expectations for a Darlington teacher is fully described as our Academic Standards, which are highlighted below:
