The History Department at Darlington School seeks a History teacher beginning with the 2023-2024 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 mastery of fundamental literacy skills including writing, reading comprehension, and research in a range of courses, in particular Human Geography but that may include World History, American History, or other history electives. The candidate must also be able to teach a skills-based curriculum to a diverse group of students using research-based teaching strategies.
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:
