Middle School Math Teacher (Maternity Leave)

Successful candidates will be experienced middle school teachers who are committed to mathematics education. The mathematics at Friends is an inquiry based, conceptual, hands-on math program where students grapple with problems and make meaning of the mathematics for themselves. We strive to build the capacity in students to think mathematically, solve problems with confidence, and to love mathematics. Teachers are engaged in regular collaboration, curriculum development and pedagogical reflection. Candidates should have a strong math background and be invested in collaborating with colleagues and working closely with students. Experience as an instructional leader or curriculum designer are also critical for the next instructor.
