We are seeking a dynamic teacher to teach middle school physical science, especially chemistry and physics as taught in our 8th grade course, as well as upper school physics. Our middle school students develop a strong conceptual understanding through the exploration of essential questions, hands-on activities and lab experiences, and real-world data collection. Assignments and activities develop the ability to manipulate equations, graph and analyze data, exercise critical-thinking skills, and create and perform laboratory procedures. The 8th grade course is taught by a team of middle school educators that work closely together to assure students in all sections have a consistent experience. Upper school physics focuses on developing strong mental models of physics and emphasizes learning as a process that involves opportunities to grow and learn from mistakes.
