Job Description

Epiphany School is currently seeking applicants for a full time teaching position in the math and science departments. Potential candidates should have experience teaching math and/or science at the middle school level and be familiar with current teaching practices including the application of new research-based methodologies and classroom technologies ( interactive whiteboard, document camera, use of Chromebooks to deepen and extend learning).

We seek candidates who possess a deep and broad passion for the disciplines of math and science. Candidates must also showa desire to expand and innovate within our curriculum to provide wider options for our students to explore and prepare for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) careers. We are looking for well-rounded, creative and energetic educators. Candidates should be interested in working collaboratively. Successful candidates will not only be flexible, able and willing to teach across the curriculum, but also excited to work with others and to actively pursue professional development during the academic year. We not only seek individuals who exhibit a passion for the education of our young students, a commitment to excellence, and an enthusiasm for working with adolescents, but also, importantly, a healthy perspective and a good sense of humor.

In addition to classroom teaching, Epiphany teachers are asked to mentor Teaching Fellows as well as to serve as an advisor to a small group of students. We ask teachers to participate in the life of the school by attending all-school performances and events and by working our evening program once weekly to provide homework help and support regular evening staff.
Applicants must be willing to make a full commitment to Epiphany’s Mission Statement: Epiphany is an independent school for children of economically-disadvantaged families in Boston with financial aid for all students. We admit children of diverse faiths, races, cultures, and cognitive profiles, believing in the Episcopal tradition that we find God in and through each other, and we challenge our students to discover and develop the fullness of their individual gifts. Epiphany's small classes, individualized curricula, and extended school days provide rigorous academic, moral and social instruction. In close partnership with families, we are an innovative learning community that affords structured support to help students thrive, and together, we are a school that never gives up on a child. Epiphany trains aspiring urban teachers and provides abiding support to its graduates who are prepared to contribute intelligently, morally, and actively to the society they inherit.
