Middle School English Teacher

Middle School English Faculty, Medical Leave Replacement 2019-20 School Year

The Meadowbrook School of Weston, a pre-kindergarten through 8th grade school located seven
miles west of Boston, seeks a middle school English educator to join our faculty starting in
August 2019. This position is a leave replacement position; the position will begin in August and
go through April 1, 2020, with the potential to be extended to the end of the year on an as-
needed basis.

We seek candidates with teaching experience to teach three courses for grades 6, 7 and 8. The
texts we study as a part of the middle school English curriculum include: Golding's Lord of the
Flies, Wiesel's Night, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth, and Twelfth Night,
Knowles' A Separate Peace, Cisneros’s The House on Mango Street, and two poetry units. The
skills we seek to cultivate in students include: analytical writing, active reading, Harkness-style
discussion, and creative writing in a range of genres. A bachelor's degree in a relevant field is
required; a master's degree is preferred. Familiarity with classroom uses of technology is a plus.
Experience writing recommendations for secondary school is preferred but not required. The
English department is dynamic and collegial, working collaboratively, devoted to the study of
literature and writing.

We seek a candidate who believes the middle school years are essential and who
wholeheartedly desires to teach, advise, and learn from middle school students. Teachers with
coaching experience are encouraged to apply. At Meadowbrook, smart, passionate people join
together in an expansive learning environment with rigorous academics and innovative curricula
to inspire, challenge, and empower students to achieve at the highest level, connect deeply with
a diverse community, and courageously create change.

We strongly encourage applications from people of color, LGBTQ educators, or educators from
communities that are historically underrepresented in independent schools. We are committed
to an inclusive school experience for all those who come to work at Meadowbrook.

Candidates should e-mail application materials, including a cover letter and resume to
msenglish@meadowbrook-ma.org.
