Job Description:

The Blake School seeks to hire a dynamic Latin teacher for grades 9-12, capable of teaching all levels of Upper School Latin, for the 2020-21 school year.  The ideal candidate is an accomplished teacher of Latin with student-centered pedagogy and successful classroom experience. We are looking for a candidate who is familiar with current teaching and learning research – including Standards for Classical Language Learning and Comprehensible Input — involved in ongoing professional development and experienced with effective use of established and emergent technologies, preferably in a 1:1 environment. Because this position requires collaborative work with faculty in and out of the Modern and Classical Languages Department, excellent interpersonal skills are a must. Successful candidates will be positive, enthusiastic and proactive educators with a passion for working with adolescents and supporting them in developing a high level of proficiency in Latin. 

Additional duties will include advising students, holding conferences with students and parents, active engagement in the work of the department and participation in department, division and all-school initiatives. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible position. Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes a community strong and empowers students to engage across differences. Blake offers highly competitive salary and benefits packages, as well as significant support for local and national professional development opportunities.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications December 2. Blake will typically cover the travel and lodging costs for finalist candidates visiting from out of town.


Experience and Skills:

The Blake School is a pre-kindergarten through grade 12, co-educational, nonsectarian, independent day school enrolling 1,367 bright, talented students from nearly 56 Twin Cities-area communities. Founded in 1900, The Blake School has the advantage of three campuses (Minneapolis, Hopkins and Wayzata) each with its own facilities designed for specific ages, schedules and activities. The mission of the school is to provide students with an excellent, academically challenging education in a diverse and supportive community committed to a common set of values.

The Blake School believes that a diverse society enriches all individuals and communities. Diversity of race, ethnicity, national origin, geography, religion, gender, affectional or sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and marital, parental or economic status forms the fabric of our society. As a result of these beliefs, The Blake School actively seeks students, families and employees who value and contribute to the fullness of a diverse community within the context of its mission. In doing so, we recognize our responsibility to help make each person's experience a success. EOE
