Job Description:

The Blake School seeks to hire a dynamic teacher, capable of teaching advanced-level physics as well as an Introductory Engineering class to high school students. This is a part-time (0.75FTE), 12-week position that will cover a parenting leave. The ideal candidate will hold a physics degree (advanced degree or work towards an advanced degree preferred) and have classroom experience at the secondary or post-secondary level and familiarity with inquiry-based instruction. Successful candidates will enjoy working with teenagers, have a demonstrated ability to collaborate, and be ready to engage fully with the community-based experience of an independent school. The start date is March 9, 2020 and the position will continue through the end of the 2019-20 school year (May 30, 2020). Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes our community strong and empowers students to engage productively with those who are different from them. 



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
