Job Description:

The Blake School seeks to hire a dynamic and creative mathematics teacher capable of teaching all levels of Upper School (grades 9-12) math for the 2021-2022 school year. The position is part-time and entails teaching two yearlong courses. The ideal candidate will have an advanced knowledge of mathematics, strong collaboration skills, and a demonstrated commitment to using learner-centered pedagogy, an inquiry-based curriculum and alternative assessments. Opportunities to be an advisor for a small group of students, to chaperone student activities and coach or supervise co-curriculars are also available. All faculty participate in school meetings and divisional/PK-12 events.

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 immediately. 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 1,350 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
