Math Teacher

11/13/18

The Math Teacher is a full-time residential faculty member responsible for all aspects of the Oxbow math program, from curriculum design to implementation and grading. Because Oxbow is an immersive one-semester program, students come to the math program with a wide range of math experience and needs. The Math Teacher is also expected to work with students, parents, and sending school math departments in placing Oxbow students in the correct math class. This involves communicating with these constituents before and during a student’s enrollment at Oxbow. Oxbow is a boarding school that welcomes students from a range of backgrounds; this position carries important residential responsibilities that relate to community building, advising, and overall supervision of student safety and welfare.

RESPONSIBILITIES

Math

  • Implement an innovative curriculum that covers topics found in traditional high school junior/senior year math courses: Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus (including AP levels), and Statistics
  • Coach students through an independent, research-based project that applies mathematical concepts to “real world” problems
  • Administer homework, tests, and quizzes
  • Assess student work with a letter grade and narrative feedback (at the mid-term and final)
  • Hold weekly office hours for 1:1 supplemental tutoring sessions
  • Correspond with students, parents, and sending school math departments to place Oxbow students in the appropriate math level

Faculty

  • The full-time faculty workload consists of: teaching a combination of classes; leading weekly exercise activities; supervising students with regularly scheduled duty rotations in the evening and on the weekends; and fulfilling some administrative responsibilities. The final determination of the workload will be made by the Head of School in accordance with the needs of the curricular demands and the overall schedule.
  • In addition to the teaching workload, all full-time faculty members are expected to serve as an advisor and participate in field trips and community building activities.
  • Faculty members are expected to attend weekly staff meetings, the off-campus student retreat weekend, and orientation meetings. Summer vacation begins one full week after the conclusion of the Spring semester. Returning faculty are expected to report to work, following summer vacation, one full week prior to the start of the Fall semester.
  • The person who best fits this role is someone who has a solid background in math, strong interpersonal skills, and is genuinely invested in working with creative adolescents and colleagues in a boarding school setting. The period of employment is for the entire academic year (mid-August to June 1st).
  • Salary is commensurate with experience. Full-time faculty live on-campus in housing provided by the School.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Michael Williamson, Head of School at mwilliamson@oxbowschool.org. Please do not call.
