The Covenant School seeks a qualified, collegial, and experienced teacher of 7th grade Bible and Logic. In our Bible course, students carefully study the Old Testament from both a historical and literary perspective, seeking to find common themes and messages that create a coherent framework from which to understand the Holy Scriptures. In similar fashion, our Logic course cultivates students’ abilities to discern truth. The focus of Logic I is informal logic and the various ways to develop good arguments and the ways arguments can seem true even when they are not - fallacies. The ideal candidate for this position will be at home in both disciplines, able both to lecture and to lead dialectical investigations and will be an experienced teacher of academic writing. Moreover, all Covenant teachers serve as pastors (shepherds) of our students, advising them in their walk with Jesus Christ.
This is a full-time, ten-month position (exempt), and will report to the Logic School Director.
- Bachelor’s degree or higher in both Bible and Philosophy, or from a program that requires extensive study in both disciplines.
- Proven track record of excellent teaching.
- Experience or interest in classical education and traditional pedagogy.
- Rhetorical excellence in the spoken and written word.
