Ridgeview Classical Schools is seeking candidates for a full-time Latin teacher in the Lower School (K-6) beginning in the 2019-20 academic year. The intellectual life of the faculty is particularly rich; it includes a large number of Ph.D. and Masters recipients in both the humanities and sciences who are also dedicated to shaping the hearts and minds of the young. The Department of Classics employs five full-time classicists, and offers a full serving of courses in Latin and Greek.
The Department is dedicated to conversation-based methods of teaching ancient languages, and is one of the only secondary programs in the world that can teach ancient Greek this way. The elementary school Latin program centers on self-expression and guided play. Fluency in speaking Latin is not necessary, but an active interest in learning is a must. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing lessons in conjunction with the department head and other relevant faculty.
To apply, please submit a complete application the Executive Assistant. A complete application includes a Ridgeview Application Form, a resume or CV, a one-page letter of interest, a one-page letter detailing your philosophy of education, reference letters, and copies of transcripts. These materials may be submitted via email to the Executive Assistant.
