Description

Jackson Hole Classical Academy seeks a humanities teacher able to teach a variety of grade levels. The ideal candidate will specialize in 6th–8th grade literature and history classes, but also be able to teach at other levels. The ability to teach other subjects, especially Latin, math or science is desirable. As a young, growing school, we seek candidates who are committed to using their talents to help establish our school. As a school dedicated to Christian, classical liberal arts education, we seek a candidate who understands our mission and is committed to furthering this mission through excellent instruction, strong classroom management, and a commitment to student formation.

A humanities candidate will have the following skills, credentials, and expertise:

  • Mastery of age-appropriate pedagogical techniques
  • Understanding of the aims, spirit, and methods of classical education
  • Strong classroom management skills
  • A desire and ability to cultivate strong, collaborative relationships with colleagues, students, and families

Experience with Charlotte Mason’s approach to habit formation is preferred, but not required.

The curriculum at JH Classical Academy is in the classical liberal arts tradition. The Academy believes that each student is created in the image and likeness of God and that the pursuit of truth always begins with a sense of wonder. As educators, we seek “to cultivate within our students the wisdom and virtue necessary to discover and fulfill their God-given potential and contribute to a flourishing and free society.”

Jackson Hole, gateway to both Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, offers unparalleled scenic beauty. Weekend and summer recreation opportunities abound. The attractiveness of Jackson makes housing difficult to find, so the Academy assists in that search.

If you would like to be considered for the Humanities Teacher position, please submit a cover letter, resume, and Initial Inquiry: Faculty form to careers@jhclassical.org. This position is open for the 2022–23 school year.
