Math Teacher

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department has an opening for a highly-qualified and innovative math teacher who is deeply knowledgeable about mathematics. The primary responsibilities include providing appropriate learning environments for students in grades 6 – 12 as they work through the mathematics curriculum.

Greenhills math and computer science teachers believe in a standards-based, integrated, problem driven approach to teaching and learning math; use appropriate technology (including Desmos, calculators, Geometer’s Sketchpad, statistical software and web-based technologies); and collaborate within the department and with other disciplines to provide real-world experience with problem solving in addition to rigorous experience with the skills necessary for success in mathematics at the college level. Teachers are expected to be competent with all of the strands of the Mathematics curriculum, including Statistics, Geometry, Calculus, and the mathematics of Finance.

Greenhills School is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities. We want a diverse mix of talented people who want to join us as student centered educators and role models who bring joy and good humor to our classrooms, fields, and offices, work collaboratively with colleagues, seek and respond to student feedback, and commit to reflective practice and continual growth. We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming inclusive community.

  • Create inclusive, effective and curious classroom environments and provide learning support for students inside and outside of the classroom as needed, including implementing formal accommodations, in consultation with the Greenhills Learning Center.

    • knowledgeable about adolescents’ intellectual, social, and emotional development and willing to positively greet the challenges and opportunities they present,
    • a professional oral and written communicator,
    • eager to work collaboratively with colleagues on curriculum design, pedagogy, and assessments.
