Upper School Math Teacher

The Bryn Mawr School seeks a full time, growth-minded upper school mathematics teacher to begin August, 2022.  Responsibilities include teaching four sections of math, advising a small group of students, and serving as a member of dynamic faculty and departmental teams.  The ideal candidate has a strong educational background with at least 3 – 5 years’ experience teaching upper school math (from Algebra to AP Calculus).  Candidates should have a keen interest in teaching highly motivated girls at a school that values not only intellectual pursuits but also creative expression, the wonder of discovery, and the importance of building strong and inclusive relationships in a highly diverse community.  

The goal of the Bryn Mawr School math curriculum is to develop in our students an understanding and love of mathematics, with a vision for its importance and relevance in our increasingly technologically sophisticated world. Our curriculum focuses on understanding mathematical concepts and applying mathematical skills to the logical and critical thinking processes involved in problem solving and real-life situations. Through exploring ideas both with and without the aid of various technologies, students gain an insight into the historical foundations of mathematics and the excitement of mathematical discovery. We are searching for an excellent communicator who is comfortable using a variety of pedagogical strategies and enjoys working creatively and collaboratively to develop and plan curricula.
 
We welcome the perspectives and experience of people from diverse backgrounds and consider a diverse faculty essential to offering our students an outstanding educational experience. Opportunities to participate in extracurricular programs (athletics, arts, after school programming, etc.) are available.
 
Qualified candidates should send a resume, personal statement, and contact information for three references to Elaine Swyryn, Associate Head of School, at resumes@brynmawrschool.org.  Please enter “US Math” in the subject line.
