Classics Teacher (Upper School)
St. Albans School of Washington, D.C., is seeking a full-time Latin instructor to begin in Fall 2019. St. Albans’ classics program is traditional and rigorous, aiming to prepare students to read such authors as Caesar, Cicero, Pliny, Ovid, and Vergil in the third and fourth years of study. The position involves teaching three to four sections of Latin to upper- and middle-school students—at any level through AP—as well as possibly teaching an Ancient Greek or a classics-related elective. Strong candidates will exhibit content mastery, including a comprehensive background in Latin grammar and literature; an ability to teach history and culture in a variety of Latin courses; an eagerness to cultivate a sense of the enduring value of the classical tradition in young learners; strong organizational and classroom management skills; and a willingness to be an active member of the language department and school community. The ability to teach Ancient Greek, as well as to offer other classically-related interdisciplinary electives, is a distinct advantage. Other duties may include advising students, coaching, or contributing to some other extracurricular activity. A bachelor’s degree and classroom experience are required, an advanced degree in Latin or classics preferred.
