Milton Academy, a K-12 independent boarding and day school just outside of Boston, seeks immediate leave coverage for an in-person Latin teacher in the Middle School. The position consists of 3 Latin classes (6th, 7th, & 8th grade). We are looking for teachers who are deeply committed to teaching and working with the middle school age group and have a passion for teaching Latin. In addition to outstanding teaching ability, we seek teachers who are inquisitive, self-directed, team-oriented, and dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The Classics Department uses a mixture of traditional grammar-translation and active Latin approaches in the Middle School and the curriculum iterates each year on basics but changes textbooks to keep things fresh; the 6th graders have Cambridge, the 7th is in Ecce, and the 8th uses Latin for the New Millenium. Milton Academy has a number of COVID-19 safety protocols in place, including weekly testing of all students and faculty.
Qualified candidates will possess excellent communication and writing skills, and proficiency with technology is assumed. Flexibility, creativity, a sense of humor, a strong work ethic and a commitment to being a strong team member are all critically important. Demonstrated ability working in a diverse community is essential. Teacher certification is not required. Please direct any inquiries to Jesse Sawyer, Classics Department Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
