Lincoln Academy, in Newcastle, ME seeks a full-time English teacher for the 2020-21 school year. Founded in 1801, LA is an independent Town Academy deeply rooted in the mid-coast communities of central Lincoln County. Serving today as the “high school of record” for eight of these communities, LA currently draws and accepts students from 15 other area towns. In addition to our local students, the school enrolls up to 90 international and domestic boarding students. This results in an exciting range of students, and the school is committed to providing an outstanding education for each of them.
We seek a dynamic English teacher with the flexibility to teach grades 9-12 to a range of learners. We value the mastery of subject matter as well as a passion for helping students to read, write, and think effectively. Teaching assignments this year may include ninth through twelfth grade. Specific teaching assignments may change from year to year. This teacher will join a department of six committed teachers who value a balance of professional autonomy and collaboration.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, faculty members advise a group of students, engage in extracurricular activities, and participate in duties associated with the school’s boarding program. Experience with second language learners is helpful. Evidence of positive, professional relationships with students, colleagues, and parents and a commitment to continued professional development are also important qualifications.
Lincoln Academy is an equal opportunity employer.
