Middle School Social Studies Teacher: Sabbatical Coverage

Milton Academy, established in 1798, is an independent coeducational national boarding and day school, serving 1,000 students in grades K-12 on a 125 acre campus eight miles south of Boston.

Milton Academy seeks a half-year sabbatical leave coverage for a grade six social studies position in the Middle School for the first half of the 2019-2020 school year. 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 social studies. A bachelor’s degree is required and a concentration in history is expected. A minimum of three years of teaching experience at the middle or secondary level is required. Additional duties typically include advising, sponsoring a club or activity and participating in faculty meetings and professional development.

The sixth-grade social studies program focuses on human origins, diversity of indigenous peoples, and modern migration, emigration, and immigration. Students learn to think like social scientists -- archaeologists, anthropologists, philosophers, and psychologists -- as they connect history with science.  Connecting with social studies teachers in the Middle School and coordination and collaboration with the sixth-grade team on grade-level projects is central to the role.

Qualified candidates will possess excellent communication and writing skills and proficiency with technology is assumed. Flexibility, creativity, a sense of humor, and 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.
