Upper School Science Teacher


Position Type Teacher
School Name Catlin Gabel School
City, State Portland, OR 
Posted 02/23/2021

Position Title: Upper School Science Teacher

Department: Upper School

Reports to: Upper School Head


Break away from your day-to-day grind and once again love your work. We are a private school set up like a college campus in a beautiful, park-like setting in the West Hills of Portland. We educate over 600 children, pre-school through 12th grade. We welcome and value employees with diverse life experience.

Our Upper School is seeking a Science Teacher for our 9th and 10th grade students. The person in this role will teach biology, chemistry and physics in our foundational ninth and tenth grade classes, as well as offers an advanced level elective course in their area of subject expertise. Additionally, they are comfortable teaching skills-based science, ideally but not necessarily through Next Generation Science Standards.

Complementing these skills should be a desire to teach students who encompass a range of academic abilities and an excitement about helping students build self-confidence through successful exploration and discovery.
