ABOUT US: Oregon Episcopal School occupies a wooded 59 acre campus where 880 students in Pre-K through 12th Grade share an excellent faculty, an inquiry based curriculum, and a strong sense of community. The School values employees who seek to continually develop the OES Essential Competencies in themselves and others and are prepared to engage in a vibrant, culturally diverse learning community.

The baseline role will teach 2-3 sections of 9th grade health and human development each semester, serve as an advisor for 6-8 students, and lead a co-curricular Activity.

In any version of this role, the successful candidate will be an experienced high school educator with an expertise in and knowledge of health and wellness curricula, as well as an innovator looking to create transformative and empowering experiences for young adults. A particular interest in and experience with 9th and 10th graders is a plus.
