Hours: 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Summary

The ELA/Literature Guide is a full-time position responsible for curriculum development and instruction for grades 9–10. This role involves the mentoring, guidance, and assessment of high school students on a college preparatory approach in all aspects of English language and literature. Topics include: the study of literature, writing in a variety of genres (fiction and non-fiction), conducting research, drama, speech, and rhetoric. Emphasis is on seminar discussion and primary sources without reliance on a textbook. This position also includes cultivating, building, and maintaining partnership connections in related organizations in the Houston Museum District and nearby surrounding areas.

Qualifications

The well-grounded candidate will have experience teaching high school students in the subject or related fields. We are looking for happy people who possess deep content-area knowledge, a never-ending passion for personal learning, matched with an exceptional level of positive regard for teenagers and respect for their work. Successful candidates will have an expertise in creatively matching academic and real-world challenges to a variety of student skill levels to create an environment of experiences for maximized engagement. The school is committed to a high level of cross-disciplinary integration and teachers will work closely with each other, meeting regularly to create a dynamic team approach. In addition, we are looking for teachers who have diverse backgrounds and who are ready to teach electives, to travel, and to lead extra-curricular activities aligned with their personal interests.

At the school’s Museum District Campus, the educational approach is largely interdisciplinary and all teachers must possess a facility and strengths beyond a single subject area. Working with high-school-aged Montessori students in small classes means modeling a lifelong love of learning in all areas of knowledge while embracing the service role of teaching. We are looking for happy, well-grounded individuals who are committed to a team-centric organization and who are ready to work hard. Additionally, they must possess serious depth in their specialized field and be able to work in a highly integrated and fluid environment. The Post Oak academic program depends on extending the classroom work through connections and partnerships with local cultural institutions that the teaching faculty are expected to cultivate and maintain.
