Maybeck High School: 60% Art Teacher

 

Maybeck High School, a small, independent, teacher-run, college-preparatory high school in Berkeley, seeks an 60% art teacher for the 2019-2020 school year.  Our art classes are semester long courses, with two courses in the fall and two in the spring, to students in grades 9-12.  We especially seek applicants who can teach topics, regions, or approaches that have been traditionally underrepresented or marginalized.   

 

Candidates who are able to teach in other subject areas, especially math or science, have the possibility of a full-time position.    

 

The ideal candidate will have genuine excitement about teaching, a strong commitment to equity, desire to work closely with students of diverse backgrounds, a bachelor’s degree, and relevant teaching experience.  A teaching credential is not required for this position.

 

Responsibilities of Maybeck employees include:

·       Work with another staff member to design & run a 10-day intersession course in April; some programs are local and during school hours; others travel regionally and internationally.  

·       Attend our all-school camping trips: a four night cabin camping trip in August and a two or three night tent camping trip in May.

·       Participate in a teacher-led school, including staff meetings, committees, and school events.

 

Maybeck’s Mission: We are a vibrant community dedicated to learning, where all forms of diversity can flourish amid mutual support, respect, and responsibility. Through our small classes, high expectations, academic excellence, and programs outside the school, students prepare for college and acquire the tools to engage actively and creatively in the wider world.

 

Salary based on experience; starting salary for full-time faculty is 65-75K, with annual increases
