Computer Science/Technology Teaching Jobs

Education is constantly evolving, changing, and maturing as societies and cultures develop.

Over the last few decades, the rise in new technology — and the effects technology have on education — has been staggering. Toddlers who can barely speak are adept at using iPads; young children are more computer-literate than their parents; teenagers are writing code and building websites. If you are excited by the possibilities computer science and technology produce for education and for our country's future, then you might consider a position as a computer science teacher or technology director in an independent school.

Teaching Computer Science and Directing Technology at an Independent School

The innovation and advancement that have defined the childhood years of the new millennium have produced an enhanced computer science and technology curriculum in independent schools. Education extends beyond the computer lab; increasingly, schools employ leaders who can help teachers integrate technology into daily classroom life. Our client independent schools are always looking to hire knowledgeable, innovative computer science teachers as well as directors of technology who can support the technology plans of the entire school.

I'll keep this brief, but I just wanted to say that Scott Roy is doing a fantastic job. He keeps my preferences in mind, never seems to drop the ball (even though we've got at least 5 irons in the fire at all times), and works tirelessly. It's pretty rare to see someone that is both effective and pleasant. Scott's been great. As a technical manager, I've been working with placement companies (both in and out of education) for 20 years -- he's by far the best I've dealt with.

Thanks again for everything you do.
