Science Teaching Jobs

Your heroes are Albert Einstein, Jane Goodall, and Marie Curie.

You are thrilled that, with the advent of new technology and new methods of manipulating information (and a little help from The Big Bang Theory), scientists have become cool. You marvel at how much has been discovered and created in the past decade alone, and you can't wait to continue tapping into the scientific potential of the future. If you want to share your passion for science and are excited about the prospect of teaching the next Steve Jobs or Stephen Hawking, then you might consider a career as a science teacher at an independent school.

Teaching Science at an Independent School

In recent years, science education has developed and expanded, stretching from basic biology, chemistry, and physics to more niche subjects like computer science and robotics. Increasingly, independent schools are adopting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles into their curricula. Science, with its practical applications and emphasis on critical thinking and creativity, is a central part of a 21st century education. Independent schools are looking to hire knowledgeable, forward-thinking science teachers to strengthen the scientific communities in their schools.

Our client schools have science teaching job openings in grades K-12, with particular need for physics teachers, chemistry teachers, and Advanced Placement (AP) teachers.
