Position TItle: Science teacher
The Montessori School for Shreveport, is seeking a dynamic science teacher to lead the middle school science program and accompany students on overnight trips, among other duties. The program is a two-year cycle, with Physical Science in Year B and Life Science in Year A, teaching no more than 25 7th and 8th graders all together in one classroom. Next year will be a Year B, so the teacher will be delivering an already-prepared Physical Science curriculum. It is a unique program that allows for close emotional support between students and teachers, and a lot of intellectual freedom in meeting LA’s science standards. Low emphasis on testing, high emphasis on mastery, and close collaboration with the lead teacher are hallmarks of this program.
The right candidate is passionate about working with adolescents first, developing science literacy second.
