Math Educator

Emergent School is currently seeking to fill the role of math educator for the 2017/18 school year.  These two individuals will lead and oversee the teaching and learning of math and science for students in grades 1-8 (level 1-3).  In collaboration with the Head of School and academic team, these educators will work to ensure our students are undertaking a challenging mathematics and science program.  These individuals must be experienced motivating and inspiring students to excel in these academic areas.

If you enjoy working with young students and their families, have a record of successful teaching in a formal or informal environment, a capacity for working with a range of attention spans, and experience with integrating appropriate educational technologies into a teaching environment, we want to hear from you!   As an integral member of the academic team, you will partner with other educators to build, oversee, and lead the math program at Emergent.  This is a full-time year-round position located in the vibrant Rollingwood neighborhood of Austin, Texas.

About The School

Emergent Academy believes today's students are natural investigators, researchers, and synthesizers of information.
