My school is looking to hire a new upper school math teacher beginning in the 2018 – 2019 academic year. I am in my eighth year here as chair of the upper school math department at Wyoming Seminary. We are located in northeastern PA right across the river from Wilkes-Barre. We are a preK through post-grad school on two separate campuses. The young ones – including my two children – are on our lower school campus located about three miles away from our upper school. My son, by the way, will be at our upper school next year. I am equally anxious and excited about this development. Our upper school is a 9 – post grad school that is a mix of day and boarding students. We have three dorms on campus and a number of faculty also live in campus housing. I lived in a boys’ dorm with my family for six years before moving into a campus home. We have a wonderfully diverse student body both in terms of where they come from – we have over twenty countries represented in our high school student body – and what their interests/talents are. We have nationally recognized athletes, we have top notch artists, we have stunning scholars. We have kids who LOVE math and are in Calculus as freshmen. We have kids who dread it and are in Algebra II as seniors. I firmly believe that all of these kids have meaningfully experiences and they grow as students while they are here. We are losing one of our valued members of the upper school faculty and I am sad to see him go. However, this is the time for me to look ahead and dream about what a new colleague can bring to our school. If you are reading this and are contemplating a change of scenery for next year, please reach out to me in the comments here or through twitter where I am @mrdardy or simply write to my work email. If you are reading this and you know someone who might be a great fit, pass this info along.
