Waterford School is Utah’s premier liberal arts, college-preparatory private school for students in Preschool through High School. Student learning is Waterford School’s reason for being. Since its founding, the School has instilled habits of independent thought, critical thinking, responsibility, passionate learning, and service to others. A commitment to equity, inclusion, and belonging is essential to the Waterford mission. Waterford School’s liberal arts program provides a strong foundation, and the campus culture prepares students to pursue lives of meaning and purpose. Waterford delivers a world-class education distinguished by a rich curriculum, an outstanding faculty, a deep commitment to student growth, and a learning environment that is caring, nurturing, and inspiring.
Waterford School seeks a part-time Latin Teacher. Latin is a required course over the three years of Waterford’s Middle School. The curricular expectation is that training in Latin through the Middle School years will provide a solid foundation for modern language learning and a rich understanding of classical culture, and that it will also facilitate student learning in English and the sciences. Waterford is looking for a teacher who can join an established Middle School Latin program and work well with colleagues to sustain and develop the program into the future.
The ideal candidate would hold an advanced degree in Classics or a related Humanities field, with substantial training in Latin, and would have 2+ years of relevant teaching experience. A full-time course load entails full teaching responsibility for up to four courses, each meeting for seventy-five minutes, two or three times a week. Though this role is part time, we are always interested in candidates who want to invest themselves fully in our community, and there is potential for this to grow to a full-time role for the coming year (especially if applicants can meet other needs listed in our current open positions).
Competencies and Skills Desired
- A desire to collaborate
- Experience in a classroom
- Integrity, professionalism, sound judgment, and emotional intelligence
- Engaging interpersonal skills
- Excellent communication
- Strengths in organization and follow through
The successful candidate will be able to develop a healthy rapport with Faculty, families, work collaboratively with colleagues and will embrace Waterford School’s mission, vision, and values.
