Throughout North America there is a serious need for Latin Teachers. Each year, for lack of teachers, existing programs are canceled, thriving programs are told they cannot expand, and schools that want to add Latin are unable to do so. PromoteLatin.org is a cooperative effort with the American Classical League, the American Philological Association, and various regional and state classical organization.
All recruitment information is also posted on the Classics bulletin board in Grosvenor House.
Classical Language Faculty (Posted October 12, 2012)
We will have an opening in Classics beginning 2013-2014. Successful candidates must demonstrate experience and skill in Latin as well as enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring young people. An advanced degree in the field is desirable, as is the ability to teach Greek and to coach. Latin at Episcopal is required in seventh and eighth grade and continues through Advanced Placement in the eleventh grade and honors Latin 5 in twelfth; Greek is taught in four levels from ninth through twelfth grade. Thus a team player who enjoys working with others in coordinating multi-section courses is essential. The Classics department takes a grammar-based approach to the languages. Advising and other duties for this position will be housed in the Middle School and candidates should show a facility and enthusiasm for working with middle school students. Members of the department teach at all levels and teaching duties each year will be split between the two divisions (Middle and Upper Schools).
Please send a letter describing your commitment and approach to classical language teaching, a résumé, and recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org ,by mail to The Episcopal Academy, Attn: Faculty Recruitment, 1785 Bishop White Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073 or via fax to 484-424-1606.
STA is the oldest teacher-placement service in America. We receive job listings from hundreds of PK-12 private schools around the South. Schools come to STA because they recognize the value of STA’s help in recruiting & screening talented candidates.
S.T.A. has several Latin vacancies listed for the 2013-14 academic year. These jobs range from teaching beginning Latin in the middle grades through AP Latin.
Certification is not required by private schools for most Latin teaching positions.
For most middle- and high-school Latin positions, a bachelor’s degree with a major in Latin or Classical Studies (or at least a minor in these fields) is essential, but teacher certification is not. Candidates should have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Candidates’ knowledge of Latin grammar and pedagogical techniques will be assessed by an experience AP Latin teacher. Some of these positions require prior teaching experience.
Interested candidates should apply to Southern Teachers Agency. The process consists of completing an online STA application, sending a credentials file, and participating in a telephone interview. A formal language assessment will also be given during the application process.
For more information about the Southern Teachers Agency, please contact Lorri Freitas, Director of Teacher Placement.
