Part-time/Adjunct Teachers, Templeton Academy D.C. & Templeton Academy Nashville

Calling all potential stunning colleagues!

Per a blogpost (The #1 Ingredient for a Great Workplace) that our Founder and President penned long ago, we believe that schools are only as effective as the educators in them. And part of the heart of the Templeton Academy model is the ability to attract phenomenal adjunct teaching talent:

Templeton’s block teaching approach (a focus on two academic subjects each 10 week term versus taking eight classes each day for the entire year) enables us to not only hire stunning full-time teachers, but equally stunning part-time teachers as well (eg. the stay at home parent or PhD candidate for whom teaching full-time for an entire year is untenable).”

Might this be you? If so, please know that we are seeking part-time teachers in all disciplines for the coming school year.

Qualifications

  • Life long learner for whom teaching is the way to use their gifts in a way that brings them joy and serves others
  • Outstanding expertise in subject instruction
  • A belief that wrestling with big questions is more important than reciting correct answers.
  • Innovative curriculum delivery
  • Ability to provide effective experiential learning
  • Evidence of cooperative initiatives
  • Effective communication skills
  • Ability to collaborate with colleagues

This is a position for an independent learner who is committed to student-centered, experiential learning; someone who likes to experiment, evaluate and improve on everything they do; someone who has a deep respect for all young people; someone who has empathy for the challenges they face in their lives.
