Glen Urquhart School, an independent K-8 day school forty minutes north of Boston, seeks teachers to staff its GAIN@GUS program. Since 2010, GAIN has provided access to academic and recreational summer enrichment at no cost to families for 30 underserved fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh grade students in the cities of Beverly, Lynn, and surrounding North Shore communities. GAIN extends academic skills in math and language arts through classroom and outdoor experiences and off-campus trips. The positions require half day commitments for five weeks. Teachers report to the GAIN Site Director.
We seek motivated and flexible teachers who understand how young people learn and who can work in a shared and cooperative environment. These positions require a bachelor’s degree (master’s degree preferred) and a minimum of two years of classroom experience or equivalent. Candidates should be familiar with the developmental needs of 10-13 year olds as well as the appropriate subject area content. Experience working with underserved populations is valued. Glen Urquhart School seeks candidates who will reflect and support the racial, cultural, and gender diversity of our school community.
