At Chapin, the new teacher is seen as a valuable resource, a person who can open eyes and minds to innovation.
While the hiring season in independent schools typically begins in February or March, when we learn of our needs for the following school year, Chapin is eager to receive letters of interest and résumés from qualified candidates seeking teaching positions for 2019-20.
If you are an energetic, committed educator with an equal passion for your subject area and for teaching girls, we are keen to hear from you. Let us know about your teaching philosophy, your experience inside and out of the classroom, and why Chapin might be the right match for you. Chapin actively seeks educators of diverse backgrounds, interests, and talents who are able to transmit their knowledge with enthusiasm to students.
Candidates should have an interest in contributing to the growth and development of each individual student and to the overall quality of school life. Qualifications vary with different positions and within the three divisions of the school. Teachers with diverse interests and talents outside their classroom subject bring strength and flexibility to our academic program.
Chapin believes strongly in offering professional development programs for its teachers, and staff members have the opportunity to learn both from their colleagues and from external programs and mentors. The wide range of classes, extracurricular activities, and personal development programs that Chapin offers its students also allows teachers to stretch and develop their own skills and experiences.
Chapin is committed to diversity in its culture, curriculum and program. Believing that an equitable, inclusive community is essential to learning, Chapin actively seeks families, faculty and staff who bring a range of experiences to the school. Chapin embraces and respects differences in age, ethnicity, gender, learning style, physical ability, race, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic class. Expecting and requiring respect for others are hallmarks of our educational process
