Position Description
Wooster School seeks a Math teacher with a strong background in primarily middle but also, as a plus, upper division mathematics (pre-algebra through as much of algebra I, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, and calculus as possible). This role will likely involve some work with students both in our mainstream and in our Bridge Program, a program designed for students with language-based learning disabilities. The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree, teaching experience at the Middle and Upper School levels, and a capacity, flexibility, and desire to teach across grade levels and divisions. Candidates should be curious students of the art and science of teaching and learning, particularly in the context of competency-based education and personalized instruction. They should demonstrate a flexible, positive, and a can-do disposition, and should have experience and be interested in innovative math teaching and the use of technology.
Founded in 1926, Wooster School, a co-educational, K-12, college preparatory day school with an enrollment of approximately 375 students. The School is located in Danbury, Connecticut and, by design, educates a diverse population of students in terms of academic ability, socioeconomic background, and ethnicity. Wooster is a member of the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools and the National Association of Independent Schools.
While Wooster’s traditions of self-help and relationship-building have long been recognized as strengths, our more recent commitment to innovative approaches to teaching and learning are making us a leader in the independent school world. We are committed to a learner-centered environment for our students, and to exploring the full potential of competency-based and personalized teaching and learning.

The Role
Full-time Wooster teachers:
  • Teach four to five sections
  • Participate in our advisory program
  • Play a role in our afternoon programming
  • Demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning through continued professional development

Salary & Benefits
This is a full-time, exempt position. Salaries are competitive with local independent schools. A competitive benefits package includes retirement, health insurance, tuition remission, short and long-term disability, and life insurance.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, and statement of philosophy to:
Dr. Brian Sullivan, STEM Coordinator
