Great teachers don’t just teach what they know; they teach who they are. Heritage Hall fosters an environment that champions educators and cultivates community. We seek an enthusiastic, collaborative, relationship-oriented Upper School Biology and Chemistry teacher who wants to work amongst educators who embrace the school’s Charger Code, a pledge “to learn with honor, lead with courage, and serve with compassion.”
In the Upper School, we pride ourselves on creating an individualized educational experience for each student by identifying and building on their talents and interests. Throughout a challenging four years, our role is to recognize how our students learn best and prepare them to excel at the university level. We challenge students to find innovative solutions to complex problems and develop critical thinking skills that will serve them in leadership roles, future educational endeavors, and professions that may not even exist yet.
Educators live their “best teacher life” at Heritage Hall. Small class sizes, excellent resources, and the freedom to teach who you are set the stage for talented faculty to shine and, by extension, for students to succeed.
98% of Heritage Hall employees surveyed would recommend our school to other gifted educators.
We hire faculty from diverse experiences and backgrounds because our students need to know that heroes don’t have a common origin story. We are committed to an inclusive school community because that’s the world we want our students to build.
Heritage Hall supports all employees with opportunities for professional development, resources for well-being such as health, vision, dental, life, and long-term disability insurance(s), paid short-term leave, free after-school care for children, and faculty priority for tuition assistance.
