1-year Physics Teacher, Deerfield Academy, MA

Deerfield Academy seeks an innovative and energetic person to fill the position of Teacher of Physics, a full-time, year-round position available for August 15 start. Were looking for teachers who love and excel at their subjects, care deeply about students, work collaboratively with their colleagues, and are deeply committed to developing an inclusive community.  As a private boarding school, Deerfields offers an outstanding teaching environment, great benefits, and students who are eager to learn.  Deerfield actively seeks to increase the diversity of its faculty.
Deerfield offers an unmatched environment for teaching.  Near the Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire College, and UMass Amherst), Deerfields 300-acre campus hosts exceptional facilities that enable powerful teaching both in and out of the classroom. Our students are engaging and excited to learn—and they are willing to work hard at their studies. Outside the classroom, our community is focused on active and ethical living.
Our teachers are committed to ongoing renewal. We seek candidates who are genuinely committed to their own growth, who are eager to work with colleagues to review the curriculum and programs we offer, and who can foster critical thinking, empathy, and determination in our students. As a boarding school, our faculty teach, mentor, and model—in the classroom, in the dorm, at the dining hall, and on the playing field.
Diversity is essential to Deerfields success. Diverse perspectives within our school population fuel creative and innovative thinking, build empathy and consideration, and provide varied skills and experiences from which the entire community can benefit. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and educational background.

  • The primary classroom responsibility is to teach high school physics for all levels of students from an introductory, inquiry-based freshman course to AP Physics C, and potentially a year-long project/research course of your specialty and choosing. Project courses may include astronomy, biomechanics, engineering, physics, or related topics.  Typically, teachers would lead two sections each of two courses.  Each class meets four times per week.
  • Other responsibilities for this position are unique to a boarding school commitment.  Typically, those duties would include dormitory residence or association, coaching, dining hall duty, committee work, and other routine duties, but specific assignments vary for each member of our faculty, depending on preference and fit.
  • Prior teaching experience in Physics is required; a master's degree in Physics is preferred. 
  • Candidates must possess the interest, initiative, and energy to thrive with a lively and fast-paced workplace, a genuine appreciation of adolescents, a sense of humor, and the ability to work as part of a team.
  • The desire to live and work in a residential academic community is essential.
