Long-Term Substitute Teacher (Upper School Social Sciences)

National Cathedral School announces a search for a long-term substitute teacher in the History/Social Sciences Department of its Upper School (grades 9 to 12) beginning mid-January through June 2021. The Social Science curriculum includes Modern World History (9th grade), World Geography (10th grade), US History (11th grade), and a variety of electives. Primary-source driven, our curriculum focuses on the development of students’ analytical thinking, critical reading, and persuasive writing skills. Qualified candidates should hold at least a Bachelor’s degree in history; a Master’s degree is preferred.

Candidates should be comfortable teaching remotely as well as in the classroom and have experience with remote-learning technologies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, National Cathedral School has worked to deliver consistent instruction to its students while implementing measures to keep members of the community as safe as possible. At present, National Cathedral School is employing a blended-learning model of instruction in which the student population is divided into two cohorts, with each cohort on campus during alternate weeks. Except for designated all-remote days, faculty members teach from the school campus where they manage the educational experience for both cohorts. School begins at 7:45 a.m., and a teacher’s day is generally finished around 4:00 p.m. Faculty are occasionally asked to report earlier or stay later for staff meetings or support school needs. Salary is competitive, based on experience. 
National Cathedral School serves 585 students in grades 4 through 12. Students thrive in an intellectual environment and love to be challenged. NCS graduates are recognized as highly motivated and confident. Faculty and staff maintain a lively conversation about the meaning of all-girls education, an interest in pedagogy, and innovative uses of technology. As an Episcopal school, NCS welcomes people of all backgrounds and faiths while maintaining a close identity with Washington National Cathedral's commitment to be a house of prayer for all people. Located in Northwest Washington on 59 beautiful acres, the Cathedral Close is also home to St. Albans School and Beauvoir: The National Cathedral Elementary School.
NCS is committed to leadership in multicultural education and a culturally diverse faculty and staff. The school therefore seeks applications from candidates who will contribute to an atmosphere in which all are valued and supported.
Interested candidates should send an electronic application that includes a brief cover letter, résumé, and the names and contact information of three to five references.
