HS2 Summer Program- Chemistry Teacher

February 18, 2020 - May 1, 2020

Each summer, the (HS)² Program at Colorado Rocky Mountain School hires teachers to lead courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and English. In addition to teaching responsibilities in the classroom, teachers are also asked to support students in Study Hall three nights per week. Additionally, some teachers serve as mentors to a Teaching Assistant. (HS)² teachers do not have any dormitory duties during the summer, however, they are asked to chaperone students on one off-campus trip and one on-campus social event. (HS)2 teachers are hired to teach one or two courses which meet for 110 minutes each per day, Monday through Friday.

Qualifications: Strong teaching candidates have significant teaching experience, a mastery of one of the (HS)² subjects, and genuinely enjoy working with high school students. Salary is commensurate with teaching experience.

(HS)² third-year students will arrive on campus Saturday, June 20 for a leadership seminar, and first and second-year students will arrive on Monday, June 22. All students depart campus on Saturday, July 25.
