North Shore Country Day School, a JK-12 independent school near Chicago, seeks candidates for a physical education teacher position.
The incoming teacher will work with students across JK-12 and teach a combination of physical education, health, and sports performance classes. North Shore is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities.
While a bachelor’s degree in physical education, kinesiology, exercise science, or an equivalent is required, a master’s degree in education is preferred. Candidates should have two or more years of teaching experience, a grounding in the functional philosophy, and the ability to coach two or more seasons of sports offered by the School. Ideal candidates will have a track record of being passionate advocates for their students, effective classroom managers, and cultivators of the ‘growth mindset.’ They must also demonstrate excellent written and oral communication skills, a commitment to being a collaborative, valued colleague and a history of engaging in opportunities to support their ongoing professional development.
North Shore offers competitive salaries that are commensurate with experience. Additionally, North Shore provides an excellent employee benefits program, including health and retirement benefits, tuition support for children’s attendance at North Shore, and professional development funding to support summer study, attendance at conferences/workshops, travel, and advanced degree work.
