Grammar School Teacher

Jonathan Edwards Classical Academy

4479 Jackson Rd, Whites Creek, Tennessee 37189

Position Description

The ideal teaching candidate will be a continuous learner who embraces the ethos of the Classical, Christian model of education. Teachers are expected consistently to exhibit love, joy, peace, and spiritual maturity before students and the rest of the school. They are expected to model the virtue of a classical student by exhibiting a love for learning and reading.  They are to share knowledge in order to promote student success and involve parents in the learning process. Fostering a collegial spirit and collaboration with other employees in order to maximize interdependence, strength, and cohesive partnership under the authority of the mission of the school is critically important.  They must present curriculum with efficiency and flexibility and maintain a neat, organized, clean, and stimulating classroom environment for students. They must handle most discipline problems in the classroom and instruct while utilizing the objectives, materials, priorities, and methods prescribed in the appropriate curriculum documents. An ideal candidate must reflect honestly on their shortcomings that need to be addressed.  They should compare ERB test scores with previous student work to determine patterns in order to fine tune delivery while embracing the fact that not all knowledge can be demonstrated on a standardized exam.
