Overview

AIM Academy is excited to announce a position for an innovative, artistic, and intellectually curious educator to join our Middle School Interactive Humanities Team. Interactive Humanities, a cornerstone of the AIM experience, is a thematically rich and academically rigorous element of each student’s day that incorporates the interdisciplinary exploration of civics, geography, history, literature in an immersive, small group, project-based learning environment. AIM is currently seeking an experienced and engaging teacher to lead 7th and 8th Grade Interactive Humanities Classes, which focus on history and culture from the discovery of the Americas to the Civil Rights movement.  

The Interactive Humanities department is supported by a team of instructional leaders, speech language pathologists, and knowledgeable administrators. An ideal candidate will have experience teaching history, social studies, civics, government, literature and geography skills to students with language based learning differences like dyslexia and dysgraphia.
