Middle School Science Teacher

Middle School Science Teacher

 

Overview 

AIM Academy is excited to announce the opening of a Middle School Science teaching position for the fall of 2021. AIM’s Middle School is an innovative and collaborative environment where teachers have smaller than usual caseloads so they can focus on the individual needs of students. Teaching faculty in the Middle School enjoy a good deal of autonomy in the material they teach as well as very well-developed support structures to employ key research based practices for the instruction in the sciences. Middle School science courses are lab-based, and there is a strong emphasis on experiential learning, arts-integration, and field work.  Candidates should be comfortable designing their own curriculum and also open to collaboration and support from the greater instructional team at AIM. The scope and sequence covered in the middle school science curriculum includes topics within Earth and space science, life science, physical science and environmental science. 

 

The department is supported by a team of instructional leaders, speech language pathologists, and very knowledgeable administrators. An ideal candidate will have experience teaching Science to students with language based learning differences like dyslexia and dysgraphia as well as working with students who may have processing or attention issues. The ideal candidate will also understand how to marry explicit instruction with a college preparatory scope and sequence. Those with specific degrees or training in our niche field are highly desirable, but that is not required. AIM’s Institute for Learning and Research will provide a myriad of opportunities for professional development prior to the opening of the school year.
