Moses Brown School
Location: Providence, Rhode Island
Type: Part Time
Salary: Based on Experience
4 Year Degree
Internal Number: JOB#: USMATH-001
Responsibilities: Moses Brown seeks a part-time (.5 FTE) math teacher, able to teach high school grades 9-12. The successful applicant will teach 2 sections of math each semester that may range from Algebra 1 to Advanced Placement courses in Calculus and Statistics, to Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra. The ability to teach a wide range of topics and ages is desirable, but not required; there is some flexibility in course assignments.
Working collaboratively with other members of the math department is important to our school culture. In addition, teachers work closely with students outside of the classroom during office hours and for occasional extra help outside of these times.
In addition to the core teaching responsibilities, Moses Brown teachers have yearly co-curricular responsibilities. All Upper School faculty are asked to lead an advisory starting in their second year at the school. Teachers are expected to serve on committees, and attend school meetings, some of which take place after school.
Qualifications: Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a four-year accredited institution. Two to five years of teaching experience is preferred, although not a requirement for application. Master’s degree or beyond is desirable.
We seek candidates who are passionate about their desire to teach, advise, and learn from high school students and who have experience supporting students with diverse identities and backgrounds to be confident and skillful math learners. We value experience teaching in a distance learning format or experience designing education for a digital platform and the flexibility those skill sets can offer. Candidates should be eager to embrace and forward the Quaker mission of the school.
Compensation: Compensation is competitive and based on education and number of years of experience. The school offers a competitive package of benefits to its faculty and staff, including vacation, occasional absence days, health insurance, retirement plan, and tuition remission toward enrollment at MB.
To apply: The MB upper school is increasing sections of teaching this year across five departments, offering multiple teaching possibilities. Applicants may apply for one part-time role in one department, or might consider combining opportunities in two departments, if qualified and interested, to approach full-time status.
Please submit a resume, cover letter that serves as a statement of interest, and the names and contact information for 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is very important that you indicate the job number (USMATH-001) in the subject line of the email.
If you are applying for more than one part-time role, please be sure to indicate that in the subject line of your email (i.e. USMATH-001 & USSCI-001) and in your cover letter. Please also indicate if you are open to a part-time role or only to a full-time, cross-departmental role.
Once we have read and discussed applications in late February, we will be in touch with select candidates to arrange interviews.

The student experience is incredibly varied, including 17 musical and performance groups across the school, 50 clubs and activities, and 63 athletic teams competing in 17 different sports. And while individual achievement is celebrated, learning at Moses Brown is a shared enterprise. We foster a close sense of community, evident in collaborative relationships between students and teachers and in our weekly meeting for worship.
Our diverse community is strong enough to hold hundreds of brilliant, unique, independent-minded people. With $7 million awarded annually in need-based financial aid, Moses Brown partners with many families to make a shared investment in bright, caring, and thoughtful children from all socioeconomic backgrounds.
