At St. John the Evangelist School our student body is highly engaged, and our parents are very invested in their children's education. In fact, our test scores are the among highest of any school (public or private) in Northwest Indiana.
We are seeking an innovative science teacher to work with our middle school (grades 6-8) science program. Our ideal candidate will work with administration to develop the best science curriculum in Northwest Indiana. Many of our 8th grade students are ready to move to biology and beyond, so knowledge and experience in high school science is a plus.
Our science teacher will have the ability to motivate our students and help them develop a strong interest in science. Candidates must also exhibit outstanding verbal, written and presentation skills when dealing with students, parents, fellow teachers and administration. Organizational skills are key as this teacher also plans and organizes a middle school science fair. Candidates must be licensed in Indiana or have the ability to be licensed in Indiana.
In addition to a competitive pay and benefits package, St. John the Evangelist teachers enjoy quality of work life which includes:
- strong emphasis on discipline, responsibility and accountability and very few/minor discipline issues
- working with students who love to learn and score well above state averages
- strong parental support and involvement
- ability to share their faith and instill moral and character development in their students in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ
