  • 2022-23 Opening: Upper School Mathematics Department Chair

    St. Luke’s School, a secular, college-preparatory day school serving grades 5 through 12, seeks an exceptional and inspiring educator to lead an Upper School Mathematics department known for the extraordinary commitment of its teachers. Whether the content is Algebra I or Multivariable Calculus, St. Luke’s math teachers put students first.  It’s the culture of the department that any teacher will meet individually with any student for extra help, even if they’re not teaching the student that year.    

    As Department Chair - with clarity, compassion, and creativity - you will lead the professional growth and development of your faculty; the appropriate annual placement of promoted students as well as those matriculating from dozens of feeder schools; and the ongoing design and delivery of a forward-looking mathematics curriculum that prepares students for advanced courses of study. We are looking for someone eager to join and lead ongoing conversations about how best to teach math, and how to do so in a way that inspires more of what Seymour Papert has called “hard fun.” We welcome a range of instructional methods, with a focus on innovative practice, and are currently inspired as a department by Building Thinking Classrooms and the work of Peter Liljedahl.
