Maternity Leave Upper School Humanities Teacher

Maternity Leave Humanities Teacher

Trinity seeks a maternity leave Humanities teacher to teach in the Upper School from January 7 through mid to late March. Our preference is that the successful candidate will teach a full load for the 3rd Quarter: a section of 9th grade Ancient Civilizations and a section of 10th grade Western Studies, plus also serving as grade 9 Advisor. However, splitting the classes between two maternity teachers is an option.

Trinity’s Humanities courses provide a fully integrated study of history, English, and the Bible for the freshman (Ancient Civilizations), sophomore (Western Studies), and junior years (American Studies); deep understandings of the interconnectedness of ideas, culture, and events; and a rich engagement as developing writers and thinkers. Primary and secondary historical sources and literature in the form of novels, plays, and poetry form the spine of the program’s study, and these are supplemented by study of music and art from within and beyond the relevant time periods. Humanities classes meet six 70-minute periods weekly— twice the amount of time allotted to most other disciplines—and students receive one credit in history and one in English for each Humanities course complete

The courses’ literature, interwoven with the themes (1) God, Philosophy, and Truth, (2) Government and Politics, (3) Social Structure (4) the Impact of Technology and Science, and (5) Art and Aesthetics, includes a variety of novels, plays, and poetry, helps students interconnect and deepen their understandings of ideas and themes, and often serves as the focus of the courses’ frequent and varied writing assignments. The courses also include the study of grammar and vocabulary. The courses integrate the Bible into the five overarching themes, and students study it as a document written within specific historical contexts so that they can appreciate it as both a sacred text and as a primary source.

Humanities goals include deepened fluency in the interconnectedness of ideas and the events that shape them; a rich understanding of historical cultures and their impact on the present; the continued development of persuasive, compelling prose; the solidification of grammar skills; the continued development of a broad and sophisticated vocabulary; refined abilities to read texts closely and analytically; and deepened skill in critical and creative thinking.

Trinity is a highly missional school, and an understanding of and commitment to the school's mission is essential. We seek faculty who love Jesus, teach well, and delight in teenagers, who, at Trinity, range from academically average to exceptional.

Qualities sought for this position include successful experience as an English or history teacher; rich and broad knowledge of literature, history, and scripture; love for writing; superb writing skills; skill at facilitating seminar-style discussions and interconnected “big questions,” running writing workshops, and using instructional technologies; and skill at differentiating learning and assessments. Substantial study of the humanities at the undergraduate and graduate levels and an active life as a reader and writer are preferred. Candidates should possess a minimum of a bachelor's degree.

In Trinity's young but fast-growing Upper School community, camaraderie, collaboration, showing up for student events, enthusiasm for Trinity's mission, and pitching in for the good of each other and our students are high values. Trinity also values faculty who are involved in school life beyond the classroom and, therefore, applicants who can coach, advise a club, or otherwise enrich our vibrant community.

Doctrinal Commitments
Trinity School is a Christian school, dedicated to a vision of education that is rooted in the Triune God. As an independent school, without institutional ties to any church or denomination, we remain committed to what C.S. Lewis called “mere Christianity”: “no insipid inter-denominational transparency, but something positive, self-consistent, and inexhaustible.” We hold to those truths that have united Christians through the ages, across the boundaries of time, place, race, denomination, and tradition:

  • The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—full of love and glory.
  • The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness, and authority of the Bible.
  • The value and dignity of all people: created in God’s image to live in love and holiness, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God’s wrath.
  • Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
  • Justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
  • The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and new calling to obedient service.
  • The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world.
  • The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.
