Description

Stratford Preparatory is seeking qualified candidates for a Middle and High School Music Teacher for the 2022-2023 School Year!

Who We Are:

A coeducational private day school serving Grades 6-12, Stratford Preparatory builds on 22-years of creating outstanding educational outcomes for our students in Preschool to Grade 8, by expanding Stratford School’s mission through high school. We are excited to start this journey with the relocation of Stratford Raynor Middle School (Grades 6-8) to our new Blackford Avenue campus in San Jose and welcome our first class of high school students in Grade 9 in Fall 2022.

Stratford School’s purpose, “Connecting students to their unique futures,” reflects our commitment to show young people how they can successfully and independently develop the knowledge, skills, and depth of character they need to thrive in a transforming world. Stratford Preparatory provides a rigorous and engaging college preparatory curriculum that focuses on real-world application of engineering, technology, and leadership skills, while also providing students opportunities to be confident learners, generous in spirit, and eager to follow their passions. 

Stratford Preparatory offers Advanced Placement (AP) and Stratford Advanced Studies (SAS) courses. While we recognize the value of AP as a gold-standard program for college admissions, we also believe that in some cases AP courses may actually limit the scope and rigor of instruction our students are ready for. Teachers are given the flexibility to design SAS courses in ways that challenge, interrogate, and combine the deepest possible critical understanding with the most rigorous application of those concepts and skills. Our academic programs develop internationally-minded, critical-thinking students able to take complex and often disparate knowledge, concepts and skills, and forge these into new and unique ways of solving problems.

What We're Looking For:

At Stratford Preparatory, teachers change lives. They are genuine, curious, passionate, striving, generous, and accountable individuals. They nurture, inspire, engage, and challenge students, modeling the path to ethical, happy, purposeful lives in a diverse, multicultural, multilinguistic community where the reality and hope of human potential are in action.

As a Music Teacher, you will be responsible for fostering in each student an interest in and ability for musical expression. The position requires a passion for music, a love of sharing music with a diverse group of middle and high school students, and the ability to design and implement excellent vocal and instrumental music programs. Courses taught in the music department include Chorus, Band, and Digital Music and Composition.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with other teachers and staff members to form a community of smart, talented, and creative people who are passionate and willing to work in a professional and academic environment.
  • Teach multiple sections of music to varying levels
  • Teach composition and Digital music using varying platforms.
  • Plan for differentiated, project-based learning and teach in creative and interactive ways that display your passion for the subject and educate students at an internationally competitive level.
  • Organize and execute an annual art exhibit  
  • Mentor students to foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, and individuality in all students.
  • Keep parents informed about the learning of their children, and be proactive in communication with parents.

 

Qualifications

Our ideal candidate is an experienced professional with the following qualities:

  • Bachelor’s degree required; Master’s degree preferred.
  • At least 2+ years of teaching and training experience at the high school or college level.
  • Eagerness to build supportive relationships with students in and beyond the classroom
  • A willingness to work actively and collaboratively with colleagues on curriculum development and alignment
  • A willingness to try innovative teaching strategies and formats. Ability to implement differentiated learning/instruction as required.
  • A commitment to continuous professional growth and an enthusiasm for lifelong learning
  • An ability to create and promote an inclusive learning environment
  • Strong organizational and time management skills

 

The Nitty Gritty:

Benefits and Salary: The salary for this position is competitive and dependent on education and experience. Stratford Preparatory, a Spring Education Group school, offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes:

  • Career Growth - We believe our people deserve every opportunity to utilize and expand their knowledge and skills, and to share their passions. From our classrooms to central operations, our culture is one of continuous learning, mentorship, and professional advancement in our schools or across our network.
  • Retirement - Your future financial well-being is important to us. We offer a solid 401K plan.
  • Health Insurance - We want you to have the care you need. We offer three PPO medical plans to choose from, as well as dental and vision insurance.
