Job Description/Responsibilities:
University School of Nashville invites qualified candidates to apply for a full time position teaching high school languages, particularly Spanish.

Responsibilities include teaching five sections (likely various levels of Spanish), serving as an advisor to approximately ten students, participating collegially in meetings and initiatives of the world language department and of the high school faculty, and taking an active role in the life of the school community. World Language classes at USN focus on developing communicative skills in the target language. Rather than solely focusing on grammar and syntax, language courses at USN aim to focus on the power of oral and written communication, cultural awareness and sensitivity, and the importance of understanding the broader context of language learning in our contemporary socio-cultural climate.

Qualifications include at least a bachelor’s degree in the target language or a closely related field, high school or college teaching experience, the ability to teach a range of levels of language, an appreciation for high school students, and experience in a diverse school community. We have particular interest in teachers with experience in multiple languages, leading international travel opportunities, and departmental leadership.

University School of Nashville is an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational day school with enrollment of 1,050 students kindergarten through twelfth grade. In 1915, the George Peabody College for Teachers opened Peabody Demonstration School (PDS), USN’s predecessor, which earned acclaim for its curriculum and faculty. In 1974, Peabody College announced plans to close PDS, and a group of parents, alumni, students, and teachers reconstituted and re-chartered the school as University School of Nashville.

USN’s midtown location next to Vanderbilt University and its Peabody College for Teachers reminds us every day of our 100-year-old roots in the demonstration school culture of innovation and educational best practices. It’s a vibrant educational community for both students and teachers in the midst of a dynamic city.

A deep-rooted culture of achievement at USN means that students expect much of each other, and faculty benefit from that high standard. We seek educators who are enthusiastic about their own learning to complement their teaching, and we offer many opportunities for professional development. USN is committed to creating an institutional environment that mirrors the cultural and ethnic composition of greater Nashville. USN encourages a diverse applicant pool and provides equal employment opportunities for employees and job applicants.
