The Field School's program is ambitious and bold, and our teachers are required to embody the mission of the school – self-discovery, skills of mind, generosity of heart – in their day-to-day interactions with students, in the design and implementation of curriculum, and in their professional interaction with colleagues.
Faculty members report to their respective Division Director, who are curricular and pedagogical leaders at The Field School and play a key role in upholding a high standard for teaching and learning. Division Directors are members of the school’s Senior Leadership Team, and they report directly to the Head of School. There is additional oversight, support, coordination and observation of teaching faculty by subject area Department Chairs.
We are looking for a Theater & Drama Teacher who can teach theater classes and direct and stage productions for students in grades 6-12. Experience in technical theater and its instruction is a plus but not a strict requirement. The Field theater program generally puts on three major productions each year: an all-school musical in the fall, a student-directed showcase in the winter, and an upper school play in the spring.
At Field, we believe that students learn best when they feel a sense of belonging at their school – when they are seen and valued by their teachers, peers, and school community. Our approach to community emphasizes respect for, and the inclusion of, all community members as individuals. We equally value a focus on the common good and the well-being of the school community as a whole. This balance means that we prioritize the community without prioritizing sameness.
Field is a place where our classrooms are better because they mirror the outside world we have a diversity of identity, thought, experience, and ability. We believe in the interconnectedness of people and ideas, and we strive to be a learning community at every level of the school. At the core, teaching faculty of any discipline are expected to be committed learners and model community members. While Field is an independent school we are not independent of each other, or our established academic standards. Faculty are members of the larger Field community and expected to shepherd the values of the school.
