Harkness Initiative, located in the beautiful colonial city of San Luis Potosi, is looking for a full time high school Social Sciences teacher.


Who We Are

Harkness Initiative is a bilingual and bicultural preparatory high school that employs a unique peer-to-peer approach to education. Instead of big groups, our students, gather around a Harkness conference table in groups of 14. There, students share the information and acquired knowledge independently, and is through the exchange of ideas when knowledge grows, remains, and wisdom is born. Through this transformative way of learning we have achieved great results. We are the preparatory high school with the highest College Board score in Mexico.

Our mission is to help our students develop a true love of learning developing socially responsible future leaders.


Who We Want

Great teachers do more than boost student achievement. They change lives.


Applicants must have a minimum of Bachelor´s degree in a Social Science – preferably in economics or history - , at least 1 year of teaching experience, strong recommendation letters, and the desire to work with bright and highly motivated high school students for at least two years. Teachers with experience teaching US history and economics will be strongly considered. Enthusiasm for the subject matter is a must. At Harkness, students learn mostly through discussions (The Harkness Method), so excellent communication skills are necessary. The maximum class size is 14 students.


We value educators with diverse backgrounds and life experiences; who value and understand the importance of academic rigor; that are committed to students; and life long learners. We are looking for candidates who can make a longer commitment (more than 1 year) and are passionate about teaching.


Responsibilities will include but will not be limited to: create lesson plans, teach up to 26 hours/week, grade papers/exams, mentor the model UN team, participate in school meetings and events, stay in touch with parents. The position also involves meeting with students who are struggling with keeping up with the workload (tutor/counselor) and coordinating some student activities.


Please email your resume, picture, and cover letter to Alvaro Lopez, Principal, Harkness Initiative, alopez@harknessinstitute.com.
