Job Opening: Middle School Math Specialist (6th-8th Grade)

St. Therese Catholic Academy (STCA) seeks a full-time middle school Math teacher beginning in August 2021. The content area specialty desired is Math (6th-8th Grade) along with one section of Religion and Homeroom responsibilities. Specific assignments for Religion and Homeroom will be determined when the full team is assembled.

STCA is a Preschool-8th grade Catholic elementary school in the heart of the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle, just 2 miles east of downtown. St. Therese is a welcoming, diverse, and faith-filled community that has been igniting the faith, minds, and dreams of our students since 1927. The school currently serves 175 students ages 3-14, 35% of whom receive free/reduced lunch. Our families commute from over 40 zip codes to be a part of our school, and 60% of our families receive tuition assistance. Our staff (the Dream Team) has about 30 team members and is expanding along with our enrollment. Our enrollment goal for our 94th school year in 2021-22 is 185 students. We are one of the most diverse (racially, ethnically, religiously, economically, geographically) Catholic schools in the region. We are a small community with a family feel. We have a truly dedicated team of educators and parents, a growing service-learning program, and a distinct Blended Learning model that allows us to individualize the learning experience for each child and readily access data to inform instruction through our resources and programs.

The middle school curriculum has been adding project-based learning initiatives to align with our service-learning focus areas of caring for our elders, caring for Creation, and caring for the homeless. We have a dual-leadership administrative model with a VP over academics and school culture and a Principal over operations and advancement to support our students, families, and teachers at this time.

The Middle School team (6th-8th) consists of 4+ teachers with content area specialties and each homeroom teacher is responsible for their own Religion classes. Opportunities for collaboration, joint planning through the PLC process, and implementing creative new ideas exist and are welcome. Applicants should be mission-driven, highly motivated, dedicated, and creative individuals who are interested in working with students and families from all backgrounds in a diverse, Catholic setting. The ideal candidate will bring passion, energy, faith, and a strong work ethic with a desire to become an instructional leader and enjoy partnering with colleagues and parents. The candidate must also desire to help students of varying ability levels succeed. We expect all team members to lead by example.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Bachelor Degree in Education (Master’s preferred)
  • Understanding and genuine appreciation of children 
  • Desire to work in a racially and economically diverse, faith-centered community
  • Ability to utilize educational technology in the classroom
  • Preferred active Catholic
  • Current Washington (or out of state) teaching certificate (or the ability to obtain one) with a (preferably) K-5 (minimum) endorsement

This position comes with full benefits and a competitive salary. Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to STCA Principal Matthew DeBoer and Vice Principal Teresa Day at principal@stcaseattle.org and vp@stcaseattle.org. Follow-up outreach via phone calls are welcome at 206.995.8100.  

Candidates of color are encouraged to apply.
