Company: Beaver Country Day School

Location: Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

Full-time

Beaver Country Day School—an independent day school located just outside of Boston, serving grades 6-12—seeks a future-focused passionate educator who can nurture a culture of innovative thinking in the area of computational thinking. The Computational Thinking & Computer Science Teacher i s a full-time faculty position for the 2022-2023 school year.

About Our School & Our People:
We are not your typical independent school. Education is not traditionally seen as forward-thinking. But that`s not the case at Beaver. We welcome change and seek feedback to continuously improve. Our "Launch, Test, Refine" mindset promotes flexibility, risk-taking, open-mindedness, and innovation. Our business is providing a future-focused education rooted in real-world context and experience and our clients are our students.

The Beaver mindset and approach to teaching place our students at the center of learning experiences in all settings, curricular and co-curricular.

Our students in grades 6-12 are interesting and passionate individuals, who, above all, are genuinely happy to be at Beaver. We provide students with opportunities to be co-creators of their learning, making it a deeper, more meaningful experience. We are committed to providing an educational environment in tune with the real world and doing authentic work.

Our teachers and educational leaders are committed to—and excited about— expanding the nature of school, and igniting and fueling the passions of all our students.

Our mindset is to make excellent mistakes, launch/test/refine, and not be defined by binary thinking. Instead, we look to approach things from a both/and outlook: tradeoffs don’t have to be the answer and instead, that’s where creativity comes in. We are a community of creative thinkers and doers.

Our values include collaboration, partnership, and above all, creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for our community. This work is a priority and steadfast commitment. It is never “done”, and we will always make decisions with this at the core of who we are. For all Beaver students to feel a sense of belonging, it’s important that they see themselves reflected in the community, curriculum, and all our programming.

Our goal every day is to create a school that is making an impact – for our students, and for education as a whole. We don’t take that work lightly, we need people that are relentlessly committed to it and excited to do this work—together.
