We want to attract forward-thinking professionals to our faculty who have the human skills to really engage and inspire our students. We are interested as much in who you are - what motivates you, what life experiences you will bring with you, and what you think really matters in education. We are an educational community that wants to talk about ideas and work together to prioritize what we believe in. In this spirit, we seek professionals who actively collaborate with colleagues and who are willing to try fresh approaches to teaching and learning.
