    Spanish Full-Time Teaching Position

    August 2024

    The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland, California, seeks a full-time Spanish teacher beginning in August of 2024. This position entails teaching four sections of Spanish (level to be determined). Candidates should have a strong interest in working in a multicultural community and be eager to embrace spirited intellectual challenges in a rewarding academic environment. College Prep is a community of life-long learning, and actively encourages and supports the professional development of all of its members.

    Please apply by submitting a resume/CV and cover letter on Applicant Pro.

    Qualifications and desired characteristics:

    • Bachelor's or graduate degree in Spanish. A teaching credential is not required
    • Native or near-native fluency in the language
    • Experience teaching Spanish at either the high school or college level is required

    • Commitment to working with high school students outside of the classroom as part of our advising and other programs
    • Demonstrated cultural competence
    • Strong organizational and communication skills

    A full-time teaching position involves teaching 4 sections of about 16 students in each. Applicants must be willing and able to teach across the Spanish curriculum (levels 1 through 4) and to introduce students to the cultures of Latin America and Spain. The goals of the Spanish program are to create full-immersion classrooms where students learn the language through activities designed to practice the different modes of communication (interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational) and to promote cultural competence. Our Spanish and other World Language teachers work closely with one another, honing and reshaping curriculum, assessments, and assignments.

    The school's mission is to prepare students for productive, ethical lives in college and beyond by fostering a stimulating education within an atmosphere of consideration, trust, and mutual responsibility.

    Benefits include medical, vision, and dental coverage on a prorated basis, a retirement plan for eligible employees, and most pleasantly and collegially, a prepared lunch every day.
