  Language(s)   Spanish
  Location   Goochland, VA
  Description  

Good afternoon,

Goochland County Public Schools is looking for a new Spanish Teacher at Goochland High School! Specifically, we are looking for a long-term team member to join our Spanish faculty. We hope to find a person with enthusiasm and energy, a love for the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures, and an aptitude for organizing and maintaining a healthy and productive classroom environment. Our dear colleague has recently decided to stay home with her newborn son, so we are hoping to find someone interested in investing in a future with us.

Goochland is a lovely county in which to work, with the progressive new programs, initiatives and compensation of larger counties in the comfort and flexibility of a smaller system! We are looking forward to finding our newest family member for the division's World Language team.

Below, please find more information about the position, program, and the salary/benefits for GCPS.

• We are on a block schedule. The position is for six blocks of teaching, and would include one 80 minutes planning period every day. We are also expected to do a duty (such as monitor the cafeteria or bus loop, etc.) every other day for 10-30 minutes.

• Currently, we know the position will include three Spanish 1 classes (current average class size is fewer than 24 students). The numbers will likely change, but not significantly.

• The other three blocks of teaching have the option to include the following choices, depending on the candidate we find and his/her eligibility and experience/comfort level to teach certain levels:

-for candidate with Master's with 18 credit hours of SPAN courses - one class of Advanced College Academy 101-102; around 16-20 students

-for candidate with Master's with 18 credit hours of SPAN courses - one class of Advanced College Academy 201-202: around 14-18 students

-one to two, class(es) of Spanish II

-one to three classes of Spanish III

-potentially one course of AP Spanish Language and Culture

• Josh Rooke will be teaching remaining blocks of Spanish 2 and would be more than happy to share all lesson plans with our new colleague. He has digital copies of all of lessons and ancillary materials.
