High School Spanish Teacher

  Posting Date   May 12, 2017
  Closing Date   Open Until Filled
  School/Organization   Goochland High School
  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.

• Olivia Exum will be teaching remaining blocks of Spanish 3 and would be more than happy to share all lesson plans with our new colleague. She has digital copies of all of lessons and ancillary materials.

• Olivia is available over the summer to help with curricular planning or needs that might ease transition.
• Since we are the only high school in Goochland County, we don’t administer county-wide tests and are given flexibility in regards to the way that we teach the content. We aren’t required to use a textbook, but do have the Realidades series textbooks and related materials for teachers that may want to use them.

• You can find more information about the specifics of the position here, http://goochlandschools.org/jobs/?category=High+School+Teaching

• You can find 2014-2015 salary information here. Raises have been given each year for the past several years, and one is expected this year as well. Health benefits are included with this position. http://www.glnd.k12.va.us/employment/2014-15_salary_scale.pdf

Thank you for considering this position, and/or for passing this information to relevant parties. If you or your colleagues have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either of us!
