The College Preparatory School

Spanish Half-Time Teaching Position

The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland, California, seeks a half-time Spanish teacher beginning in August of 2021. This position entails teaching two sections of Spanish I, II, or III. 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.

Qualifications and desired characteristics:

  • Bachelor's or graduate degree in Spanish
  • Native or near-native fluency in the language
  • Experience teaching Spanish at either the high school or college level
  • Commitment to working with high school students outside of the classroom as part of our advising system and other programs
  • Demonstrated cultural competence
  • Strong organizational and communication skills
  • Patience, flexibility and a good sense of humor

Section sizes average 16 students. Applicants must be willing and able to teach across the Spanish curriculum (level 1 through III) and to introduce students to the cultures of Latin America and Spain. The goals of the Spanish program are to create full-immersion classrooms, to build towards teaching advanced listening, reading, writing and speaking skills, and to promote global perspectives among students. 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. College Prep students are engaged and motivated learners who help create a kind, intellectual and equitable community. Faculty and staff thrive at College Prep when they engage in the rich opportunities of its many co-curricular programs. College Prep actively designs programming and curricula that seek to strengthen the school's ties to Oakland and to the greater Bay Area.

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

Founded in 1960, The College Preparatory School is an independent coeducational secondary school created for intellectual risk-takers who want to pursue a purposeful education with kindred peers. As an equal opportunity employer, College Prep welcomes candidates representing diversity of all kinds. We celebrate the inclusivity of our community regarding race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
