The Lang School is a progressive, private school for highly gifted learners with diagnosed with learning challenges such as dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety, or high functioning autism (formerly Asperger's) – in other words, "twice exceptional" or "2e" learners. Each of our classes grades 1 through 12 is capped at 12 students.
We are looking for an intellectually engaged, growth mindset-oriented, middle school teacher to partner with the same in teaching ELA and History to a homeroom class of 12 6th grade students. Deep background knowledge in history and literature, as well as research-based techniques in the teaching of writing, will be called on daily with this passionate and precocious group of learners who tend to be reluctant writers.
Lang faculty enjoy exceptional onsite coaching; ample daily planning periods; collaboration with master's- and doctoral-level therapeutic staff in supporting student needs; ongoing school-funded professional development; and a strong sense of community. The right candidate will attend Ross Greene's Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) workshop in Portland, ME, July 10 through 12, as well as training this summer in Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) – both at the school's expense. School begins for faculty on August 27th; hours for teachers are 8a.m. until 4p.m., with a staff meeting until 5p.m. on Wednesdays.
