Employment Opportunity: Main Line Classical Academy

The Main Line Classical Academy (www.mainlineclassical.org), a small, academically rigorous K-8 in Bryn Mawr, is seeking a talented, experienced, and enthusiastic part-time LATIN TEACHER for the 2019-20 academic year.

All MLCA students begin the study of Latin in 4th grade.  We eschew some of the more popular modern pedagogical methods which dilute the study of grammar and postpone engagement with original Latin texts.  Our Latin curriculum moves at a fast pace, grounded in rigorous study of grammar and syntax (à la Wheelock).  Already in fifth grade, children begin memorization of short poetic passages from Vergil and Horace.  By 8th grade, they transition from focusing mainly on grammar to reading Caesar, while continuing to review grammar and syntax.

For the 2019-20 academic year, the position will entail teaching Latin to grades 4, 5, and 6, with the total teaching load of twelve 45-min periods/week.  The position may develop into a full-time one in future years as we fill out the grades.

The successful candidate will have serious background in the study of Latin and the Ancient World as well as experience teaching Latin to young students.  He/she will be invested in our pedagogical method: intensive study of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary and rapid progress towards Classical poetry and literature.  Special preference will be given to candidates with an MA or PhD in Classics.

To apply, please send a resume and cover letter, including salary history, to info@mainlineclassical.org with “Applicant for Latin Position” in the subject line.
