Laboratory Schools: Spanish Teacher, High School (1 year only)

University of Chicago

This is a Full-time position in Chicago, IL posted May 2, 2021.

DepartmentLab School High School FacultyAbout the DepartmentThe University of Chicago Laboratory Schools provides one of the world’s most outstanding pre-collegiate educational experiences.

Because Lab is part of the University of Chicago, the importance of intellectual life-of thought and exploration-infuses all aspects of our curriculum and students in every grade benefit from outstanding UChicago academicians and access to unmatched resources.

John Dewey-one of the great minds in education-established the Schools in 1896 as a place to explore and implement his theories on childhood education.

Today’s students still benefit from his vision, and today’s Lab faculty are recognized as experienced leaders in their field.

Families who choose Lab care deeply about curiosity, inquiry, and creativity.

Approximately 60 percent of Lab families are affiliated with the University, half live in Hyde Park, and the rest come from across Chicago, the suburbs, and northern Indiana.

Lab’s student body reflects the diversity that is deeply valued by the Schools and its community; approximately half of our 2,000 students are people of color and families report speaking nearly 40 different languages in their homes.

The Laboratory Schools seek the finest employees-people who wish to inspire a love of learning in our students and join a vibrant learning community.

We employ people with a wide range of skills and training, in many different disciplines.

At Lab, we value learning experientially, exhibiting kindness, and honoring diversity.

We seek employees who share a similar commitment to these values.

Lab people are engaged and excited by our mission of igniting and nurturing an enduring spirit of scholarship, curiosity, creativity, and confidence in the youngest members of the University of Chicago’s academic community.
