All teaching employees are supported by the Heads of each division, their peers, and the Head of School. Ample professional development opportunities are provided by school administration and faculty are encouraged to pursue additional opportunities at any point in their careers at Liggett. Successful teaching applicants are able to support the students through their involvement in the arts, athletic and after school programs.
University Liggett School is seeking teachers with a minimum of three years teaching experience in their field. A degree in the teaching subject area is mandatory. We are looking for educators who are confident in their content area knowledge, adept with the integration of technology, invigorated by the process of collaboration and experienced in implementing inquiry based lessons that put students at the center of their learning.
