Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts (ASMSA)
The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts (ASMSA), a campus of the University of Arkansas System, invites applications from highly qualified candidates for an anticipated opening in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department as a mathematics instructor beginning August 2015. This is a ten-month, full-time opening. ASMSA is a public, residential high school for academically talented and motivated eleventh and twelfth grade students from across Arkansas.
In 2014, ASMSA was ranked among the nation’s Top 10 secondary schools in The Daily Beast’s annual survey of “America’s Top High Schools.” ASMSA’s “college bridge” program offers advanced high school coursework as well as university coursework through partnerships with other Arkansas colleges and universities.
A Master’s degree in mathematics, statistics or a related area is required, including at least eighteen graduate hours in mathematics.
The successful candidate must have the ability to teach courses in advanced algebra, trigonometry, calculus, additional higher-level courses as well as electives in their areas of personal interest. Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in working with gifted students, teaching through technology, developing interdisciplinary curricula, team planning skills and problem solving skills.
As a residential community of learning, ASMSA’s core philosophy values the development of students’ interests and talents beyond the classroom. As such, faculty are expected to support student research, provide tutoring assistance, facilitate successful transitions for incoming juniors, promote the school through outreach programs and contribute to the residential experience.
Preferred qualifications include an earned doctorate and three years of teaching experience.
Review of applications will commence April 22, 2015, and continue until the position has been filled. The estimated salary range is $42,000 to $47,000.
ASMSA is an AA/EOE employer.
