Classics Teacher

Ridgeview begins instruction of Latin in kindergarten and Greek in the third grade. While instruction at these levels is of an elementary nature, it is also of a foundational nature. Both Latin and Greek are taught with the intent of supporting instruction of the etymologies and grammar of the English language. Ridgeview’s Classics program focuses on language, literature, history, mythology, and archaeology, though not all teachers are expected to teach all of these subjects. In the middle and upper levels, students are prepared to eventually read and discuss primary source texts from Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Livy, and Ovid, among others. In the elementary school, extensive use is made of Christopher Perrin’s texts for Latin and Greek. To assist in memorization, a spoken Latin program has been implemented with considerable success. Ridgeview is seeking applicants who are passionate about their discipline, creative, teachable, and excited to work with a broad range of pupils to ensure that the Classics are embraced as a cornerstone of Ridgeview’s academic program. Ridgeview neither requires nor prefers candidates with teacher certifications but would rather solicit applications from individuals who have demonstrated academic mastery in the Classics. Teaching experience is preferred but is not essential. Written and oral communication skills, punctuality, a strong work ethic, and collegiality are essential. Interested individuals should submit a complete application to the Executive Assistant.
