Regina Pacis Academy, an independent, Catholic classical school located in Norwalk, Connecticut, serving students in grades PreK-8, is seeking applicants for a Grade 5 and 6 full-time teaching position for the 2022/2023 school year.
We are in a time of great growth (with enrollment expanding by 50%), and we are looking for passionate educators called to the vocation of teaching!
This lead homeroom teacher would be responsible for planning and teaching most subject areas (literature, language arts, science, history, religion) to their assigned grade level homeroom. Mathematics and Latin are taught by specialized teachers.
An ideal candidate would be:
-A faithful, practicing Catholic, willing to make a formal Profession of Faith and take an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church
-An experienced, certified teacher having at least 2 years of classroom teaching or tutoring experience
-An individual who is organized, prompt, and adaptable to changes in the classroom
-An educator who loves learning, strives to help each student grasp the concepts taught, and manages the classroom with a firm but loving manner
At Regina Pacis Academy, our educational approach is centered around enabling our students to pursue and achieve academic excellence through a classical model, while immersing them in an authentically Catholic environment in which they will be exposed to the goodness, the truth, and the beauty of God. Successful educators at our school will not only be those who can employ the classical approach well and encourage each child to achieve their full God-given potential, but who are themselves living witnesses of their Catholic faith who desire to hand down to our students the faith which they have received.
With these principles in mind, applicants are strongly encouraged to comment on the following in their letters of interest:
1) Your previous experience with teaching from a classical curriculum, or your knowledge, appreciation for, and understanding of the unique benefits of a classical curriculum in pursuing academic excellence
2) How your own active practice of the Catholic faith will influence your approach to fostering an authentically Catholic classroom and school environment for your students
