Why work at Field?

List of 6 items.


    Field has a thoughtful and comprehensive teacher training program for recent college graduates. Co-teaching opportunities and weekly mentoring sessions with experienced teachers supplement a rich program of in-house and outside training opportunities. Field also hires experienced teachers and people beginning teaching as a second career.

    The Field School boasts a faculty of exceptional moral and intellectual leadership.  If you want to approach your classes with energy, focus, and imagination, then Field may be a great home for you.  Our collegiality and encouragement of curricular initiative are exceptional.  We seek teachers who are eager to know the students and engage them as thinkers and as people.

    Field recruits a diverse faculty, and teachers are supported and encouraged in creating lessons that examine real-world topics (find more information about our programming here). There are frequent opportunities for teachers and students to discuss social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

    The DC metro area is one of the finest in the country: culturally rich, politically engaged, close to nature and cosmopolitan at the same time.

    Field offers teachers rich and varied professional support and opportunities for professional development.

    Field teachers are multi-talented people with multiple passions. From coaching a sport to teaching a special honors course during SHAM to taking on an extra project or initiative outside the classroom, Field teachers are always doing something new!

About the hiring process...

The Field School begins accepting resumes for teaching positions for the next school year in January and continues to accept resumes throughout the year. However, faculty recruitment begins in earnest mid-February and aims to wrap up June 15. Most interviews are conducted on campus and require a day's visit. 
A bachelor's degree is required for all faculty openings, and many first-year hires have only this credential. Teaching certification, an advanced degree, and prior teaching experience are also welcome. Typically, Field hires teachers who have varied interests, are entrepreneurial in outlook, and are flexible in approach. But above all, Field is looking for outgoing, knowledgeable teachers who care deeply about kids and will fully engage in the life of the school.

Field also has a number of staff positions in support of our educational programs. Periodically, the school has openings in the Front Office, the Admission Office, and the Advancement Office, as well as in the maintenance department. Those resumes should be e-mailed to employment@fieldschool.org.
