  • You’re eager to connect mathematics to the local region and the world. Want to take students on field trips or otherwise make math relevant in the lives of students?
  • You have a wide range of interests and are ready to engage with students. While mathematics will be your primary activity, you’re also eager to jump into other activities, like coaching, advising, running an elective or after-school club, or organizing special events on campus.
Does this sound like you? Then submit your materials right away. Please supply a resume, cover letter and two references to our employment line at employment@willowschool.org.
