*Job/Career Fairs: Job/Career Fair
YSC Academy Science Teacher - YSC Sports, Affiliate of Philadelphia Union (Wayne, PA)

OVERVIEW:

YSC Academy is an independent, college preparatory school enrolling elite soccer players in grades 8-12. Our college preparatory program is designed to meet the needs of talented young soccer players who possess strong character, resilience for learning, and robust intellectual curiosity. We’ve put into practice a paradigm shift that extensive research has shown to be crucial to the advancement of education: one which places the student rather than the teacher at the center of a dynamic learning process that emphasizes creativity. By training our students how to be the primary agents of their own learning this model prepares them for success in academic and professional environments that are increasingly defined by interdisciplinary collaboration, technological advancement, and cutting-edge innovation. We believe students should be able to understand and apply the science they are studying; read it, write it, explore it, and communicate it with confidence. In keeping with this shift, we follow a “blended learning model” which hybridizes classroom and online learning.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Passionate science educator for grades 8-12
  • Teach classes in Biology, AP Biology, Physics, and Environmental Sciences
  • Promote critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • Demonstrate success with managing collaborative learning groups
  • Integrate grade-specific technology skills into curricular units
  • Utilize a student-centered, inquiry-based style of teaching
