The Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM)
The Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM) seeks a self-motivated individual with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to guide its US History program. The US History instructor will be responsible for teaching four sections of history and managing the resources required to do so. Most years, this will involve three sections of US History and an additional history elective. However, depending on the student body, there may be years when the instructor is required to teach four sections of US History. History courses at MSSM are writing intensive courses that focus on excellent research and communication skills that go beyond rote textbook instruction. A willingness to explore multiple perspectives in critical and meaningful ways is crucial, as is an awareness of the evolving field and a willingness to introduce students to the complexities of writing about history.

Preference will be given to individuals holding a Master's Degree in US History or a related field. In addition to teaching responsibilities, faculty members are also required to advise a group of students, host a student club or activity, and interact with colleagues and students in this vibrant academic setting.
