Georgetown Visitation, founded in 1799, is an all-girls high school rooted in the Roman Catholic faith and Salesian tradition, committed to educating young women from diverse backgrounds. We are a faith-centered community dedicated to educational excellence, enriched by co-curricular and service programs. We guide our students as they integrate the search for truth with the pursuit of knowledge and dedicate their God-given gifts to making the world a better place.
Visitation is currently searching for a full-time science teacher for the 2023 - 2024 school year. The ideal candidate is energetic and is eager to educate and guide young women at this critical time in their lives, as well as to collaborate closely with department colleagues to create an excellent, comprehensive, and cohesive program in science at the school. Additionally, candidates should possess a clear vision for what success at high levels of science requires, be able to challenge talented young women to grow in critical thinking and creative problem solving and implement teaching methods that serve diverse learning styles.
As educators in the Visitation tradition, our teachers form lives as well as impart knowledge. We’re seeking a candidate who can help students understand how their science skills can be applied to address real-world challenges, nurturing and inspiring students as they learn to cultivate their skills for the betterment of the world around us. We seek to create challenging and joyful classrooms that cultivate a lifelong love of learning. To learn more about what it means to be a Visitation educator, we encourage you to read Educating the Heart and Mind, a brief pamphlet that outlines the six goals of a Visitation education.
