School Name Pingry School
City, State Martinsville, NJ 
Posted 01/03/2018

Founded in 1861, The Pingry School is an independent, co-educational, college preparatory day school for 1,100 students in kindergarten through the twelfth grade, situated on two campuses in Basking Ridge and Short Hills, New Jersey.


The Pingry School seeks a dynamic and intellectually engaging Middle School Spanish teacher to join a diverse academic community. The ideal candidate is committed to guiding young people as they construct their understanding of Spanish in a student-centered classroom environment. This educator is a collaborator with an appreciation for the teachable moment, when moral and ethical questions arise in and out of the classroom. A person with consistently high standards, the candidate of choice seeks growth and learning every day, both personally and professionally, and inspires others to do the same through optimism, selflessness, flexibility, and teamwork. The selected candidate has a real desire to contribute to the school community by sharing their passions and through additional efforts, such as advising students, coaching teams, directing clubs, or supervising activities.


Required qualifications include a bachelor’s degree, native or near-native proficiency in spoken and written Spanish, strong background in Spanish culture and literature, fluency with Spanish language pedagogy, experience teaching Spanish, proficiency with technology, dedication to working cooperatively with other Spanish and world language teachers to maintain a strong language program, and robust interpersonal skills.  In addition to honor and character, commitment to intellectual engagement, and appreciation for stewardship and sustainability, especially important is the candidate’s ease with diverse constituencies and demonstrated commitment to an inclusive school community.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and letters of reference to Dr. Delvin Dinkins, Assistant Headmaster–Basking Ridge Campus, at ddinkins@pingry.org.
