Position Title: Learning Center Director - Mathematics
Position Type: Other
Position Location: Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878, United States [map]
Subject Area: K-12 Math Education
Application Deadline: (posted 2021/05/12, listed until 2021/06/12)
Position Description:    

Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager students in the world.  Since 2003, we have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, learning centers, textbooks, and online learning systems. Over the years, our international online community of advanced problem solvers has grown to nearly 700,000 members. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, we have started expanding into new subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.

We currently have 10 physical AoPS Academy locations across the country and one Virtual Academy. Each campus location has one Campus Director and 2-4 Associate Directors based on the number of enrollments at the campus. All of our directors must have a strong math or language arts background. We are currently seeking a new Associate Director - Math at our Gaithersburg, MD campus to help lead and inspire the next generation of intellectual leaders.

About the Position
AoPS Academy Associate Directors wear many different hats. Every day is different and exciting. This might be a good fit for you if you are an expert in your subject area and have the pedagogical skills and instincts to not only teach outstanding lessons but also coach and collaborate with other teachers. You are a confident and effective communicator, capable of building strong relationships with teachers, parents, and community members.  You have previously taken on leadership roles and are still building on your management experience. You are eager to learn new things and assist the Campus Director in whatever tasks are needed, including:

  • Teaching math classes on a weekly basis
  • Hiring, training, and managing part-time teachers and office staff
  • Assisting with the logistical operations of running a campus
  • Meeting with current and prospective families
  • Responding to parent emails and phone calls
  • Building community partnerships and connections
  • Attending outreach events

Preferred/Required Skills and Experience

  • A bachelor’s degree in a STEM field is required. An advanced degree is preferred.
  • Teaching experience required; primary/secondary experience preferred.
  • Comfortable interacting and communicating with both students and parents.
  • Interest in growing management experience.

Work Schedule
Since AoPS Academy is an after-school program, most of our classes and family meetings occur during the evenings and on weekends. As such, it's expected that Campus Directors and Associate Directors work a nontraditional schedule during the academic year. During the summer, Directors and Associate Directors typically shift to a more standard Monday to Friday work schedule.

Benefits
This position includes a competitive salary, health insurance, dental insurance, a 401K retirement plan, and a raise structure-based on-campus performance. We also provide a relocation bonus for candidates living outside the greater area. 

Background Check: 
Please note that employment is contingent on the successful completion of a background check.

Please note that in order to be considered for this position you must be legally authorized to work in the US. We are unable to offer sponsorship.
