The ideal candidate will have advanced knowledge of both film and digital photography, darkroom chemicals and procedures, and safety as well as substantial experience teaching the fundamentals of photography to young people. In addition, candidates must exhibit an appreciation of photography as a skill, a craft, and an art form along with sensitivity to working with young people in a diverse academic environment inclusive of students, faculty, staff, and parents. This part-time, 10-month position includes eligibility to participate in our part-time benefits offerings along with all school year holidays. The Photography Teacher reports to the Arts Department Chair and the Upper School Principal.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
*

  • Teaching photography classes as assigned by the department chair.
  • Plan effective daily lessons, projects, and unit plans incorporating industry standards, Country Day values and photography traditions, safety, technical, academic, and technology skills.

Applicants should also have a willingness to experiment and be able to deliver effective critiques of student work in both group and individual settings, interacting with students in a way that engages them in problem-solving and risk-taking. In addition, every member of the Country Day Arts faculty is expected to be a professional artist or craftsman working in his or her own field, thereby demonstrating our belief that art is not an esoteric pursuit.
