Job Description

The Linden School is seeking a Full-Time Physical and Health Educator for middle and high school students. 

Linden's small classes mean you have time to get to know students well. And Linden students love learning, so you spend your time teaching, not focusing on classroom management.

We are a socially progressive community where innovative best practices in girls’ education promote and strengthen voice, well-being, academic excellence, and global engagement. Driven by the values of inclusivity, diversity, and intellectual risk, staff and faculty work in a culture of respect, collaboration, and intellectual curiosity.

We encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those that identify as women and/or LGBTQIA2S+
