    Summary:
    ESA is seeking a dynamic and engaging World Language teacher to teach Middle and Upper School Spanish and French. The World Languages Department at ESA is structured around the intensive study of French or Spanish. Instruction within the department includes not only the usual skills of reading, writing, and listening, but introduces an entirely new way of speaking. Proper use of intonation, appropriate facial expressions, and gestures inherent to native speakers are emphasized along with the obvious use of new sets of vocabulary and grammatical structures.

    Instruction is through the immersion method; limited English is spoken in the class after the first few weeks. Grammatical structure is taught orally throughout the curriculum, as required by given situations, rather than in a structured series of exercises. The ultimate goal of the study of world languages at ESA is to demonstrate that a world language can become a natural means of communication and an integral part of life.

    The ideal candidate will engage students in a variety of ways to engender enthusiasm for the lessons, and he/she will embrace the idea of the immersion method. A Bachelor’s degree is required, and a Master’s degree or higher is preferred. Ideal candidates should have a high degree of fluency in both Spanish and French (at least Advanced on the ACTFL proficiency level or at least B2 on the DELF framework).

  • Upper School English Teacher

    ESA is seeking a dynamic and engaging secondary English teacher.  Specific course assignments will vary based on the successful candidate’s interests and expertise.  Our English department fosters three core skills: active reading, critical thinking, and crisp writing. As an Episcopal school, we also endeavor to advance the ethical development of our students, and we consider the English department’s curriculum and teachers vital components of that mission. Through a wide range of developmentally appropriate fiction and nonfiction reading and writing, students wrestle with moral and ethical questions. Teachers act as guides and facilitators who lead students toward logical and empathetic values in verbal and written expression.
               
    Our English curriculum introduces students to the foundations of world literature and to the practice of writing about literature. Freshmen explore the roots of the major early written texts in the sacred scripture, mythology, folklore, and songs of ancient civilizations. Anchor texts vary from year to year but have included Gilgamesh, The Ramayana, and The Odyssey.  Sophomores study British literature and explore the major literary periods, topics and themes beginning with the Anglo-Saxon period and ending with the Modern period.  Juniors study American literature and have the option to take AP English Language and Composition. ESA senior English students take two one-semester capstone courses of their choosing.  Course offerings vary from year to year and may focus on specific topics, themes, genres, or authors. While exposing students to a variety of traditions and points of view, these courses refine and develop student critical thinking, reading, and writing skills.
     
    The English curriculum coincides with the social studies curriculum, and English class discussion and writing assignments help students draw connections between selected texts and what they are learning in social studies about history, literature, philosophy, and culture. Grammar, rhetoric, and composition lessons ensure that students master the ability to produce academic writing that demonstrates not only standard English grammar and mechanics, but also the sensitive use of a wide range of sentence constructions.
     
    The ideal candidate will engage students in a variety of ways to engender enthusiasm for the lessons, and he/she will embrace the idea of experiential learning.  A Bachelor’s degree is required, and a Master’s degree or higher is preferred.  ESA is accepting resumes from new teachers, but 3 or more years teaching experience is also a preference.
     
    Episcopal School of Acadiana is a co-ed, college-preparatory day school for students in grades PK-3 through 12.  Our mission is to instill in every student the habits of scholarship and honor.  ESA challenges its students to develop intellectually, spiritually, and physically.
