Campbell Hall Faculty Description

Campbell Hall seeks faculty who are dedicated to the developmentally appropriate education of the whole child; who are interested in learning as well as teaching; who connect their responsibilities with the philosophy and purpose of the school; who teach to empower as well as to inform; who are comfortable with questions as well as answers; who can work with direction, focus, humor, and dignity within the complexities of a diverse school environment; and who will be dedicated to promoting and maintaining an inclusive school community.

In addition to academic responsibilities, Campbell Hall faculty are involved in many aspects of school life. Coaching interscholastic athletics, chaperoning experiential education trips, participating in community service activities, helping students to produce school publications, overseeing student council, and leading a special interest club are just a few ways faculty are more deeply involved in the Campbell Hall community.

Campbell Hall faculty embrace the school’s mission and are dedicated to implementing a rigorous college-preparatory academic program. They are equally devoted to the emotional and spiritual development of each student, and they strive to relate to students, parents, and colleagues in ways that promote open and supportive communication. The result is a community where students and adults are confident to learn and grow.
