    • Pedagogical instruction on research-based practices

The Archer School for Girls is an educational community that supports and challenges young women to discover their passions and realize their true potential. Serving 500 girls in grades 6-12, Archer’s joyful and ambitious learning environment is founded on the research about how girls learn best.

  • teaching one section of middle school history for the 24-25 school year
  • teaching three sections of 9th grade history for the duration of the lead teacher’s maternity leave (October 2024 – approximately April 2025).

  • assisting with Archer’s Artemis Center which fosters and supports student activism

Beyond competitive pay and benefits, faculty enjoy working in a highly collegial, student-centered, and joyful learning community.
