Job Opportunities

Fieldston School looking for substitute teachers

I am currently the chair of the history department at Fieldston school in Riverdale, an independent progressive/prep school.  We are always looking for capable substitutes for our history classes and have had really good luck with graduate students who are dissertating and have some time flexibility (or recent graduates looking to make some money while they are job hunting).  I found that it is very much like teaching undergraduates history at most colleges.  The class sizes are never larger than 21 and usually more like 16 and more often than not are discussion based.  The school pays $175 a day for sub work — regardless of how many classes you cover (at the MOST, we have 4 classes in a day with 2 preps).  The school can be reached via the 1 line and is the last stop (or for people with cars, we do have parking on campus).
