Please forgive crossposting, as usual in these instances. If you
know of someone who might be interested (notice that it doesn't need
to be an entry-level position), we'd be happy if you'd pass this on.
St. Thomas University is a small, Catholic, undergraduate, liberal
arts university where excellence in undergraduate teaching is the
highest institutional priority. The department of education invites
applications for a tenure-track appointment to commence July 1, 2000.
The appointment is intended to be at an entry level but an
appointment at the rank of associate professor might also be
considered. The successful candidate will be skilled in a course in
teaching methods in addition to possible courses in the areas of
educational psychology or secondary methods (language arts/English
and social studies/history) or the role of the professional.
Applicants should have successful teaching experience in one or more
of the K to 12 grades and have demonstrated to themselves and others
that they were effective and/or superior classroom teachers.
Teaching in a faculty of education would also be beneficial. A
Ph.D. or imminent completion is required, as well as a teaching
certificate or eligibility for a New Brunswick Teaching Certificate.
St. Thomas University's education programme is available to students
who have already completed an undergraduate degree. It consists of
60 credit hours over an eleven-month period (Sept. - July), and each
year accepts 60 students. Our programme is designed to develop and
encourage, through a small and intimate community of learners,
effective and competent classroom teachers. As a faculty, we are
committed to this model and we are seeking applicants who would
welcome the opportunity to work with us in, and help us develop and
learn from, this learning community. Each applicant should indicate
in the letter of application which profile they feel suits their
application, submit a curriculum vitae, samples of scholarly work,
evidence of teaching effectiveness (teaching portfolio preferred),
and arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to Dr.
