As a part of the classical tradition, Regents humanities courses seek to nurture students’ academic development as part of a larger, holistic path toward intellectual, spiritual, social, and emotional maturity. As a part of this holistic discipleship, our modern language courses seek to instill in students:
a blend of grammatical proficiency and speaking fluency;
a broadened cultural perspective through exposure to the history and literature of other peoples;
spiritual formation and growing Christian maturity through academic discipleship;
an appreciation for community-based engagement and service;
a vision for how all our pursuits are part of a life of service to God and others.
Because Regents faculty model this life of holistic service to God and others, we seek faculty with a deep personal commitment to Christ in all areas of life. Academically, this means that we strive for personal academic excellence and have a growth mindset, committed to life-long learning and professional development. Our teachers also have a heart to minister to both our students and our community more broadly. Opportunities for academic discipleship and relationship building outside the classroom include our student advisory program and annual grade-level field trips. Successful teachers will also demonstrate personal professionalism and skill in classroom management.
Preferred candidates will have experience in teaching Spanish at all levels (through AP), with an emphasis in the upper levels on discussion-based literary analysis and exploration of significant cultural texts, historical eras, and literary themes. Applicants should also demonstrate a commitment to classical Christian education.
Regents School of Austin is a unique K-12 school that educates 1,000 students on an 82-acre campus in southwest Austin. Our mission is to provide a classical, Christian education, founded upon and informed by a Christian worldview, that equips students to know, love, and practice that which is true, good and beautiful, and challenges them to strive for excellence as they live purposefully and intelligently in the service of God and man. Regents is well recognized by peers for outstanding accomplishments in teaching, curriculum, students' achievement, parental involvement, and community support.
WORKING AT REGENTS
The academic community at Regents is shaped by the excellence of the faculty, small class sizes, and the continuity of the K-12 program. Regents employees are engaged in an environment that is team-oriented and emergent. To ensure that our faculty is continually developing their skills in accordance with our performance objectives, we have a strong professional growth program. Even so, Regents culture is highly sensitive to the need for work/life balance and believes God made us to work from our rest.
