About Millennium School
Our aim is to re-imagine middle school for the 21st century. Instead of seeing the middle school years as “awkward” and “difficult,” we think they’re the most important years to prepare students for the path to happy and successful adulthood. We’ve built a team of leading educators, researchers, and adolescent development psychologists, and together we’re designing a new model for middle school: one that combines highly engaging academics with an approach that is social, personal, and rooted in the real world.

The Role: Guide
We call our teachers “Guides” to indicate how we see the ideal learning relationship with students. We support the shift from “sage on the stage” to “guide by the side” and beyond.We are looking for a Guide with personal values like these:

  • Your passion is to help others grow.You accurately observe students’ strengths, personality and challenges; you have a strong sense of what excellence looks like in given areas of study; you combine the determination to lovingly challenge students with the compassion and wisdom to know when to be patient or to step back.

  • You have a calling for, and deep appreciation of adolescents. You know youth culture; you love the uniqueness of this age.You see middle school as a time of transformation, not just in intellectual development, but also across social, emotional, physical, ethical, and creative intelligences.

  • You’re on a lifelong learning journey. Whether through vocation, travel, personal study, reacting to challenging life experiences or otherwise, you’ve undergone and can articulate your learning journey. You’ve had to face personal challenges and have come out humble and with greater clarity about your path. You’ve developed personal habits and mindfulness practices that support you in continuing to grow.

  • You’re worldly. You are “world savvy” and pragmatic about how to get things done in the real world. You’ve traveled or even lived overseas; you’ve been entrepreneurial formally or informally. You’ve endeavored to create value, faced failure and experienced success.

  • You comfortably exist in and naturally model authenticity. Through experience and practice and perhaps your own mentors, you’ve developed an awareness of what authenticity looks like, and a comfort being yourself.
