Description & Details
Located on a 26-acre campus, Mercy High School provides a rigorous Catholic, college-preparatory education to bright and promising young women from more than 64 zip codes in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Mercy knows how to prepare young women to lead and to excel in a dynamic global society. Our highly individualized approach to a college-preparatory program challenges each Mercy Girl to become a young woman of intellect, faith, and service.

Sponsored by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Mercy High School continues a 150-year legacy of Mercy excellence in education in Baltimore. Rooted in the charism and tradition of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, we welcome young women from diverse backgrounds who together make Mercy an extraordinary learning community.

If you are excited about providing an excellent educational experience for talented young women, and if you are passionate about the values of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy - hospitality, compassion for others, service, justice, and equality - we welcome you to join us!

Responsibilities include:

teaching five computer science/academic technology courses, including Business Technology, Website Design, Computational Thinking, Topics in Technology and, potentially, programming for the iPad;
supporting the Women in Technology Program;
working collaboratively with other members of the technology team;
supporting the iPad program, including identifying applications that enhance teaching and learning within the curriculum;
participating in ongoing professional development;
attending school events, chaperoning activities, and participating in meetings; and,
after the first semester of teaching, advising a small group of students and serving on a year-level team.
Candidates should be dedicated to working with a diverse group of girls in a community that values intellectual pursuits, strong relationships, and spiritual development. The successful candidate will be cognizant of the special role each person in the school has in the spiritual and religious development of youth, be comfortable using a variety of pedagogical strategies and be extremely proficient with technology.
