John Burroughs School, an independent coeducational college preparatory school for grades 7-12, seeks an Educational Technology Specialist, who can help the faculty take advantage of new technologies to enhance the student learning experience, while being mindful of the school’s philosophy. Burroughs teachers recognize that technology can be a valuable educational tool when thoughtfully and effectively employed. They also understand that some of the most impactful learning takes place through face-to-face interactions in a technology-free environment. They value the ways in which technology facilitates student collaboration, puts a world of resources at students’ fingertips, and provides new ways to give useful, timely feedback, just as they value that Burroughs creates an environment that limits online distractions. 

This individual should be a passionate, energetic, experienced teacher with a love for learning and working with both peers and students in an academically rigorous and diverse environment. Strong interpersonal, listening, communication, and leadership skills are imperative. The Educational Technology Specialist (ETS) runs an in-house committee of teachers and librarians that identifies and evaluates new technologies and sets goals for future work. The ETS offers training and support to teachers adopting new technology in the classroom and is a resource for faculty seeking new technological tools to achieve pedagogical goals, both in one-on-one and group settings. The ETS is the main support for both students and teachers with regard to the school’s LMS (Canvas) and G Suite. The ETS also instructs a middle-school computer science course, aids in curriculum development, and co-coaches the school Robotics teams. The ETS maintains memberships at relevant local associations (ETA, METC) and spends a considerable amount of time researching and assessing available tools used by other schools. A Master’s Degree in Educational Technology along with Google Certification is preferred, but not required.

Responsibilities will include participation in the larger life of the school (e.g., attending daily morning assembly, supervising a lunch table, and advising). The ability to provide leadership in co-curricular areas (e.g., community service, student clubs, or student publications) is a plus.

Interested parties should send a letter of interest, educational philosophy statement, and resume to Debbie Drummond at

Files will be reviewed as received, with preference given to candidates whose materials are submitted by February 25, 2019.
