PE Teacher

St. Mark's Episcopal School
Palm Beach Gardens, FL United States

St. Mark’s Episcopal School is excited to hire a dedicated professional as a physical education teacher for the 2022-2023 school year.

St. Mark’s, established in 1979, is a co-educational parish day school, now serving 460 students from age two through Grade 8 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The foundation of St. Mark’s program is to provide students with balanced exposure to academics, arts, athletics, and spiritual life. At all levels, our students will be, as our mission states, academically enriched in a nurturing Christian environment.

At St. Mark’s, physical education is focused on teaching children how to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Emphasis is placed on each child putting forth his or her own best effort to strengthen endurance, enhance flexibility, and develop muscular strength. Personal improvement, rather than peer competition, is stressed and applauded. Most importantly, we want our children to understand the value of teamwork and how to win and lose with grace. In addition to teaching responsibilities, all physical education teachers coach middle school athletics and lower school intramural sports.

Ideal candidates are those who seek to partner with parents, collaborate with team members, demonstrate a commitment to professional growth, motivate students academically, and support students in developing their moral character.

Preferred Professional Qualifications:

  • A bachelor’s degree in physical education or related experience.
  • Ability to coach a number of sports.
  • Previous teaching and/or coaching experience.
  • Current Florida Commercial Driver’s License or willingness and ability to obtain such a license within the school year.
  • Willingness to chaperone overnight class trips.
  • Familiarity with independent school culture.
  • Comfort with a faith-based school.
