Careers at St. George's

Teaching and Learning at St. George's

Join one of the most dynamic faculty communities in Memphis, a community grounded in a commitment to teaching and learning that is active and agile. St. George’s places a high value on relationships that foster confidence, and curiosity in students so that they can courageously chase their dreams. We believe that whenever we greet students, laugh with them, connect with them, and show kindness to them, we are naming them as God’s children and connecting them to our rich Episcopal culture. In so doing, we affirm their place in the St. George’s community and create a culture in which they can best learn, grow, and thrive.

  • We will be the right school for teachers who strive to put the needs of each student dead center, every day, every class, every interaction.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who want to challenge their own practice whenever there is an opportunity to serve students better.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who, through their participation in departments, grade levels, and divisions, model the characteristics of great collaborators and colleagues.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who are ready to be the reason that a student and family should choose our school.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who are deeply aligned with our strategic plan and are earnestly committed to moving it forward.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who reach out not only to the students who make it easy on them, but also to all those who don’t.
  • We will be the right school for teachers who pitch in when they can, however they can.
  • Finally, we will be the right school for teachers who strive to be the sort of people we describe in the Portrait of a Graduate.
