Middle/Upper School - Hebrew @ Tarbut V'Torah Community Day School

Middle/Upper School - Hebrew

TVT Community Day School, a thriving TK-12 school of 700 students in beautiful Orange County,  CA, seeks a gifted educator starting in August, 2021 to join our learning community as a full-time, Middle/Upper School Hebrew teacher.

Located across the street from UC Irvine, TVT is very much a school on the make. We’ve recently completed a 60 million-dollar campus remodel and expansion, and this last year, Niche rankings rated TVT as the #1 Jewish School in the country while also placing us in the top 2% of all private K-12 schools nationally. As a pluralistic Jewish day school, TVT is committed to embracing diversity in all its forms – cultural, economic, racial, ideological, observance, and otherwise. To enable this diversity, TVT commits a significant amount of its operating budget to tuition assistance and welcomes families of varying observance levels and other faiths who seek our impressive academic program rooted in Jewish values. As a result, nearly a quarter of our families – and approximately half of our staff – identify as non-Jewish and come from diverse backgrounds. For more information about TVT follow this link (www.tarbut.com)

The ideal candidate for this position at TVT will have at least two years of experience teaching Hebrew and a B.A./B.S. in a relevant field (Master’s Degree or Ph.D. preferred); however, we are also open to candidates from non-traditional backgrounds. A successful candidate for this position will love Hebrew, appreciate the art and craft of teaching, enjoy collaboration, embrace challenges, maintain a rich life outside of school, find deep satisfaction in working with middle and upper school students, possess the emotional acuity and personality to inspire and engage kids, and maintain an excellent sense of humor. Teaching can be difficult work, but it’s wildly fun and meaningful. This candidate will also wish to contribute to the larger life of TVT outside of the classroom (e.g., club sponsorship, coaching, leading trips, designing new programs, or interviewing applicants for admission, etc.). Additionally, this candidate should feel comfortable using technology to bolster learning experiences. 

This full-time, salaried, and benefited position should be desirable for a candidate who seeks:                         

-A culture that balances high academic standards with character development – successful TVT graduates are creative and innovative citizens
dedicated to the Jewish value of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

-A culture that deeply values student and faculty voice

-A culture that supports innovation and risk-taking

-A culture in which teachers are encouraged to grow and to explore areas of professional interest (the school sets aside a sizable amount of
money for professional development and provides practical support for teachers to develop their pedagogy).

-Incredible faculty that support each other and make work feel like a second home

-A world-class campus and facilities

-A highly competitive pay scale 

TVT’s mission, values, pluralism statement, and educational philosophy drive everything at the school, and they provide insight into our culture. You can find all four at this link (www.tarbut.com/about/mission).
