Faculty at Marvelwood

The Marvelwood School is a boarding community. Full-time teaching candidates have evening and weekend residential responsibilities, which vary somewhat depending upon whether the faculty member is seeking on-campus housing. In addition, all full-time faculty members coach or supervise in the athletic or extracurricular programs at a level consistent with their interests and abilities. The specific nature of these responsibilities will be negotiated during the hiring process and in some cases as needs are determined at the start of the school year.
Marvelwood employs a small number of teaching faculty on a part-time basis. This responsibility includes classroom teaching only, and teachers are paid on a per-class basis.
Salaries are competitive according to NAIS standards. Benefits include housing (with heat and electricity), and all meals when school is in session. Marvelwood also offers excellent health, dental and retirement benefits, including participation in TIAA-CREF. Generous funding is available to support advance degree work in the subject area, as well as participation in a wide variety of professional development opportunities, including conferences, workshops and summer study.
