The Waverly School is an independent progressive school with a thematic (interdisciplinary), developmental, and experiential approach that spans preschool through 12th grade. We are looking for dynamic, motivated, and accomplished educators who are interested in joining a diverse community of students, faculty, and families.
Research shows that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning environment is critical to student success and a marker of educational excellence. One crucial component in creating such an environment is having a diverse faculty and staff that reflects the beautiful mosaic of students we teach. As such, we are participating in the sixth annual Southern California Diversity Recruiting Fair 2024 to recruit faculty, staff, and administrators from underrepresented groups. More than 50 independent schools in Los Angeles are participating.
WHEN: The fair will take place in person as well as virtually. The in-person fair is Saturday, March 16, 2024, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and the virtual component of the fair will be on Monday, March 18, 2024, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
WHERE: The fair is hosted at the Harvard-Westlake School’s Upper Campus (3700 Coldwater Canyon, Studio City).
HOW: In order to participate in the fair, job candidates must submit a resume using the following link by Thursday, February 15, 2024: Register Here.
The link will be provided to registrants. The fair schedule will include 15-minute panels such as teaching in an independent school; diversity, equity, and inclusion in education; and working as an administrator in an independent school. Please see this document for further details: Flyer (PDF)
If you or someone you know is an educator or interested in becoming an educator, please join us on Saturday, March 16, 2024, to learn about the wonderful world of working in an independent school and to speak directly with school representatives about open positions.
