The Middle Way School (MWS) is seeking a Mandarin Chinese language teacher with experience teaching early learners. In the 2021-2022 school year, MWS will have students ages 3-11, with overlapping classes.

MWS is located on five acres of forested land. It is an uplifted, dynamic environment to work, with daily meditation and ample professional support. We seek seasoned teachers who know how to meet conventional outcomes in unconventional ways and who have the skillful means to differentiate in ways that help meet students exactly where they are academically. Applicants must have a deep interest in the Middle Way view and openness to manifest it through presence and pedagogy. Being a practicing Buddhist is not necessary, however, an understanding of Buddhist principles and terminology and experience in Buddhist practices is appreciated.

The Middle Way School welcomes and strongly encourages prospective employees of any race, age, national or ethnic origin, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic background to apply. The Middle Way School will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship. As an institution and as individuals we have the responsibility to actively change the power differences that perpetuate biases against historically underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. We welcome your experience and input to how our school community can do this.

Please send your resume and a cover letter expressing why you are interested in joining the Middle Way School. You may also apply via Indeed.
