Visiting Math Instructor

The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts (ASMSA), a campus of the University of Arkansas System, invites applications from highly qualified candidates for a one-semester, full time, temporary appointment as a Mathematics Instructor beginning January 7, 2019.

In brief, ASMSA is tasked with providing extraordinary opportunities for a diverse group of students. Established by the General Assembly in 1991 as a public, residential high school to serve talented and motivated Arkansas juniors and seniors from throughout the state as a school of choice, ASMSA—located in historic downtown Hot Springs and adjacent to Hot Springs National Park—is one of only 15 public, residential high schools in the United States specializing in the education of students with an interest in advanced careers in math and science as well as passion for and creativity within studio, language and digital arts. ASMSA offers more than 60 courses for college credit, and all students earn an average of 50 hours of college credit while finishing high school.  Graduates achieve an average ACT composite score of 30.  Newsweek, The Daily Beast, and The Washington Post have ranked ASMSA among the nation’s Top 25 high schools over the past four years.

A Master’s degree in mathematics, statistics, or a comparable field is required. The successful candidate must have the ability to teach courses in college algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and electives in their areas of personal interest. Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in working with gifted students, teaching through technology, developing interdisciplinary curricula, team planning skills and problem solving skills.

As a residential community of learning, ASMSA’s core philosophy values the development of students’ interests and talents beyond the classroom.  As such, faculty are expected to support student research projects, provide tutoring assistance, facilitate successful transitions, promote the school through outreach programs, and contribute to the residential experience.
