About the job

Apply Now

The Traveling School is hiring new and returning academic teachers for Fall 2023 and Spring 2024! Visit to learn more and apply with our offical application form.

Our faculty are the heart of The Traveling School. We seek academic teachers who are passionate about transformative education and intentional community living during a 15-week semester on the move. The position requires a creative, organized, and flexible individual with strong interpersonal skills to live and work in a dynamic environment. TTS teachers create the framework for each semester, teaching academic classes, incorporating experiential opportunities, and engaging with the people we meet and the places we travel. Teachers must bring a collaborative, generative attitude to their teacher team and be able to supervise, teach, and mentor a group of high school students (ages 15 – 18) during a semester. They not only plan and teach academic classes, but also facilitate team-building activities, oversee contracted activities, manage risk daily, and bring fun and joy to semester life. Teachers have limited personal space, time-off and free-time for the duration of the four-month contract. Like students, they are requested to step back from technology, stay present in the experience, and engage with the immersive, community focused mindset of The Traveling School.

We will be accepting applications until March 10, 2023. We will review applications periodically during the open period and may begin to offer interviews to qualified candidates before applications close. Interested and qualified applicants are encouraged to apply prior to the March deadline.
