Washington Latin is a liberal arts, college preparatory school with a classical mission. We serve 700 students in grades 5-12 from across the District. We believe that all students deserve a quality education that goes beyond preparation and focuses on developing knowledge, understanding and humanity. Ours is a school where words matter, ideas matter, and people matter. We strive to help our students to become thoughtful people who will contribute to the public good and continue a lifelong quest towards a fuller humanity.

Teacher wanted for five sections of Middle School Latin for the 2018-19 School Year. Teacher would be responsible to the Grade Director, Principal, and Head of School. Candidate must be eager to work with students of all abilities in a non-selective school and have a deep enough command of Latin to adapt instruction to students’ interests and needs. Instruction focuses not only on the grammar of the language but also heavily on derivatives, mythology, and content connected to cultural literacy. Experience using Latin actively is useful but not necessary. Candidate must also be willing to involve him or herself in the life of the school.
