SCDS teachers not only love teaching, they love teaching here. Our community is made up of dedicated educators and administrative team members who harness the power of inquiry, embrace mistakes, and focus on educating the whole child.

We encourage you to think about these questions during your application process: How have you supported children through failure or perceived failure in the classroom? How do you think being part of a gifted community enhances social and emotional learning? In which ways has an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion impacted your teaching experiences?

Please see below for current employment opportunities and application instructions. We thank you for your interest in Seattle Country Day School and look forward to reviewing your application.
