About / Job Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in employment at Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School.

General Inquiries

In keeping with the spirit of our namesake, Kirby is an intellectually stimulating and community-minded school that prepares students to be life-long learners through college and beyond. Our student body of 275 students, grades 6-12, is warm, enthusiastic, and academically oriented, and they often tell us their teachers are the best part of attending Kirby.

Our middle and high school curriculum is a rigorous, college prep program centered on strong academic coursework, including art, theater, digital media, chorus, and student publications. Our emphasis on progressive education includes intensive study paths in the humanities, foreign language, art, and science. Small individual classes averaging just twelve students provide faculty the opportunity to develop strong relationships with students, and ongoing curricular dialogs invite teachers to share research and ideas with colleagues.

If you have a passion for lifelong learning, an interest in encouraging students to take responsibility for their own education, and an openness to the rich, creative work of colleagues from widely different backgrounds, then please consider becoming a faculty member at Kirby.

To apply, send a resume with a cover letter explaining your background and interest in working at Kirby School to employment@kirby.org.

Kirby School seeks diversity in its community and does not discriminate against any employee or applicant because of race, color, citizenship status, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, religion, creed, physical or mental disability, veteran status, marital status, or sexual orientation.

Openings for 2018-19


Kirby School seeks a high school Spanish teacher for the 2018-2019 school year who is capable of teaching Spanish 2 and Spanish 3.

The ideal candidate possesses some or all of the following: a single-subject Spanish teaching credential, an advanced degree in Spanish and/or Education, ample experience in the context of independent and/or public secondary schools, significant experience in a Spanish-speaking culture or setting. This position would constitute 80% of FTE and includes health benefits and a salary base that is competitive with CAIS norms.

Kirby offers small class sizes and a highly collaborative faculty. As we are a 6th-12th grade independent school, the candidate should be comfortable with middle school students–our language classes are blended with 8th and occasionally 7th graders.

Interested and qualified candidates should email Mr. Joseph Poirot at spanishhire@kirby.org. Please attach a cover letter, current resume, and at least two letters of reference.

Kirby’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in our hiring process; people of color and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
