Two job positions available in the World Language Department at Padua Academy!

Padua Academy, in Wilmington, Delaware, is actively seeking to fill two positions in their World Language Department beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.  To accommodate their expanding enrollment in language courses, they will be hiring a teacher of Spanish, as well as a long-term substitute position for a teacher of French and Spanish. Should any graduating students be interested in either position, additional information is available on the academy's website:

Padua Academy is a four year Catholic high school for young women that was founded in 1954 by Rev. Joseph L. McCoy, O.S.F.S. and built by the members of St. Anthony of Padua parish. In the early years, members of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia administered and staffed the school. To ensure a continuing tradition in the founding spirit, St. Francis de Sales and St. Francis of Assisi were chosen as the patrons of the school. The school's mission is rooted in the Catholic faith, and offers young women a transformational college preparatory education, challenging them to live Christ-centered lives of leadership and service.
