Deerfield offers an unmatched environment for growing professionally. As colleagues, we enjoy supporting each other and improving our craft as educators. Near the Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire College, and UMass Amherst), Deerfield’s 300-acre campus hosts exceptional facilities that enable dynamic teaching both in and out of the classroom. Our students are engaging and e...xcited to learn—and they are willing to work hard at their studies. Outside the classroom, they find ways to contribute to the community and enjoy themselves.<
Our teachers are committed to ongoing renewal. We seek candidates who are genuinely committed to their own growth, who are eager to work with colleagues to review the programs we offer, and who can foster critical thinking, empathy, and determination in our students. As a boarding school, our faculty teach, mentor, and model—in the classroom, in the dorm, at the dining hall, on the fields, and in spaces for the arts.
Diversity is essential to Deerfield’s success. Deerfield actively seeks to increase the diversity of its faculty. Diverse perspectives within our school population fuel creative and innovative thinking, build empathy and consideration, and provide varied skills and experiences from which the entire community can benefit. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, religious, ethnic and socioeconomic background.
