  • Middle School Bible Teacher

    The Middle School Bible teacher will teach Bible classes to students in grades 5-8. The curricula for 5th/6th grades and 7th/8th grades are on two-year loops, so this teacher will have two preparations. River Oaks Baptist School structures its curriculum around the integration of the 6 C’s of 21st century learning: critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, cross-cultural competency, and character. All classrooms are equipped with Promethean boards and all students use a tablet PC all day, every day, so a successful candidate will demonstrate innovative technology use to support the curriculum. In addition to technology integration, the ideal candidate must demonstrate a commitment to student-centered learning and current pedagogies, including project-based learning and design thinking.

    This teacher must be organized and have the ability to handle fast-moving, complex classroom activities and a sensitive subject area. ROBS students come from many different religious backgrounds, both Christian and non-Christian. The Bible teacher will need to be comfortable teaching Biblical truths from an ecumenical Christian perspective and handling complex questions from students with grace and respect for each child’s family. We are looking for a teacher who is enthusiastic about teaching students how to study the Bible and who loves working with middle school students with the challenges and joys that this age group presents. The teacher will also act as an advisor, leading an advisory program which includes a character and spiritual development component as well as home base responsibilities. The teacher will also serve on a grade-level team and lead a 7th/8th grade activity.

    This teacher is supported by the Spiritual Life curriculum coordinator and an instructional-focused division head. As with all faculty openings, the School seeks candidates eager to support our mission of preparing students to meet life’s challenges and lead tomorrow’s world through a superior educational program undergirded by faith in Jesus Christ and Christian principles.

Because Christian spiritual education is central to our mission, ROBS only hires employees who profess the Christian faith. ROBS does not discriminate in hiring on the basis of race, color, gender, age, disability, ethnicity, or national origin.
Our teachers never stop shaping themselves into better educators. Through faculty grants, our instructors are given the opportunity to enhance their teaching repertoire during the summer months. They go on journeys of discovery, take workshops, study under veteran instructors, and delve deeper into the subjects they teach.

These grants have strengthened our faculty in tremendous ways. American History teacher Barbara Luengas explored the beaches of Normandy and other monumental WWII sites. Art teacher Katie Coleman made the pilgrimage to Rome, Florence, and Venice to study masterpieces of the Renaissance. Theater Arts teacher Susan Draper attended the Meisner Teacher Training Program at the True Acting Institute in Oregon. In Prague, third grade teacher Lisa Gilmore and Lower School Librarian Christa Pryor discovered new ways to incorporate creativity into our curriculum. So how would you like to grow as a teacher?

Faculty grants are generously underwritten by the Carrabba family and funds raised by each eighth grade class.
Located in Houston, Texas, River Oaks Baptist School is a private, Christian, co-educational day school for students in preschool, lower school, and middle school. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, Christian character education, competitive athletics, fine and performing arts, and a wide selection of extra-curricular activities.
