George Fox University is seeking applicants with a strong teaching background and robust educational knowledge who desire to be part of dynamic Teacher Preparation Programs by supporting teacher candidates as they work through their edTPA.  The School of Education at George Fox University invites interested individuals who are enthusiastic about working with an educational community where faculty encourage students to achieve their highest intellectual and personal potential to apply for part- time adjunct faculty positions.  Successful candidates will work alongside tenure-track faculty, as they lead a small group of students through the edTPA tasks.  Individuals with a minimum of three years teaching experience and a teaching license are encouraged to apply. Responsibilities include:  attending edTPA training, working with a team of tenured teachers to help candidates as they navigate the edTPA tasks, supervising students on weekdays during their student teaching practicum, and mentoring them as they transition from Teacher Candidate to novice teacher.

Professors teach all truth as God's truth, integrating all fields of learning around the person and work of Jesus Christ, bringing the divine revelations through sense, reason, and intuition to the confirming test of Scripture. All applicants must express a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and express their Christian testimony in a local church. In addition, professors agree to live in agreement with the Community Lifestyle Statement and affirm the theological commitments expressed in the Statement of Faith. Individuals who would fit this profile are encouraged to apply for current openings in our faculty.
