PE Teacher & Head Coach

Sterne School seeks a dynamic and inspiring educator to teach Physical Education in our Lower School (grades 4-8) and serve as Head Coach in our after school athletics program. 

Physical Education 
Sterne serves a range of students who bring different attitudes and skill levels to Physical Education. The PE teacher is responsible for developing a creative, engaging, and fun program that promotes physical fitness and cultivates habits that will endure beyond the classroom. Our student body consists of both athletes and students who are reluctant to participate in organized, competitive sports. A PE program that emphasizes team building, problem solving, skill development, and exposes students to a wide range of physical activities is what we need. As a critical member of the Lower School faculty, we seek a PE teacher who will inspire movement and physical activity throughout the program.

After School Athletics
Sterne competes with a number of schools in the Bay Area in a wide range of sports, including team handball, volleyball, futsal, and basketball. We also host intramural sports activities in table tennis, flag football, dodgeball, and running. The Head Coach will be primarily responsible for organizing and coaching the competitive teams. Together with the Athletic Director, the Head Coach will be responsible for recruiting and training athletes, communicating with parents, and maintaining high expectations for behavior and performance across all environments.
