Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan is seeking a long-term substitute teacher to teach Honors and AP Biology courses for the first quarter of the 2017-18 school year.

Catholic Central High School:

Catholic Central High School is rich in both history and tradition. Founded in 1906 by Bishop Henry Richter and the Dominican Sisters, it is the oldest Catholic, coeducational, diocesan high school in the U.S. It draws and benefits from a culturally diverse student body of 645 students, grades 9-12.   Since being established, over 20,000 students have graduated, many of whom still serve our community today.   In its 110-year history, Catholic Central has maintained its mission to challenge students to know and love God, seek knowledge and truth, respect the dignity of each person, and contribute to society through leadership and service.

Science Department:

Guided by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, students will develop an understanding of what science is, what science can and cannot do, and how science contributes to the culture of our society. Through a “minds-on,” experiential approach, students will become familiar with modes of scientific inquiry, rules of evidence, ways of formulating questions, and strategies for explanations. Students will practice applying both moral and ethical principles when evaluating advances in technology, the role of science in society, and personal decision-making.
