CS teacher opening near NE Maryland

Posted By Dianne O'Grady-Cunniff, Thursday, July 5, 2018

A message from the Principal of Avon Grove High School in southern Chester County (PA) if you know someone who might be interested.


We are expanding our computer related offerings in our Business department and will be adding AP Computer Science in the 2019-2020 school year.  In preparation, we have a full time permanent opening in our department beginning with this school year. 


The purpose of my email is to ask if you know of any teachers who may be looking for such a position?  We currently offer semester length courses in Introduction to Computer Science, C++, Java, and Mobile Apps Development.  In addition to growing our computer science/coding options, the successful candidate will be involved in the planning for a new high school scheduled to open in four years.  We are located adjacent to Cecil County and are within driving distance to many parts of Maryland. 


Please let me know if you know how I else I might be in contact with qualified applicants.  Thank you for your consideration.




Scott DeShong, Principal

Avon Grove High School
