Employment at USN

University School of Nashville's location next to Vanderbilt University and its Peabody College for Teachers reminds us every day of our 102-year-old roots in the demonstration school culture of innovation and educational best practices. It's a vibrant educational community for both students and teachers. 

A deep-rooted culture of achievement at USN means that students expect much of each other, and faculty benefit from that high standard. We seek educators who are enthusiastic about their own learning as well as their students', and we offer many opportunities for professional development.

Our commitment is to provide opportunities for teachers to shape their own progress in the field with the support and guidance of administrators who recognize the arc of a teacher's career. At USN, summer opportunities abound for teachers to attend workshops and create curriculum to further their understanding of best practice and to renew, inspire, and energize themselves.
