Oakwood School

Oakwood School is a K-12 coeducational day school in North Hollywood, California that opened its doors in 1951. The school has remained faithful to its original mission ever since: to create a diverse educational environment where young people are partners with the adults who teach them and learn from them; where the best means of preparing students for the future is to immerse them in the present; where a healthy learning environment requires joy and humor as well as rigorous intensity; and where students’ intellectual and aesthetic depth – along with their capacity for empathy and moral courage – emerge out of authentic engagement with their teachers, one another, and the world around them.

We are currently seeking an amazing part-time high school debate coach to mentor students in our expanding forensics program. Oakwood participates at local, state, and national circuit tournaments in California and throughout the country. Candidates with significant experience in Public Forum, Policy, and Lincoln-Douglas debate preferred. When travel resumes, major responsibilities include travel to and judging at tournaments (reasonable airfare, hotel, and meal expenses covered). Additionally, the position entails holding weekly practice sessions, planning competition strategy; aiding in research and case building; and assisting with event logistics.

Please forward a resume and brief statement of interest highlighting your TOC, NSDA, and/or other achievements to Sergio Martinez,

Only those selected for an interview will be contacted – no phone calls, please.
