Position title
Athletic Director and PE Teacher

PT/ FT:  Full Time

School:   Overbrook School

Level:     Preschool – 6th Grade

The Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation (also known as the “Nashville Dominicans”) own and operate two private Catholic schools on the Dominican Campus in Nashville – Overbrook School and St. Cecilia Academy.
