Middle School Humanities Teacher
Berkeley Carroll is a Pre-K through grade 12 college preparatory school of 968 students located in the Park Slope section of New York City. Our vibrant intellectual community draws students from all over the city, admission to the school is competitive, and both our parents and students value achievement.
The Berkeley Carroll Middle School seeks an inspirational and passionate teacher for a position teaching sixth grade in the Humanities Department for 2017-18. Middle school students bring ebullience and joy as well as their unique perspectives to school every day. Their teachers likewise show up with abundant stamina, humor and an abiding interest in growing both students and curriculum. Collegiality, an ability to listen and a commitment to personal and professional growth in a supportive community that strives to honor diversity in every aspect are essential qualities.
The Humanities program, although heavily reliant on the framework of history and literature, draws widely from religion, philosophy, the social sciences, arts, geography and ethics to provide enriching context and meaning. Although the position is currently set for sixth grade, long-term flexibility and comfort with teaching grades five through eight ensures flexibility and growth for every department member. Ideally, candidates should have an advanced degree and several years experience with middle school.
Berkeley Carroll is committed to an inclusive program and a diverse faculty and student body. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to and experience with diversity, equity or inclusion work are especially encouraged to apply.
Candidates should send a resume, cover letter, references and teaching statement to: James Shapiro, Middle School Director, email@example.com.
