Our vibrant intellectual community draws students from all over the city; admission to the school is competitive, and both our parents and students value academic excellence.
The Berkeley Carroll School seeks a full time Upper School science teacher for the 2019-2020 academic year. The ideal candidate would have several years experience teaching chemistry and at least one other scientific discipline and would feel excited about teaching at a variety of grade levels.
Candidates should be able to combine exciting, original ideas with a rigorous analytical approach that will motivate all students to see the importance of both practical and theoretical science while at the same time providing them with sufficient background to pursue scientific studies at university and beyond. We expect our science teachers to be prepared to design curriculum, eager to collaborate with a team of committed teachers, and excited to have a voice in departmental and curricular decisions from day one.
Candidates should have at least a Bachelor’s degree in a scientific discipline and should have several years teaching experience.
Strong candidates will also be interested in being active members of our school community, including involvement in student life: as a grade advisor, leader of a student club or affinity group, advisor to a publication, or the coach of a team.
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.
