 ABOUT TEACHING AT BROOKLYN LAB

Teaching at Brooklyn Lab is unlike teaching in a traditional environment.

Our teachers know the individual strengths and areas for growth of each of their scholars. By design, our schools are small communities where every scholar is known.

Teachers at Brooklyn Lab plan and empower their scholars by deeply understanding scholar data, using our personalized learning platform Cortex and determining group/individual supports for scholars to move towards mastery of grade level content.

In addition to teaching their course(s), our faculty understands the value of collaboration. They share best practices across the network, mentor young educators who serve as Fellows, get and implement feedback from coaches and their instructional lead and work as a team to provide their scholars with a high-quality education.  

LAB is seeking teachers for ELA/Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies for the 6th, 7th and 8th Grades.
