FOUNDING 11TH GRADE WORLD HISTORY TEACHER - 2018-2019 (BROOKE HIGH SCHOOL)
at Brooke Charter Schools (View all jobs)
Background on Brooke
Brooke Charter Schools opened Brooke High in August of 2016, and we are looking for exceptional educators to add to our founding team, who can help build a strong school culture focused on rigorous academics and developing strength of character.
Founded in 2002, Brooke Charter Schools is a network of college preparatory public schools with five campuses in Boston. Brooke currently serves 1,730 students in grades K-10 and will grow to serve 2,200 students in grades K-12 by 2022.
Named after the late Senator Edward W. Brooke, the first African-American popularly elected to the U.S. Senate, our strategy is to focus relentlessly on developing excellent teaching. Reflecting the diversity of the communities we serve in Boston and Chelsea, 56% of Brooke students self-identify as Black, 34% as Latino, 6% Caucasian, 2% Asian, and 2% Native American or multiracial. About three-quarters of Brooke students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Over the last several years, Brooke students have set a new bar for what is possible in urban public education, consistently outperforming their peers in Boston Public Schools, and producing academic achievement results among the highest in the state.
Teachers who thrive at Brooke High tend to be entrepreneurial instructors and hungry learners who crave frequent, high-quality feedback on their practice. They also have a great deal of passion and expertise in their content area that they are eager to share with students. The 11th Grade World History Teacher will teach up to four sections of 20-30 students in each. The World History curriculum will span content ranging from pre-history to present day.
Each teacher is also responsible for serving as an advisor. Advisors will serve as student mentors and parent communication liaisons for a small single gender group of students. Advisories will meet twice daily; each day will begin with a short check in and end with a 25-minute advisory session. Additionally, advisories will engage in weekly classes designed around college information and character education.
Teachers’ hours are 7:45-4:00 daily, with the student academic day running from 8:00-2:05 on Mondays and 8:00-3:45 on other days. Teachers may elect to lead an after-school extra-curricular club or coach a sport for an additional stipend. In the summer of 2018, new teacher PD will begin on July 16, and the school year will begin in late August.
A successful Brooke High School 11th Grade World History Teacher will ensure that all Brooke scholars feel challenged and known.
- Bachelor’s degree leading to deep knowledge of World History.
- Minimum of two (2) years of teaching experience as a classroom teacher (excluding student teaching, practicum, or international teaching experience)
