Description

Overview

Bridges is a rapidly expanding youth-development program that is committed to the long-term success of Baltimore City youth and to providing life-changing opportunities to independent school students. The program currently serves approximately 650 people per year – 365 Baltimore City youth ages 9-23 and 285 independent school students – through sites at The St. Paul’s Schools (est. 1993), Gilman School (est. 2014), The Bryn Mawr School (est. 2022), and Bridges at McDonogh, which will launch in summer 2024. Teachers who are hired to teach in the program will be hired, contracted, and paid through one of our program location partners – The St. Paul’s Schools.

One of Bridges’ hallmark programs is the Bridges Summer Institute – a five-week, in-person summer program for Baltimore City students in rising grades 4-9. Students begin their 13-year experience with Bridges at the Summer Institute as rising 4th graders and return each summer for six years until they reach high school. The Summer Institute blends education and enrichment, creating an opportunity for Baltimore City students to learn, grow, have new experiences, and develop their interests. The 2024 Summer Institute will run from June 24 through July 26, 2024 (no program on July 4th or 5th).

The Opportunity

Bridges is searching for an 8th grade math teacher, 6th grade art teacher, and a middle school sports/physical education teacher for the Bridges at St. Paul’s Summer Institute. This is an opportunity for excellent teachers to craft their own curriculum, keep students engaged over the summer through teaching and field trip experiences, and build relationships with a special group of young people. Many Bridges summer teachers have returned year after year, maintaining those relationships as they watch the students grow.

The role is seasonal (majority of work conducted over five weeks in the summer) and part-time (25 hours per week on average during the summer), making this a great opportunity for teachers seeking summer employment. During the five-week program, teachers work closely with their students, spending four half-days a week teaching in their subject area and one full day a week chaperoning a field trip. Small class sizes range from 8-15 students with 2-3 high school aged volunteers present to assist in the classroom. Teachers also join weekly staff meetings and assemblies as requested by the Site Director.

Summer teachers will be placed at and employed by one of Bridges’ program sites – St. Paul’s – and report to the Site Director. Before the summer, teachers will need to be in communication with the Site Director and may be asked to participate in one, 45-minute meeting with the Site Director in May or June 2024, as well as one pre-summer all-staff meeting in May or June 2024. Teachers will submit course plans and requests for materials in advance of the Summer Institute.

Compensation starts at $3,500 and is scaled based on experience.
