The Browning School is a K-12 boys school located on 62nd Street in midtown Manhattan, New York. Founded by scholar and teacher John A. Browning, The Browning School has been a leader in fostering the intellectual and personal growth of boys and young men since 1888. Serving roughly 400 students in kindergarten through grade 12, Browning strives to combine the best of a traditional prep school environment and curriculum with imaginative teaching and a strong value system – all in a single-sex setting – to foster growth of courageous and compassionate men of intellect and integrity who aspire to contribute meaningfully to our world.
The Browning School seeks an experienced modern language educator to teach four sections of Spanish across the Middle and Upper Schools. There is a possibility that one of the Middle School sections will be with fourth grade boys. Outside the classroom, responsibilities will include advising, collaborating with colleagues on curriculum development, and participating in grade-level outings, admissions events and external field trips.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of three years’ teaching experience, preferably across both middle and upper school divisions. A bachelor’s degree in a world language, education, or a related field is required; a master’s degree is preferred. Native or near-native fluency in Spanish and fluency in English are required.
The Browning School seeks to promote diversity in its hiring process and is committed to building an inclusive community and culturally diverse faculty. The Browning School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, citizenship, marital status, disability, or any other basis.
