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-gender 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 a full-time, experienced science educator to teach Physical Science in 8th grade and Physics in Upper School classes for the 2020-2021 school year.
A dynamic, team-oriented teacher is sought to join a highly collaborative science department which has an emphasis on individual research, experimentation, and environmental stewardship. The ideal candidate will have the flexibility to teach levels of physics from introductory Physical Science to Advanced Placement Physics. At least three years of teaching experience and a degree in Physics or Science Education are preferred. This position includes the responsibility of maintaining the laboratory space and materials. Browning’s science curriculum emphasizes a solid foundational experience intertwined with individual exploration and research. Browning science teachers typically work with students across divisions, so an affinity for working with boys at different developmental stages is required.
A Browning teacher engages with students beyond the classroom, by advising clubs and affinity groups, leading field trips, and taking part in extracurricular events, as well as leading an advisory group at an assigned grade level.
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.
