Berkeley Carroll is a Pre-K through grade 12 college preparatory school of 970 students located in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn in New York City. Our vibrant intellectual community draws students from all over the city. Admission to the school is competitive, and both our parents and students value achievement.
Berkeley Carroll seeks an experienced teacher/artist to teach the 9th-12th grade drawing and painting sequence. A strong background in those disciplines, and experience in and excitement about teaching them, is essential. Ideal candidates will have an abiding interest in making their own art and in making the world of art alive to students. We are particularly interested in experienced educators who might be interested in taking on a leadership role in the visual arts department.
All candidates should be excited about becoming active members of our school community by advising a group of students, and by guiding a student club or affinity group, shepherding a publication, or coaching a team.
A Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a relevant visual arts field, is required, and a Master’s is preferred.
Berkeley Carroll is committed to an inclusive program and a diverse faculty and student body. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to and experience with diversity, equity or inclusion work are especially encouraged to apply.
Candidates should send a cover letter and resume with a list of references to:
