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 learning environment draws students from all over the city. Admission to the school is competitive and both our parents and students value achievement and community.
We seek an experienced English/humanities teacher to join our faculty. This person will teach two sections of our 9th grade Myths & Legends course and other courses as needed. The ideal candidate will have at least two years of relevant teaching experience, strong content knowledge, a particular interest in writing instruction, and a love of teaching high school students. Since many of the courses we offer are interdisciplinary and cross-listed with the history department, and since a section of 9th grade Modern World History may be available, candidates with interest in and experience teaching history and the humanities more broadly are encouraged to apply. Strong candidates will be interested in becoming active members of our school community by advising a group of students and by guiding a student club, shepherding a publication, or coaching a team.
Berkeley Carroll is committed to creating an environment that includes a diversity of perspectives and to cultivating an equitable, inclusive learning community in which everyone has a true sense of belonging. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to, and experience with, diversity, equity, or inclusion work are especially encouraged to apply.
The Berkeley Carroll School is an independent, nonsectarian, coed pre-kindergarten through 12th Grade day school in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
