The Berkeley Carroll Middle School seeks a dynamic and flexible Humanities Department Co-Chair and Teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.
The ability to flexibly problem-solve, collaborate and plan with one or more teachers and to creatively co-lead a department is essential. The candidate will have opportunities for the customization and personalization of lessons but should be comfortable jumping into an ongoing unit or novel. Humor, flexibility, and experience with technology are imperative.
The Humanities program, although heavily reliant on a framework of history and literature, draws widely from philosophy, social science, arts, geography, religion, and ethics to provide context and meaning. At each grade level, the curriculum fosters the growth of skill-building ranging from grammar, spelling, and vocabulary to the ability to think analytically and acutely about global issues.
This is a unique opportunity to co-lead a large department of dedicated teachers of the Humanities. Please review the specifics of theHumanities Department Co-Chair position and provide a departmental vision statement in addition to the other materials.
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.
Candidates should send a resume, cover letter, references and educational philosophy, and departmental vision statement to firstname.lastname@example.org . No phone calls, please.
