The Bronx Lab School has an immediate opening. We actually have the flexibility to hire a history or English teacher for the position. Both positions are pretty amazing opportunities: the history position would be teaching seniors, and would include a senior seminar; the English position would be a senior seminar and 2 sections of 11th Grade English. We are NOT under a hiring restriction, so any NY certified candidate is eligible.
Senior Seminars are a double-time class with complete freedom to choose a topic about which students will be passionate. This class meets daily, in addition to a 4 hour block on Thursdays to allow for weekly field trips. This is an opportunity for a great teacher to create your dream course. We have a really great group of seniors this year who would be a pleasure to teach.
Interested candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume, references, and a cover letter that includes your idea for a senior seminar and an explanation of why you would be a good fit for Bronx Lab.
