Category: Teaching
Type: English
Status: PartTime
Job Description/Responsibilities:
The Blake School seeks a creative 9th-12th grade English teacher who is eager to help students read and write with rigor, insight and imagination. We believe students learn by doing: they read, write, discuss, reconsider, iterate. In their English classes, students learn to develop facility with language, construct interpretations grounded in close analysis, deepen their intercultural competence, participate effectively in seminar and small group discussions, and think critically about the perspectives and narratives that frame the literature we read.
Minimum Degree: BA
Certification Required: No
Minimum Experience: 3-5 Years

At Blake, teachers collaborate with their colleagues to develop their practice, design innovative curricula and create a coherent experience for students. In addition to classroom instruction, English teachers confer frequently with each of their students about their writing, meet with grade level teams, hold semester conferences with parents, support students within our advisory program and participate in school initiatives. This position reflects four sections for the fall semester (August 2019 through December 2019). It is not benefits-eligible. Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes a community strong and empowers students to engage across differences.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications immediately. Blake will typically cover the travel and lodging costs for finalist candidates visiting from out of town.
