Run orderly but energetic classes.
Use innovative, developmentally-appropriate classroom activities and assignments designed to engage many types of students.
Include multicultural perspectives in classroom instruction.
Employ appropriate technology in the classroom, especially iPads.
Use our web-based Student Information System to write comments, report cards and post assignments.
Enjoy building curriculum through collaboration with colleagues.
Take pleasure in the company of adolescents.
Be open-minded, patient and maintain a respectful, supportive environment.
Teachers at Burke are an integral part of a lively, informal and inclusive school community; we are committed to building a diverse, multicultural faculty.
