Burke is a co-educational day school for grades 6-12. We emphasize a progressive, student-centered, constructivist approach to education. Along with expertise in their subject matter and skill in their delivery of lessons, we expect teachers to:
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.
We are committed to building a diverse, multicultural faculty. Many teachers and staff serve as advisors for six to eight students. We are always looking for teachers who can enrich Burke’s community outside the classroom, especially by coaching.
