Burke teachers love our kids. Ask any of them and they’ll tell you that’s why they choose to contribute their talents at Burke. They enjoy the challenge of managing, and celebrating, a classroom full of complicated and fascinating young adults.
Teachers have the autonomy to design their own curriculum using the most effective practices and methodologies. Our teachers actively seek out time to collaborate with their colleagues; they learn from each other and co-create interdisciplinary units that test students’ ability to think critically.
Each year, Burke's faculty and staff all participate in professional growth tracks: year-long trainings and workshop series, facilitated by faculty members. In 2019-20, those tracks were Adolescent Development, Cultural Competency, Social Justice Pedagogy, and Teaching & Learning.
We make it easy for teachers to attend conferences and workshops that help them hone their skills and run a comprehensive in-service program every year. In 2020, Burke also partnered with Global Online Academy to provide professional development around creating courses and building strong relationships in a virtual space.
