Faculty & Staff at Burke
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.
We make it easy for teachers to attend conferences and workshops that help them hone their skills. We also run a comprehensive in-service program every year, in which teachers and staff discuss leadership, social justice, adolescent development, and innovative teaching.
Each summer, Burke's Professional Development Committee awards our Combustion Engine Grants, which enable our faculty to enrich their teaching and curricula in innovative ways. Learn more below!
