Digital Arts Teaching Fellow

Staff / Full-Time

Boston University Academy, Boston, MA

Boston University Academy is seeking a full-time Digital Arts Teaching Fellow to begin in August 2024. Teaching fellowships are generally two-year positions and offer relatively new teachers opportunities for experience, mentorship, and professional growth. Teaching fellows teach a reduced course load. Primary responsibilities for this position include teaching two to three sections of visual art, with an emphasis on digital art, graphic design, and digital photography; the ability to teach non-digital drawing and painting is a plus. The teaching fellow will assist with art club, curation of student work, open studio hours, and other visual-art-related school events, as well as potentially advising the yearbook. Like all teachers, teaching fellows also contribute to other aspects of independent school life: leading clubs and activities, chaperoning trips, and possibly coaching. The fellowship features opportunities to observe other teachers, be observed, discuss teaching practice, and potentially engage in graduate work at BU – taking advantage of the University’s generous tuition remission policy. The teaching fellow reports to the Associate Head of School.

The ideal candidate will have at least 1-3 years of teaching experience, a degree in a related field, a student-centered approach, and deep content knowledge. For all positions, we look for candidates who enjoy working with colleagues in a collaborative environment, who are flexible and creative, who will fully engage in the life of the school, and who are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable community.

As the only high school in New England that is part of a major research university, Boston University Academy (BUA) offers students who love learning both a traditional, caring independent school experience and access to a broad range of university courses. In the eleventh and twelfth grades, students follow their passions by regularly completing up to twelve courses from Boston University’s undergraduate curriculum. The school’s 233 students are curious, capable, and kind. They come from 55 cities and towns in the Greater Boston area. 56% of students identify as students of color. 30% of students are on financial aid — a reflection of BUA’s commitment to equity and access.

Boston University’s generous benefits package includes health, dental, life insurance, and paid time off. Full-time employees are also eligible for tuition remission for graduate work at Boston University, and remission extends to dependents as well. For more details on benefits, please refer to the Boston University benefits page here.

To apply, please send a resume, list of references (if available), a link to a portfolio of personal and/or student work, and cover letter addressed to Dr. Rosemary White, Associate Head of School, to
