Boston University Academy, Boston, MA
Boston University Academy is seeing a part-time English teacher to teach two sections of 11th grade American Literature for the remainder of the 2021-22 school year. The position would begin in early January or sooner, depending on the candidate’s availability.
The teacher will join a four-person department committed to discussion-based classes, textual analysis, interdisciplinary thinking, and a process approach to writing. The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years of teaching experience, an advanced degree in English or a related field, a student-centered approach, deep and diverse literary interests, and a passion for working with high school students. 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 202 students are curious, capable, and kind. They come from 55 cities and towns in the Greater Boston area. 59% of students identify as students of color. 30% of students are on financial aid — a reflection of BUA’s commitment to equity and access.
To apply, please email a resume, list of references (if available), and cover letter addressed to Dr. Rosemary White, Associate Head of School to firstname.lastname@example.org.
