English Teaching Fellow

Faculty / Full-Time

Boston University Academy, Boston, MA

Boston University Academy is seeking a full-time English Teaching Fellow to begin in July 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 will likely include teaching two sections of English. The teaching fellow will assist with the Writing Center, oversee the school’s partnership with Middlebury Interactive Learning, and contribute to other aspects of independent school life: leading clubs and activities, advising senior theses, 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, deep and diverse literary interests, and a student-centered approach. 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), and cover letter addressed to Dr. Rosemary White, Associate Head of School to buacareers@bu.edu.
