Brooke Charter Schools is a network of five public charter schools serving grades K-12 in Mattapan, Roslindale, and East Boston. At Brooke, we coach and invest in our teachers so that they can help our students shatter the achievement gap and graduate from college. Our students thrive because they are challenged and known.
What is the High School History & Literature Teacher Role?
As a History & Literature teacher at Brooke High School, you set the tone for growth, learning, and teamwork. It’s for our kids; nothing less than the best will do when you’re helping students succeed.
You are the leader of your classroom and build strong relationships with students in order to push them to be their best selves both academically and personally. You crave feedback, think deeply about instruction to ensure student mastery of critical college-level reading and writing skills, and collaborate with colleagues in order to meet the needs of every student. To that end, you will take part in regular data meetings, engage in approximately 20 administrative observations and 15 peer observations, and participate in nearly 300 hours of professional development over the course of the school year.
Hours for this role are 7:45 am-4:00 pm daily. You will partner with one other History & Literature teacher to refine and teach the entire curriculum in reading, social studies, and writing. You will teach 2 groups of 9th or 10th grade students for a total student load of 45-60 students; this low student-load is designed to allow teachers to maximize feedback to students on their writing about both history and literature. You will also serve as an advisor; advisors mentor students, communicate with families, and share information about colleges and character education. You may choose to lead an after-school club or coach a sport for an additional stipend.
