What is the High School Spanish Teacher Role?
As a Spanish 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 create a classroom environment that fosters students’ awareness and appreciation of the richness of traditional Hispanic and Latinx language and culture around the world and throughout the United States. You 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, 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 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 and may include courses in Spanish I, Spanish II, Spanish III, and/or Spanish for Spanish Speakers. 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.
Salaries are competitive with local districts, starting at $66k. Commensurate with experience.
