Via Sendhil Revuluri, Math Teacher, Bronx Academy of Letters
The Bronx Academy of Letters, a new, small public high school, is looking for teachers of English, math, chemistry, social studies, Spanish, and special education. We’re looking for diverse, capable, hardworking teachers who will relish the excitement and challenge of being part of a growing school community.
The Bronx Academy of Letters opened in 2003, infusing a rigorous, interdisciplinary, college-preparatory curriculum with literary themes. Currently enrolling ninth and tenth graders, our school will continue to add ninth-grade classes each September until 2006, at which point the school will house about 300 students.
Teachers emphasize literacy and clear writing across all subjects and serve as student advisors. Special assemblies and field trips expose students to New York’s rich literary and publishing world, there is an emphasis on student participation in after-school activities including publications, and writers in residence are on hand to support the faculty.
Please see the call for teachers and the rest of our site for more information. If you are interested, send a résumé and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All positions begin in Fall 2005. All instructors must be certified to teach in New York City. (If you are not yet certified, you may be interested in the New York City Teaching Fellows.
