Are you aware of the pervasive inequities that exist in high-quality education? Do youwant to be a part of a solution? Do you believe all children deserve to receive an education that will allow them to compete on a national and global platform? Do you believe a group of dedicated individuals can make a positive impact on a community? If you answered yes to these questions, join our team!
The Bronx Charter School for Children (BCSC) is seeking talented elementary teachers who are passionate about making a significant impact in the classroom at an established independent charter school in the South Bronx's Mott Haven neighborhood. BCSC offers staff the unique opportunity to work in a school that provides substantial resources and support so that teachers may excel, grow and thrive.
Our ideal teacher candidates must have a track record of success in dramatically increasing student performance in schools without selective admissions, a sense of urgency and accountability for student success, and demonstrated expertise in their instructional subject areas. Successful candidates will be those able to work both independently and in teams to continually refine curriculum to maximize student achievement. The ability to work with students one-on-one to address individual learning needs and to use student performance data to drive instructional improvement is essential.
We're different - in important ways - from many other New York City schools. As a standalone school, we're able to focus squarely on our core business - teaching and learning - while preserving our child and family-friendly environment. We're fostering a culture of professional creativity, guided by a new vision for teaching, teacher's roles, and the conditions needed to enable deeper learning for all students. We're able to do this without the distractions and scale-up pressure often associated with a network bureaucracy.
"There is no place I'd rather be a teacher. BCSC has opened my eyes and heart to the fact that our children's lives and future are being shaped and molded here and now."
~Marina Mason (8 years at BCSC)
