9th Grade Composition Teacher

Brooke Charter School Network - Boston, MA - Full time

The Role & Responsibilities

The 9th grade composition teacher will guide BHS freshman through an in-depth study of grammar with the goal of ensuring high quality writing in all academic courses that follow. Additionally, the Composition 9 teacher will instruct students how to craft strong paragraphs and essays that communicate a clear point. Depending on writing level, some students will take Composition 9 as a semester-long course and others will enroll in the class for a full year.

Each teacher is also responsible for serving as an advisor. Advisors will serve as student mentors and parent communication liaisons for a small single gender group of students. Advisories will meet twice daily; each day will begin with a short check in and end with a 25-minute advisory session. Additionally, advisories will engage in weekly classes designed around college information and character education.

Teachers’ hours are 7:45-4:00 daily, with the student academic day running from 8:00-2:05 on Mondays and 8:00-3:45 on other days. Teachers may elect to lead an after-school extra-curricular club or coach a sport for an additional stipend. In the summer of 2018, new teacher PD will begin on July 16, and the school year will begin in late August.

A successful Brooke High School 9th Grade Composition Teacher will ensure that all Brooke scholars feel challenged and known.
