Associate Teacher Middle School English Language Arts Social Studies for Brooke Charter School Network in Boston, MA

Associate Teacher Middle School English Language Arts Social Studies

Brooke Charter School Network - Boston, MA - Full time

The Associate Teacher Role

Each year, we seek to recruit 20-30 Associate Teachers into our network. Associates are paired with mentor teachers and receive intensive professional development including weekly seminars focused on the fundamentals of classroom management, daily observations of highly skilled teachers, and frequent coaching conversations. Associates begin their Brooke experience with nearly a month of full-time professional development. Once school starts, Associates spend most of their time observing lead teachers and gradually take on an increasing amount of classroom management through leading small portions of instruction. By the spring, adequately progressing Associates teach for a full period each week. Like all Brooke staff, Associates receive frequent feedback: in addition to near daily coaching conversations with their mentors, Associates receive formal evaluations at the end of each month based on detailed rubrics that outline essential skills and a mastery timeline.

Associate Teacher - Middle School English Language Arts/Social Studies

This is an ideal position for individuals who have limited experience leading their own class, but who are looking for a rigorous and supported teaching position that provides opportunities to work intensely with middle school students (grades 6-7). Our goal is to provide sufficient experience, professional development, and mentorship to prepare our Associate Teachers to become lead teachers. Middle School Associate Teachers:

  • are paired with an elementary mentor teacher for a year-long apprenticeship in great teaching
  • participate in targeted professional development, data review, and co-planning sessions
  • provide one-on-one tutoring; help with lesson planning and curriculum preparation; and ultimately lead their own classes and lessons


  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Dedication to ensuring academic success for all students
  • Commitment to pursue a role in teaching
  • Shared commitment to Brooke’s philosophy and mission
  • Good problem-solving abilities and strong internal locus of control
