    The program for Associate Teachers offers a full-time teaching position designed for those interested in pursuing a career in education. An Associate Teacher participates fully in the life of a classroom, in the Lower School and the School at large. Throughout the school year, she or he will have opportunities to teach lessons and lead activities, and is part of the planning and presentation of the material. They are encouraged to think creatively and begin to develop their own teaching styles.

    ATs meet regularly with the Assistant Head of the Lower School throughout the year as a group and individually.  Group sessions treat a variety of topics: the emotional and social development of children, single-sex education, the admissions process, classroom management, language arts and mathematics. In individual meetings, ATs reflect upon their experience and assess their progress.

    Opportunities for professional development exist beyond the classroom as well. ATs visit other classes within the school, attend conferences and workshops, or may supervise extracurricular activities. They attend diversity training throughout the year. Brearley provides partial financial assistance for those who are attending graduate school.

    At the end of the program, ATs should feel confident in their ability to teach a group of children, have an understanding of the many ways in which children learn, and have developed a sensitivity toward and an interest in children as individuals. Through their ongoing questions and curiosity about education, Associate Teachers play an essential role in our Lower School.

    We believe that our school is strengthened by the diversity of backgrounds, experiences and points of view which the faculty bring to teaching and learning, and we count on them to create and maintain an atmosphere of honesty, generosity and genuine respect for the thoughts, efforts and feelings of others.  A Brearley teacher loves to teach students who love to learn, and can encourage in them an ability to think critically and creatively, a deep curiosity about the world and a pioneering spirit.

    The Associate Teacher Program is a one-year, full-time position that requires a high degree of professionalism, commitment, and responsibility. Associate Teachers are invited for a second year of teaching at the discretion of the school.  A B.A. or B.S. is required and previous experience with children is highly desirable.

    Founded in 1884, the school is a center of intellectual exuberance, attracting students from across and beyond New York City. Its mission has long combined outstanding academics with an insistence on larger purpose:  we seek to prepare our students for principled engagement in the world.  

    A Brearley teacher loves to teach students who love to learn.  She or he has the wisdom and skill to spark in them a pioneering spirit as well as the ability to think critically and creatively. We count on our faculty to create and maintain an atmosphere of honesty, generosity and genuine respect for the thoughts, efforts and feelings of others.  Many are scholars, artists or athletes. We actively seek to build, nurture and sustain a diverse faculty and student body.

    This position, like many at the school, entails cross-divisional teaching, which is an essential aspect of our program.  We educate our students with a network of teachers who know them for years, who recognize that they flourish in their own time, and who know where the curriculum begins and how it will proceed.  A Brearley education is rooted in ideas and practices that have been developed over time and through thoughtful, deliberate collaboration. We encourage new faculty to bring new ideas and fresh insights that might enhance a strong, beloved foundation.

    The ideal candidate will have a genuine passion for and command of subject matter; a sincere interest in young people and an appreciation for the variety of ways in which they grow and learn; excellent communications skills; fairness, consistency and promptness in evaluating student work and in responding to students’ individual progress; the desire to collaborate; a collegial spirit and a sense of humor; and a commitment to helping students think independently and develop confidence in their own abilities.

    A Brearley teacher also educates students through service in other areas, such as advising a small group of students, for example, guiding a club or chaperoning trips, and attending extracurricular events in which the students take part.

    An undergraduate degree in Physical Education or a related field is required.  The successful candidate will teach in the K-XII PE curriculum and coach two varsity seasons in Middle or Upper School.
