The Blake School seeks a creative 9th-12th Grade English Teacher who
is eager to help students read and write with rigor, insight and
imagination. This is a 1.0 FTE ongoing position starting in the
2022-23 school year. Blake is particularly interested in candidates
who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and
thinking that makes a community strong and empowers students to engage
In their English classes, students learn to develop facility with
language, construct interpretations grounded in close analysis, deepen
their intercultural competence, participate effectively in seminar and
small group discussions and think critically about the perspectives
and narratives that frame the literature we read.
At Blake, teachers collaborate with their colleagues to develop their
practice, design innovative curricula, and create a coherent
experience for students. In addition to classroom instruction, English
teachers confer frequently with each of their students about their
writing, meet with grade level teams, hold semester conferences with
parents, support students within our advisory program and participate
in school initiatives.
The committee will begin the review of applications in December with
the intent of inviting finalists to campus as early as late January.
Blake will typically cover the travel and lodging costs for finalist
candidates visiting from out of town.
