 About John Burroughs School

Founded in 1923, John Burroughs School (jburroughs.org) is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 7-12 located on a 49-acre campus in suburban St. Louis, Missouri. Burroughs currently has 660 students, 47% of whom identify as students of color. Twenty-five percent of the student body receives tuition aid.

Burroughs strives to instill the joy of living through active learning, integrity, and service to others. We seek to cultivate an inclusive community that nurtures authentic learners who lead and inspire meaningful lives. At Burroughs, we do so by loving and learning from our differences, embracing challenges and championing growth, fostering a culture of great expectations, teaching empathy and the power of service, and offering a balanced and broad experience. Faculty, parents, and students share a commitment to a liberal arts education that strikes a balance among academics, arts, athletics, and activities. We believe that the many dimensions of diversity, equity, and inclusivity are essential to excellence in education, and they are woven into the fabric of the Burroughs experience.

In addition to their teaching and departmental responsibilities, faculty members are expected to participate in the larger life of the school (e.g., attending morning assembly, supervising a lunch table, and advising students). Teachers are also expected to coach or provide leadership in co-curricular areas (e.g., service learning, DEI work, student clubs, or student publications).

  • A degree in mathematics
  • Strong interpersonal skills

  3. Current resume, including phone number and email address
  4. Names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three references 

Files will be reviewed as received with preference given to candidates whose materials are submitted by February 15, 2023.

After reviewing all applications, Chris Front, assistant head of school for academic affairs, and Nicole Randall, chair of the mathematics department, will speak with a select group of applicants over Zoom. Our hope is to complete those Zoom interviews by mid-March. From that group, three to four candidates will be invited to Burroughs for a school day in late March or early April, during which they will teach a class, interview, spend time with students and faculty, and have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with our campus and community.

Opportunity Description

John Burroughs School is seeking Middle/Upper School Teaching Fellows to begin in 2023-2024 school year. The Teaching Fellows Program is a full-time, two-year program designed for recent college graduates or individuals completing an advanced degree who are interested in beginning careers in independent-school education. The fellows program is founded on the belief that the best teacher training is rooted in practicing the art of teaching and studying educational theory.

Practicing the Art of Teaching

Teaching fellows will be paired with a mentor — a veteran JBS teacher in their subject area — who will observe, guide, advise, and support them throughout the two-year program. Additionally, fellows and mentors meet regularly with the director of the fellows program. First-year fellows will teach two sections, allowing ample time to meet and collaborate with their mentor, observe classes, shadow students, and take part in all aspects of the life of the school community. During the second year of the program, fellows will increase their teaching load by adding a third section or another commensurate teaching responsibility. Fellows will gain additional experience and solidify community connections by co-sponsoring a student activity or coaching sports, hosting a lunch table, monitoring the student commons, chaperoning student events, co-advising students in their second year, chaperoning school-sponsored trips (international and/or outdoor), and substituting for colleagues in their department. 

Studying Educational Theory

Burroughs is a member of a small consortium of independent schools that take part in the University of Pennsylvania’s Independent School Teaching Residency Program (ISTR). Interested fellows will pursue a two-year Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) at Penn’s Graduate School of Education during their tenure. The innovative curriculum is taught by a combination of GSE faculty and veteran educators from cohort schools. 

Ideal candidates will

  • Have majored in the subject matter they seek to teach and be excited to share their passion for the study of that discipline with their students. 
  • Be enthusiastic about working with middle and upper school students both inside and outside of the classroom.  
  • Be eager to learn from and collaborate with their mentor and other colleagues.
  • Be ready to contribute to Burroughs’ ongoing commitment to advancing a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all members of the Burroughs community. 

Prior teaching experience is not required, though experience working with teenagers is a plus. Applicants whose experience will enable them to make significant contributions to extracurricular activities and/or athletics will be given special consideration. Special attention will also be given to applicants who have participated in campus affinity or cultural resource groups and/or been actively involved in school DEI initiatives or programs. 

Compensation

Fellows receive a $26,000 salary; year-round housing with other fellows in one of two homes located on campus grounds, and a complete benefits package. Burroughs will also pay 80% of the tuition for fellows who enroll in the ISTR program. 

Application Process

Interested candidates should submit the following documents electronically to Friederike Wykes: fwykes@jburroughs.org.

  1. Cover letter stating interest in and qualifications for the position. 
  2. Current resume, including phone number and email address.
  3. College transcripts
  4. Names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three references.

While we will continue to accept applications until the positions are filled, files will be reviewed as received with preference given to candidates whose materials are submitted by February 1, 2023.

After reviewing all applications, Chris Front, Assistant Head of School for Academic Affairs and Kate Ward, Director of the Fellows Program, will speak to a select group of applicants by phone. From that group, finalists will be invited to Burroughs for a school day in late February during which they will be interviewed, have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with our campus, and meet with department chairs, students, faculty, and administrators, including but not limited to the Head of School, the Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity, and the grade-level principals.

MISSION STATEMENT

New City School inspires children to engage joyfully in learning and achieve academic excellence while cultivating their personal strengths and passions. We empower our students to build community and advocate for a more just and equitable world.

OVERVIEW

New City School, located in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, is a leading, progressive independent school for approximately 300 students ages three through grade six. Our teachers provide an education that is challenging yet developmentally appropriate and supportive, as they work to empower and encourage children to be active and engaged learners. The teaching and learning environment at New City is rooted in child development and our faculty themselves are learners, constantly searching for ways to improve their practice. 

 

New City School was founded in 1969 by a group of families who dreamed of a unique school that would provide opportunities for a diverse group of children and adults to learn together, to be creative, and to develop a sense of independence and confidence. Since its founding, New City School has remained true to the vision of its founders and the school continues to be a place of innovation and unlimited possibilities. It is a place that considers the needs of children first, a place that is built on a commitment to diversity, and a place that brings children, parents and teachers together in a community of joyful learning. Importantly, in the St. Louis region and among local independent schools, New City is considered a leader with regard to its diverse community, programs, and culture. The latest iteration of strategic planning for the school includes goals for the school to retain that leading position into the future.  

 

THE ROLE OF THE DIRECTOR

Reporting directly to the Head of School and as a member of the highly collaborative Senior Administrative Team, the Director of Diversity, Equity and Community will help provide strategic leadership and vision for all members (students, faculty and staff, families, Trustees, alumni) of the New City School community.

  • Represent New City School’s vision at local, regional and national conferences related to equity and social justice education
  • Lead the annual New City School Summer Teaching Institute for Teachers of Color

  • Plan and execute on new and existing organizational-wide DEIJ initiatives, professional development, policies, and systems to foster diversity, equity, inclusivity, and justice across the community

Student and Family Support

  • Strategically create and support affinity groups for members of our community
  • Partner with the Director of Enrollment Management to assist in the admissions and enrollment process and ensure that our students and families reflect and support a diverse, equitable, inclusive and justice-driven school community                                                                                                                                             

Curriculum and Instruction

  • Partner with Division Heads and teachers to develop and support an inclusive and progressive curriculum that encompasses the content, concepts, and skills that students need related to diversity, justice, and cross-cultural competency, grounded in an understanding of child development and identity development for all New City students
