Our vibrant intellectual community draws students from all over the city. Admission to the school is competitive, and both our parents/guardians and students value achievement and community.
The Berkeley Carroll Middle School seeks an inspirational and passionate humanities teacher for a full-time leave replacement position beginning April 8th, 2024 - end of the academic year. Curiosity, resilience, discernment, empathy, and an abiding interest in the special qualities of middle schoolers--as well as direct teaching experience with this age group--are essential. Our middle school covers grades five through eight.
The humanities program, although heavily reliant on a framework of history and literature, draws widely from religion, philosophy, social science, arts, geography, and ethics to provide context and meaning. At each grade level, the curriculum fosters the growth of skill building ranging from grammar, spelling, and vocabulary to the ability to think analytically and acutely about challenging issues. Teaching responsibilities are two sections of double periods and serving as an advisor. Collaboration, alignment, and reflection are important values for the humanities department and our middle school program.
The BCS middle school values collegiality, an ability to listen, and a commitment to a supportive community that strives to honor diversity in every aspect. Our community is deeply invested in the work of restorative practices, and our faculty are expected to contribute to the ongoing development.

Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to and experience with diversity, equity, or inclusion work are especially encouraged to apply.
