  • US English/Journalism Teacher

    Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences seeks a dynamic educator to join its innovative Upper School Publications and English departments beginning in the 2022-23 school year.

    The journalism-focused Publications Department classes instill in students best journalistic practices and various skills including reporting and writing, AP style, layout and design, website maintenance, podcast and broadcast. The goal of the program is to empower young journalists to be self-starters and independent workers as they publish digital, print, and broadcast news. To achieve these ends, the journalism teacher is given the freedom to develop the course and program in ways that satisfy both teacher and student needs. Additional direction is provided by the school administration and the Publications Department.

    The English curriculum seeks to instill in students a lifelong love and appreciation of reading, and to teach students to write English that—beyond mere correctness—fluently communicates deeper meanings and values. English teachers offer students the opportunity to study both traditional forms of argument and literary criticism as well as more creative forms of expression, such as personal essays, poems, short stories, journal entries, and interviews. Teachers work with grade-level teams and the department as a whole to create a unified curriculum of reading and writing that also allows for flexibility with teaching instruction and course materials.
