Middle School Collaborator (Teacher) for the 23/24 school year
Brightworks School in San Francisco is Hiring World Class Educators
Position: Middle School Collaborator (aka teacher)
Brightworks has been at the cutting edge of learner-driven education since its founding in 2011 and we continue to push the envelope of what is possible in education. We are a school that says “Yes.” You want to send a GoPro to the stratosphere in a weather balloon? Let’s do it! You want to build a sail car and go on a journey down an abandoned railway? Sure thing! You want to investigate how we can help the homeless? Alright, let’s figure it out together! We trust that children are instinctual learners, and we value partnering with them on their educational path. That is why we call our teachers “Collaborators”. To be here is to work side by side lovingly and in full support of the children who populate this place with their dreams, attempts and ideas. We ask Collaborators to think big, improvise, and learn alongside students. By taking the best practices from hands-on, project-based experiential learning, we strive to meet students' needs in a flexible, mixed-age environment that breaks the traditional walls between school and the community outside the classroom. Brightworks is in its twelfth year and currently consists of ~110 students ages 5-18.
Brightworks is seeking experienced candidates for the teaching position of Middle School Collaborator for the 2023/2024 school year. The Collaborator will be responsible for mentoring and designing interdisciplinary projects for a group of 10-12 middle school age students.
