Teaching at The Booker School

As a small school, The Booker School is looking for teachers who excel in their profession. We are looking for creative, compassionate and collaborate educators who align with the school's Guiding Statements.

We believe that teachers are the lead-learners in the classroom. We are a small community and building relationships with students, parents and fellow faculty members is crucial to a role in our school. 

We consistently review our Educational Program and applicants should be comfortable recording and communicating learning through online platforms. 

In our commitment to creating an inclusive environment that values equity, diversity and inclusion, we welcome a broad spectrum of qualified candidates. Applicants are welcome to self-identify on your cover letter or resume.

"Our family is so grateful for the faculty at The Booker School. The teachers know our child so well, and with this understanding, they do so much to nurture his continuous growth as both a learner and a community member. The teachers encourage a love of learning that extends well beyond the classroom, and our child looks forward to going to school every day." 

"The faculty at TBS has been phenomenal. Coming from a homeschool/unschooling background, we (child and parents) were unsure how the transition to a more formal, away-from-home school would work.  But the teachers at TBS have shown the utmost care and consideration for our kid and her particular learning needs. We have a deep appreciation for the pedagogical approaches of the teachers at Booker. Their ability to introduce a broad variety of types of learning for all students is remarkable. All students are required to participate in activities. They may not be naturally inclined to do, but in the end you see them all learning from it."
