Full Time

3rd Grade General Studies Teacher, Boys Division

Torah Academy Brookline MA

Torah Academy is more than a school. We are a community built around joyous, authentic Yiddishkeit and genuine care for every child. We are a community where every family is valued and where student successes are recognized and celebrated by everyone. At Torah Academy, education is about more than just academics. It’s also about fostering Jewish pride, love for learning, and sensitivity to others. And mostly it’s about our students knowing that they, as individuals, matter.

Torah Academy is a preK-8 school that has been in the Boston area for 40 years. We foster a supportive professional environment, including extensive professional development, growth, and advancement opportunities. Our students spend the mornings studying and celebrating Kodesh, including Hebrew, Torah, and Jewish laws and customs. In the afternoons students engage in general studies according to their grade level. Because of the intense nature of the morning curriculum our students are pretty sophisticated in their thinking. We are seeking general studies teachers to match that level of rigor in their content areas. Our general studies curriculum is modeled after the public school frameworks, so familiarity with grade level secular academic expectations is a big plus. Torah Academy contains a boys division and a girls division; students are separated by gender starting in first grade.

We are currently seeking a 3rd grade general studies teacher for our boys division.
