Teaching as leadership. Join the Brooke team.
Brooke teachers are paving the way to shape what makes great teaching and how we as a nation can close the achievement gap. After a competitive application process, our Classroom Teachers take on the challenging role of instructional leaders of their classrooms. Beginning in July, teachers participate in extensive and rigorous professional development where the expectation they set for themselves and their students is 100% mastery. At Brooke, there is a strong culture of excellence fostered among the teaching staff. Brooke teachers are constantly going above and beyond to meet the diverse needs of their students.
