The Boggs School is seeking a full-time, certified classroom teacher for a mixed-age 4th/5th grade class. We are a small, community-based charter school on the east side of Detroit. We are beginning our tenth year of operation and the adminstrators are also the co-founders. The majority of the staff have been here for at least half of the time we've been open and so there is lots of stability, institutional knowledge, collaboration, and support for new teachers. Many staff members say that they love working here because they believe in our mission to nurture creative, critical thinkers, who contribute to the well-being of their communities and because they get the kind of autonomy and voice they had anticipated when finishing ed school. The people who succeed here are hard-working, dedicated, fun-loving, and nerdy!
