Great teachers make a great school.
Great teachers. We define them as enthusiastic, intelligent people, who know their subjects, truly like young people and like to teach. Burroughs gives teachers considerable autonomy in their classrooms; provides them with opportunities for professional development; and rewards them for pedagogical excellence. Finding great teachers is a priority at Burroughs, because as we see it, teachers are what make our school great.
Burroughs offers salaries competitive with the top independent schools in the country. Salary advancement is based on performance and workload. Benefits include life, dental, medical and disability insurance; TIAA retirement; and substantial tuition remission for faculty children.
We look to college contacts; local schools; faculty, parent and alumni contacts; professional organizations; and search consultants to help us find qualified candidates. Job openings are posted on the web site of the Independent Schools of St. Louis.
