Background on Brooke

Brooke Charter Schools, founded in 2002, are a network of five high-performing public charter schools in Boston. Brooke currently serves 1,899 students in grades K-11 and will grow to serve 2,200 students in grades K-12 by 2023.   

Named after the late Senator Edward W. Brooke, the first African-American popularly elected to the U.S. Senate, our strategy is to focus relentlessly on developing excellent teaching. Reflecting the diversity of the communities we serve in Boston and Chelsea, 56% of Brooke students self-identify as Black, 34% as Latinx, 6% Caucasian, 2% Asian, and 2% Native American or multiracial. About three-quarters of Brooke students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Over the last several years, Brooke students have set a new bar for what is possible in urban public education, consistently outperforming their peers in Boston Public Schools, and producing academic achievement results among the highest in the state.

The Role

We are looking for an Co-Curricular teacher for the Brooke Mattapan campus. The co-curricular teacher will instruct all grade levels in grades, K-7.  The ideal candidate shows self-determination, innovation, creativity, drive and excitement to craft a program of their choosing based on their own creative passions. This can include topics in drama, music, movement, etc. 


  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Minimum of two years of teaching experience preferred (this does not include practicum, student teaching, tutoring, or substitute teaching experience) 
  • Commitment to ensuring academic success for all students
  • Shared dedication to the Brooke philosophy and mission 
  • Good problem solving abilities and creativity
  • Excellent teamwork, communication, and organization skills

The community and students we serve are diverse, and we are committed to reflecting that diversity in our staff. We strive to have the most diverse applicant pool possible; to that end, we encourage individuals of all backgrounds to apply for any position at Brooke Charter Schools. By fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, we provide the best educational experience to prepare our students for a future reflective of the world we live in.
