ABOUT SAINT ANN’S SCHOOL
Since its founding in 1965, Saint Ann’s has embraced a commitment to education for its own sake, oriented to the capacities of each individual student and free of the encumbrances of formal grading, prizes, and rankings. At the same time, we are unabashedly committed to excellence in all that we do. The lives and achievements of our graduates speak powerfully to the potential of an education based on these principles to ignite a passion for learning and to sustain creative energy in every field of endeavor. We accomplish this by offering talented students instruction shaped by inspired and dedicated faculty, who together form a true community of learners.
With a faculty and staff numbering close to 300, and nearly 1100 students, Saint Ann’s is among the largest and most selective independent schools in New York City. Occupying space in seven separate buildings clustered in Brooklyn Heights, Saint Ann’s draws most of its students from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Saint Ann’s is known for its commitment to an education that brings together passionate and talented teachers with gifted and motivated students; Saint Ann’s students excel in academic disciplines and the arts. Our faculty includes authors and scholars, artists, composers, performers, and filmmakers. Our parent body is accomplished, diverse, and committed to the unique educational mission of Saint Ann’s, and our alumni retain profound connections and loyalty to the School.
ASSOCIATE TEACHER POSITION
In preschool through third grade, associate teachers work with head teachers in classrooms of twenty students. In addition to helping their head teacher to run the classroom (leading meetings and activities, assisting with the social and emotional crises of the under-ten set, reading to and reading with the students, cutting, pasting, gluing, refereeing, encouraging), associates are responsible for their own reading group and have the opportunity in the spring to design and teach a curriculum of their choosing. We seek the curious, the artistic, the passionate. We offer generous grants for educational assistance (up to $10,000/year).
