Who we are...

The mission of BASIS Independent Schools is to redefine education by raising the levels of student learning to the highest international standards. Every BASIS Independent school provides a joyful learning community where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary outcomes. In just three years we have established five highly-regarded private schools (PK-12) in some of the world's most dynamic regions: New York City, Silicon Valley, and Northern Virginia, with more campuses opening in the coming years. BASIS Independent is building a team of talented, passionate, and hard-working educators to ensure our students receive the best education in the world. Join us! 

You can expect to...

As a Subject Expert Teacher, you'll spend your time and energy on the subjects you are most knowledgeable and passionate about. You'll prepare one subject-focused lesson for the grade(s) you teach rather than 4 or 5 different lessons every day. This allows you to go deeper in your subject instruction, bring more creativity to your classroom and develop richer lessons that intrigue your students and ignite their interest.  

While driven by the BASIS.ed core curriculum, SETs are given the freedom to do what they do best: inspire a love of learning in every child.

AS a SET, you handle the primary instruction in the classroom and are supported by a Learning Expert Teacher that assists with classroom management and student differentiation so your students are engaged and on task 100% of the time.  

  • SETs: BASIS Primary Subject Expert Teachers (SETs) are knowledgeablepassionate elementary teachers that believe that with the right support and encouragement, any child can excel. We hire elementary school teachers with academic degrees or an educational emphasis in the disciplines they teach. BASIS Elementary subject expert teachers are able to focus their teaching on a specific subject rather than preparing lessons for several subjects every day. They work collaboratively with Learning Expert Teachers (LETs) to cultivate a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and where intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary student outcomes. At the elementary level, LETs help you focus on instruction while they customize education to meet the individual differentiation needs of each student. Subject Expert Teachers in the BASIS elementary model will have a specific focus in either Math and Science, Humanities and Language Arts, Mandarin, Engineering and Visual or Performing Arts. As a SET, it is primarily your responsibility to develop engaging, content-rich subject specific lesson plans and to teach creative thinking and problem solving.

Qualifications...

Minimum Qualifications: A Bachelor's degree and ability to obtain a valid fingerprint clearance. In addition to a Bachelor's degree, a major (24-30 credit hours) or advanced degree in the teaching subject fulfills the highly qualified requirement. Highly qualified teacher requirements vary by state. In some cases a Bachelor's degree and documentation of passage of a state authorized subject test in the teaching area may fulfill the highly qualified requirement. Coursework or experience in education is not required, nor is certification.

Preferred Qualifications: Subject matter postgraduate work (Master's or Ph.D.) is preferred. Together with a high level of educational attainment, a successful applicant will demonstrate strong communication skills in teaching ideas, texts, and concepts with precision and confidence. Critically, an applicant must possess a high GPA in his/her major, excellent recommendations, experience working with children, not necessarily in the classroom, and be open to new ideas in teaching.
