Business and Entrepreneurship Teacher

Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy is a pluralistic Jewish day school for students in grades 6-12. Located in Bryn Mawr, PA (metropolitan Philadelphia), Barrack is the premier Jewish day school in the Delaware Valley, attracting students from Philadelphia and its suburbs, Allentown, New Jersey, and Delaware. The school integrates a comprehensive and rigorous college preparatory curriculum with the teaching of essential Jewish and American values and texts. Guided by our four Derech Eretz values of Honor, Moral Courage, Kindness, and Community, Barrack values diversity, celebrates the richness of Judaism's language, culture, and history, and is strongly connected to Israel. Barrack prepares future leaders of the American, Jewish, and global communities who work for a better world through acts of justice and compassion. 

Barrack Hebrew Academy is expanding its curriculum and programs and is seeking a student-centered, engaging, creative educator to teach, design, and develop curriculum and programs in the areas of Business and Entrepreneurship. The candidate will have the opportunity to imagine and build a new unique program within our overall Upper School offerings (in addition to their required coursework, students can choose to focus on STEAM, Business and Entrepreneurship, or Art beginning in 2023) which exposes interested students to course material and experiences within these areas while also providing opportunities for focused-learning and projects as students matriculate in our school. For the 2023-2024 school year, foundational courses will be taught in the 9th and 10th grades, with additional courses being added in the upper school in subsequent years. Additionally, relevant elective courses will be offered to upper school and middle students. The teacher will also be the club advisor for DECA, a nationwide business program that is already a part of our school. 

This is a great opportunity for an educator who wishes to deeply engage with and inspire students while building a program that supports students in developing their passions and exploring further their areas of interest. The ideal candidate will mentor our students within an environment dedicated to skill-development, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and teamwork, alongside every student’s personal growth and the development of one’s individual passions within the areas of Business and Entrepreneurship.

In addition to overall leadership of the program and courses, the appropriate candidate equally enjoys working with middle and high school students and teaching and mentoring students of all levels and backgrounds.

The ideal candidate will have a background, experience, and/or educational training in Business/Entrepreneurship/Economics/Education or relevant areas and be able to engage students around a wide variety of topics, which may include the basics or foundational elements of budgeting, marketing, leadership, economics, product development, basic finance, or a range of other areas. The candidate will have a passion for teaching students to think resourcefully, critically, creatively, and ethically. The use of case studies and project-based learning should supplement and bolster all traditional content so that students will feel eager and excited to apply their learning to the “real world.”   

Responsibilities of the role include, but may not be limited to:

  • Envision and manage the launch of the Business and Entrepreneurship program 
  • Curriculum design and development of Business and Entrepreneurship courses
  • Teach core courses as well as elective courses
  • Engage students within the Institute and elective courses as well as via clubs or extracurricular opportunities 
  • Create educational opportunities for students through outreach and partnerships in the  community 
  • Plan Business and Entrepreneurship related trips and events

Desired skills, experience, and education:

  • Degree in Business, Education, History and/or relevant experience in a related area or discipline
  • Minimum of 3 years of teaching experience alongside an understanding of  project-based instruction and experiential education
  • Ability to present complicated concepts to diverse audiences within a student-centered environment
  • Ability and excitement to connect and teach students on both the high school and middle school levels

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and resume to [email protected]
