About our School

The Boggs School is a K-8 school that uses a Place-Based model of learning.  Our mission is to nurture creative, critical thinkers who contribute to the well being of their communities.  Our culture attracts educators who are collaborative, loving, knowledgeable, and committed to the school’s mission and its children.

Job Overview

This position is a unique and special opportunity at the Boggs School.  We have partnered with Wayne State University’s Math Corps program to provide robust and rigorous math program that readies our students for high school math.  Currently the curriculum is being taught by professors from WSU.  However, to sustain the program, we are looking for someone to shadow the professors and offer the curriculum full time at our school.  This position would begin in January with a semester of shadowing our excellent professors, a summer of professional development, and then full-time as the Math Corps instructor at our school.  This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who cares deeply about students and quality math instruction.  This position requires at least a three-year commitment to ensure the quality and sustainability of the program.
