BHSEC seeks faculty members who are well-trained in their discipline and care deeply about the growth and development of their students, and who possess varied interests and talents outside their classroom subject to add to the overall strength of our program. Though BHSEC is primarily a teaching institution, we encourage active scholarship among our faculty. While the challenges of remaining an active researcher BHSEC are real, this work is an important component of the professional life of our faculty and directly affect classroom teaching.
BHSEC believes in offering professional development opportunities for its teachers and staff members to learn both from their colleagues as well as from programs held outside the school. Subject matter colloquia are held on a regular basis with faculty from ard College, Bard College at Simon;s Rock, and other Bard programs.
New BHSEC teachers are afforded the opportunity to participate in an extensive orientation process that introduces them to the school and its culture. In addition to introductory meetings with department heads, administrators, and the full staff in the late summer and early fall, new faculty members with fewer than two years teaching experience are paired with mentor teachers to support and guide them through their first year at BHSEC.
