Faculty Openings

Bishop Dunne Catholic School provides a model college preparatory Catholic education with technology integration in a diverse school environment. In recent surveys and parent discussions, parents have told us they choose Bishop Dunne for its Catholic identity, rigorous education, college preparation, diverse and inclusive community, and family-like atmosphere.

Therefore, we want teachers who are passionate about their subject matters of expertise and understand their primary role in assuring students’ learning and mastery of subject matter and college preparatory skills. As a result, we seek ways for our students not just to be exposed to our subjects; rather, we want students to engage in the information and look at ways to understand it, apply it, and synthesize how it connects to other knowledge.

We want educators who see themselves as learners as well as providers of knowledge, which means we want teachers to want to be part of a learning community and collaborate with their peers in each of their responsibilities.
