WHY WORK AT PARK?

Positive Expectations

As quoted in our school’s philosophy: “… the belief that positive expectations produce positive virtues is fundamental to the practice of the school.”

When we enter a classroom, a conversation, a meeting space — if we confidently trust each other, our students, and ourselves, we know the outcome of that moment in time will be positive.

Faculty Development

From supporting new employees when they begin their journey at Park, to a professional development program that has garnered national attention, Park ensures every employee has numerous opportunities for growth.

Our faculty take every opportunity to learn from each other. Summer professional development programs enable faculty and administrators to share expertise in intensive collaborative work, to draw on fresh input from outside professionals, to read, research, write, and discuss — all in the service of providing the best possible education for Park students.

“One of the many things I appreciate about working at Park is the school’s unwavering commitment to professional growth. Not only have I been given room to explore what I feel passionate about as an educator, but I have also been given opportunities to share these interests both with colleagues at Park, and in the broader community. ”
– Ali Baran, Fourth Grade Homeroom Teacher

Inspiring Faculty

Park teachers stand apart because of their great passion for teaching and learning. Our inspiring faculty are experts in their own areas of study, allowing our parents and administrators to trust teachers with the space and freedom to explore, research, and develop their curricula, bringing their knowledge and expertise to each and every classroom. They truly connect with students, provide insight and guidance, and encourage them to think critically for themselves as they learn by doing.

Seventy-four percent of our faculty hold advanced degrees: 108 hold master’s or other advanced degrees, with 11 Ph.D.s, 2 Ed.D.s, 1 J.D., and 1 Honorary Doctor of Letters among them.

Tuition Remission

Under current policy, employees who have been at Park full-time for two years are eligible to receive full tuition remission for their children who attend Park. All candidates, including employee children, must meet Park’s standards for admission. (During the first two years of employment, faculty may apply for aid through the need-based tuition assistance program.)

Comprehensive Benefits

Park’s salary and benefits are highly competitive with those in other leading area independent schools. Retirement and health benefits include: medical, dental, and vision insurance; health savings accounts; flexible spending accounts; short-term disability; long-term disability; and retirement savings plan.

The school offers a number of distinctive benefit programs as well, including: tuition remission for employee’s dependents, employee assistance program, computer purchase loan program, and First Financial Federal Credit Union.

“My colleagues make this place happen, not just for the students, but for me, too. Not only do I look forward to being in the classroom each day, but I also love those moments in the hall when I’m hearing about a co-worker’s latest adventure or their latest performance or something they’re doing in their class that connects to mine. Their energy and their joy for learning is contagious, and it reverberates through every space at Park.”

WHY LIVE IN BALTIMORE?

Baltimore is a vibrant and diverse city with character, charm, and culture. Baltimore (pronounced BAL-dah-more, to the locals) has a small city feel. We have museums, entertainment venues, restaurants (with a really great foodie scene!), arts and culture, major sports teams (let’s go, O’s!), local businesses, parks, a harbor (have you ever taken a water taxi?) — and it’s all incredibly accessible.

Baltimoreans, as we’re called, are invested in being and living here. It’s a city where people can be their authentic selves, and it’s a city that wants to open its doors; everyone can feel at home. While Park School’s 100-acre campus is located just north of the city line, our employees and families live in all areas of the city and county. There are many different neighborhoods to explore and fall in love with, each with its own community and distinct feel.

Hear from some of our faculty and staff about why they love living, and working, in Baltimore.

Baltimore, to me, is truly Charm City! 

Unlike other cities I have lived in, where career is the driving reason for people to move there or to get to know others, Baltimoreans have a real respect and love for life outside of your job.

Local gyms, corner bars, book shops, and plant stores are filled with devoted regulars. People are eager to give you the low-down on their favorite recreation spots or hidden restaurants across the city and county. There’s a thriving arts scene. You’ll find local artist’s pieces at the many farmer’s markets throughout the week. I came back to Baltimore to live in a place with a high percentage of African American people, to have an affordable cost of living while reaping the benefits of a big city (lots going on! big food diaspora!), and to have other big cities close by to scratch the metropolis itch when it comes.

I’ve come to appreciate paddleboarding in the Chesapeake, hiking and cycling in the surrounding wooded protected areas, and getting to know the little spots that are walking-distance from my house.


I’m excited for the years ahead of making Baltimore home.

I moved to Baltimore to work at Park after living in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and a tiny town in Oregon.

While I am still getting to know Baltimore, I have loved my introduction!

Some of my favorites so far are: The Visionary Arts Museum, Druid Hill Park, Waverly Farmers’ Market, the Lantern Parade, the “Greatest City in America” benches, the diversity of people and neighborhoods, city amenities with easy access to parks and natural spaces, the pride people take in the city, that uniquely Baltimore flair, and so much more.
