Bard High School Early College Queens, a partnership of Bard College and the NYC Department of Education, invites applications for a leave replacement faculty position to teach courses in our high school Spanish language program from February 2021 through June 2021. BHSEC, a national model in public school reform, enables talented and highly motivated students to graduate with an associate of arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College and a NYS Regents diploma within four years.
