"I really enjoy working at the Briarwood school.  As a former student I have seen first hand the difference Briarwood makes on students' lives.  The changes in confidence and happiness is something special to be a part of. The feeling of being appreciated by parents and administration makes it a great place to work."

~Lower School PE Teacher & Middle Upper Coach, Briarwood Alumni~

"I have been teaching at Briarwood for 13 years now and can say that it is one of the most rewarding jobs I have had.  You will make a difference in the lives of your students because of the personal, hands-on attention you give and through the support of parents and the school’s administration.  Our faculty is tight knit and very helpful to one another.  You will have that feeling of pride - like you are on a great team of professional educators."

~Middle/Upper School History Teacher and Coach~

"I love the "family" environment of Briarwood.  We get to know the staff, kids and their families as well as work together to help the children learn in the ways they learn best.  I would not want to teach anywhere else.  This is home!"

~Intermediate Science/Social Studies Teacher~

"I love working at the Briarwood School because it provides me with an opportunity to utilize a dynamic curriculum to engage students whose needs might not be met in a traditional classroom setting."

~Lower School 6th Grade Science Teacher~

"I really like how the school brings in nationally recognized experts in the education field to further our understanding of best educational practices, and how to implement them in the classroom.  The incorporation of Google Classroom has really been a game changer for our students with language based deficits and executive function challenges.  There are so many tools for them to use to support their learning and to demonstrate their mastery."

~CALT, Middle Upper Reading Lab Teacher~

"Briarwood is my professional home. The teacher comradery, administrative support, and student-first mentality are welcoming differences at this school!"
