Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
We are hiring itinerant teachers of the deaf to work on-site with students in their mainstream schools, as well as provide service remotely through telepractice. Join Clarke’s community of cutting edge professionals in an advancing field, while also becoming part of our 150-year legacy of excellence as the oldest oral deaf school in the nation.
Since its founding in 1867, Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech (formerly Clarke School for the Deaf) has prepared children who are deaf or hard of hearing to succeed in mainstream schools and the wider world. In order to reach as many families as possible, Clarke now maintains five locations for classrooms and on-site services in Boston, Jacksonville, New York City, Northampton and Philadelphia; offers early intervention home visits; employs an itinerant staff of teachers of the deaf and hearing professionals and provides online consultations through telepractice.
