Next academic year will be our 19th school year! The emphasis will be on returning to our roots: Not using coursebooks. Fun. Spirit of collaboration. Hard work. Enthusiasm. Sharing. Learning. Growing. Laughing. Communication. Return to purpose and values… It’s essential that everyone on the team is 100% on board with who we are!
Our key purpose is to make a positive impact on the world around us through our actions, words and attitudes. Students, parents, colleagues, people who come in asking for information, people in our local community… use the school as an opportunity to touch lives! Both in and out of class we foster our core values: kindness, empathy and gratitude. We see each student and each team member as a unique individual. We strive to support each other, learn from each other and inspire those around us to be the best that they can be. Always 🙂
What kind of personality traits are we looking for in a teacher?
Surprise us! We love dynamic, enthusiastic teachers who demonstrate a desire to learn, to grow, to make mistakes and to reflect on how to improve skills and inspire students. Words that come to mind: fun, caring, thoughtful, energetic, inquisitive, responsible, empathetic… Does that sound like you?
What do we expect from teachers?
Communication is essential. Really essential. Teachers should feel that they can ask for assistance in lesson planning and other classroom issues that come up. In turn, we commit to communicating feedback and suggestions in a positive, constructive way. It is essential that we work together to overcome any challenges, always keeping in mind that each student is unique, and often there aren’t standard answers to classroom challenges.
