We have an English Social Studies teaching position available to begin January 6th, 2020. (Our school year runs from January 6th to November 6th, 2020.)

This position entails teaching Social Studies to 9th, 10th, 11th grade students. We are a bilingual, experimental/laboratory school, and utilize cutting edge teaching strategies to better meet the learning needs of each of our students.

We strive to nurture effective communication skills, master core academic content and engage in inquiry based lessons. Our goals are to encourage each individual student to learn the way he/she learns best. Learning experiences and educational expectations are academically, intellectually, and personally challenging for all students. Project-based learning strategies are incorporated across the grade levels. We use Socratic Seminars to engage our students and also use NEWSELA PRO to support differentiation.

We are heavily engaged in a community outreach program with a local community 2-room school located next to the town dump. This year we have added other local public schools to our list of outreach activities.

Our Book Mobile project works with six local public schools, who do not have libraries, sharing books and mini lessons on the importance of reading.

These experiences will impact your outlook on life and will create a lasting effect on your future role in the global world. It has made a great impact on our students and staff. Plans are to develop academic mentoring to be included in this program for 2020.

The qualifications for this High School position are the following:

  • a minimum of 1 or 2 years classroom experience and proven skills in leadership, group facilitation, organization, writing, listening and communication.
  • ability to work independently.
  • excellent communication skills.
  • a passion for student achievement, the conviction that all students will learn, and a high drive to meet the needs of every student.
  • an intimate understanding of U.S. education.
  • experience teaching High School curriculum (Social Studies)
  • be a strong advocate for students and teachers.
  • ability to differentiate curriculum and instruction for diverse ability learners.
  • current in educational research through on-line research and literature.
  • support the use of a comprehensive assessment system to inform instruction and enrichment opportunities for students.
  • think outside of the box when planning lessons.
  • teach the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade Social Studies classes
  • flexibility to take on responsibilities that are not included in actual job description when necessary. (Common in all international schools.)
