We are seeking an experienced, certified French Dual Language Teacher to coordinate the launch of the program and facilitate learning for our first cohort of students. The French Dual Language Teacher is responsible for the education of assigned students and will create a flexible program and class environment favorable for learning and personal growth. The teacher will teach literacy skills and identified content subjects to students through the use of both the French language and English language in a 50/50 model.
The ideal candidate will have excellent language and communication skills in both French and English, including familiarity with online teaching and communication systems. Ideal candidates will be collaborative, inclusive, and strong builders of culture and relationships within the school, among students and their families, and within the larger community. A strong knowledge of the stages of language acquisition, project-based learning, inquiry-based learning, social-emotional development of adolescents, and differentiation techniques is preferred. Teachers who are dynamic and creative thinkers are encouraged.
