Shanghai Huaer Collegiate School is seeking to appoint a Teacher of Elementary Homeroom for the current (2020/21) school year. The new school employs a blended Chinese and American curriculum that combines a drive for academic excellence within a whole child education program designed to nurture healthy, globally aware young adults.
Learning with Huaer Collegiate truly is a process. Each stage of education prepares the scholar for the next, from preschool through Grade 12 and onto college. Scholars who spend their entire school life with us benefit from the continual and consistent support that only a progressive curriculum can provide.
In elementary school, a personalized dual language immersion model will build foundational skills and proficiency in both English and Chinese. We use regular progress monitoring exercises to build and update individual learning plans that focus on growth towards proficiency and resiliency. In doing so, Chinese and international teachers, supported by teaching fellows, will deliver an integrated STEAM-based curriculum that fosters critical thinking, creative problem solving, collaboration and self-awareness. Experiential and conceptual learning is enhanced through cross-disciplinary projects linking sciences, technology and mathematics with the arts, inclusive of the humanities.
Based on their interest and abilities and with the approval of the elementary school principal and dean of student life, elementary school teachers have the opportunity to sponsor co-curricular programs or activities in any of our school divisions by coaching or leading activities such as a team sport, academic club or student leadership group.
We expect our educational leaders to embody the very same high standards and dispositions we expect our graduates to model: to be a resilient scholar, adaptable ambassador, enlightened communicator and ethical visionary.
Therefore, every educator will be expected to contribute actively to the whole life of the school, working with scholars beyond the classroom in advisory, co-curricular and residential programs.
We are building a diverse, enthusiastic and highly supportive community of teachers who are committed to academic excellence and the creation of opportunities for scholars to take charge of their learning with daring optimism and drive.
