  • Minimum three years teaching ESOL in primary school 
  • Training and commitment to teaching an ESOL curriculum through an interdisciplinary focus, using innovative learning strategies, to a diverse student population.

  • Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability and desire to work collaboratively with the school community, including providing professional development to other teachers.

Experience with the Primary Years Program (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate is preferred, but good applicants with other curriculum experience are also welcome to apply.
