DEEP COLLABORATION THROUGH LANGUAGE IMMERSION
Collaboration here isn't a buzzword: it's woven into everything we do given that our students in grades N-5 alternate their days between their English and Target Language classrooms.
Teacher teams composed of English and Spanish teachers or English and Chinese teachers share two classes of students
Teacher teams share responsibility for teaching curriculum that promotes their students’ social, emotional and academic growth in both languages.
Given this structure teacher teams communicate daily to plan lessons and discuss student progress
Additionally teachers collaborate with fellow grade-level and language colleagues during weekly meetings.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
This role is a leave replacement position in our Lower Division for 10-12 weeks in late-winter or spring of 2020. The role will be teaching fully in Chinese through our immersion program and will potentially be in classrooms from grades 2-5.

Design innovative curriculum that engages all learners in meaningful and challenging work that cultivates real-world problem solving skills and develops social responsibility
