Teacher-On-Call (TOC), Senior School - All Subject Areas Welcome
Exciting Opportunity for an Extraordinary Teacher
At Crofton House School, we inspire girls to discover and pursue their personal excellence from the first day of junior kindergarten to grade 12 and beyond.
Bound by our belief in the power of all-girls education, Crofton House School fosters a strong sense of community among educators, staff, students and families. Here, everyone can contribute to the strength of our learning environment – including you.
Crofton House School is seeking teachers who value an opportunity to work in an extraordinary school and in ‘on-call’ capacity. CHS is a school that teachers-on-call return to year after year because of the welcoming and supportive colleagues, the academic calibre and respectful nature of the students, and the stimulating campus and facilities.
You are a skilled and experienced teacher, and you are able to transfer your knowledge to a diverse class of students, and in doing so, inspire their pursuit of knowledge. You are confident in supporting learners using approaches that are reflective of the way in which girls learn. You optimize the resources available to you. You are energized by what you do. Students and colleagues find you to be approachable, available, knowledgeable, genuine and supportive.
