All applicants must have qualified teacher status, at least two years post qualifying experience due to Ministry regulations and must be able and willing to work in a cultural 100% ESL learning environment. All secondary teachers must have matching first degree subjects and previous IB MYP/DP experience is preferred. American Curriculum experience (common core preferred) is also valued, but those hailing from a student centred background will be warmly welcomed. Teachers should be able to demonstrate a strong academic background in content knowledge, be collaborative and collegial, value the use of data to drive instruction, be assessment literate, be skilled at differentiating and engaging students, be able to utilise effective instructional strategies and be technologically proficient. It is important to note that this is not a western expatriate school.
Combining the US core standards curriculum with a delivery through the philosophy of IB without the scope and sequence, the school blends the best of both worlds of a traditional American approach of text books and regular testing and a more student centred perspective. The ultimate goal is to eventually attain IB world school status and expand to a full K-12 experience retaining the American element so students can graduate with a US diploma and if they meet with the criteria and IB diploma too.
The school offers a monthly tax free salary of AED12100 for a two year experienced teacher with annual increments for each year of experience. There are also allowances for utility bills and excess baggage, international medical insurance is provided as well as annual airfares, end of service gratuity, local bus transportation and two free places for dependent children plus medical insurance (but no flights or visa costs for spouse and dependants). Accommodation is provided as part of the employment package; it is furnished and single occupancy.
