'Is this job tough? You betcha. Oh God, you betcha. But it is not impossible. We can do this. We’re educators. We’re born to make a difference.' – Rita Pierson 

You may recognise this quote from Rita Pierson, if not I suggest you watch her inspirational TED Talk. 

We won’t even try to pretend that teaching at our school isn’t tough, it is. However, if you want to be an educator who makes a difference, an educator who was born to make a difference, then you may just be the person our kids need in their lives. 

You will meet the most amazing kids from NZ and beyond. You will meet many children who have faced challenges way beyond your life experience, yet they have met those challenges and come through with smiles on their faces. You will meet children who want to learn. 

You will have the opportunity to be the kind of teacher that you want to be. You will have the opportunity to try new ways of working, to be innovative and creative. Anything that makes a positive difference in the lives and the learning of our kids will be encouraged. You will be supported in your growth as a professional. Whether you are an experienced teacher or a new graduate we will work with you to tailor a programme of professional growth and development. 

Is this job for everyone? Most definitely not. This job is for those who sincerely believe in their ability to make a difference in the life of every kid at the school. There will be challenges and it will be tough but it will not be impossible.

If you are up for the challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.
