We are seeking a highly effective communicator with high expectations for both behaviour and learning to join our staff for terms 3–4. We need a teacher who thrives on building positive relationships with our children, whanau and community. This role will be in the junior school with our Y1 to Y3 learners.
This vacancy offers a fantastic opportunity for an experienced team player with a great sense of humour who wants to share their passion for junior school learning, in an energetic classroom. We are looking for someone who has experience in promoting and sustaining a vibrant, exciting and motivational learning environment. Bring your commitment, initiative and high standards for behaviour and teaching practice to our equally dedicated staff.
Our school is seeking an experienced junior school teacher who is skilled at building strong relationships, teach our akonga to self regulate and grow their social and emotional skills, alongside the academic ones. We utilise a pedagogy based on play-based learning, team teaching and focus on growing the whole child.
Strengths in PB4L would be an advantage. But we are definitely looking for a teacher with a calm, confident, firm and consistent behaviour management.
Your enthusiasm to bring excellence to the whole teacher role, including becoming a contributing member of our friendly, supportive team and community will be valued.
Our school is a small rural school set in the heart of Poroutawhao, serving the towns of Waiterere Beach, Foxton and Levin. Our school is well supported by a dedicated Board of Trustees, Poroutawhao Support Group and the local community. Check out our website.
