Design Teacher

Design Teacher
0.5 FTE Probationary

Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) is seeking a qualified design and technology teacher in its Middle and Senior School design program. This is a 0.5 FTE position for the 2020-2021 school year with the possibility of renewal.

The design program encourages hands-on learning, creativity, entrepreneurship, and computational thinking. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, enthusiastic and innovative teacher who appreciates working in a collaborative environment both within the department and across the curriculum. 

The successful candidate must have an Alberta teaching certificate or eligibility to obtain one. Ideally, they also have experience in engineering, computer science, and/or industrial design. Though not necessarily prerequisites for this position, knowledge of, and/or training in, the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme or Diploma Programme and experience working in an independent school setting are considered assets. In order to support student learning in a technology-rich environment, candidates should have experience using technology in the classroom.

All faculty are expected to contribute to STS’s co-curricular activities and demonstrate commitment to students’ growth outside of the classroom.  Employees new to STS participate in a dynamic and supportive mentorship program.
