Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) invites applications for the position of our Middle Years Programme (MYP) Coordinator. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, enthusiastic and innovative individual who appreciates working in a collaborative environment within and across various departments.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate an understanding of the Middle Years Programme, a sound pedagogical framework of inquiry instruction and concept-based learning.

This full-time position will have a teaching component in addition to the MYP Coordinator responsibilities. The teaching component will be confirmed once the successful candidate has been identified.
