Grade 8 Teacher (Team teaching, part-time, maternity leave) Back to Jobs

Duncan Christian School is diverse Christian school located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. We currently serve approximately 390 students from preschool through grade 12, including many indigenous families from Cowichan Tribes.

DCS invites applications for a grade 8 teaching position to fill a maternity leave. This part-time (~28%) position is designed to team teach humanities and science (2 blocks) with our grade 8 teachers.  The 2 teaching blocks run every other day (an afternoon of teaching every other day). This position begins at the start of the fourth term of the current school year, on April 15, 2019, and concludes at the end of the school year.

We seek teachers who love to build relationships with youth and enjoy working together with colleagues, families, and young people to provide a supportive and welcoming school community for students from many backgrounds. Experience developing relationships with indigenous youth would be helpful. If you love Christ and have a passion in these areas, we would like to get to know you better.
