High School Teacher

Starting date: not given
JCS is a bilingual school based in the beautiful, Caribbean mountains of the Dominican Republic. We are looking for enthusiastic and adaptable full-time teachers for the following positions:
Elementary homeroom teachers (Kindergarten to 3rd grade)
Elementary computing teacher
Elementary art teacher
Middle school science teacher
Middle school social studies teacher
Middle and high school computing teacher
Middle school and high school French teacher
High school social studies teacher
High School English teacher
Elementary homeroom teachers are the primary teachers responsible for their class. Homeroom teachers must teach English, maths, science, and social studies and there is flexibility in the timetable for each teacher to include special classes such as reading, music or life lessons. Teachers will teach approximately 4-5 lessons with 2-3 prep periods a day. This equates to approximately 16-25 teaching hours per week.
The elementary computing and art teachers are responsible for planning and delivering their lessons to different classes across elementary school (K-4th), teaching each class once or twice a week. They must also liaise with the homeroom teachers to ensure consistency for the students between classes. In elementary school, the children stay in their classroom and the subject teachers go to them. These teachers will have approximately 10-20 teaching hours per week.
Middle and high school subject teachers are responsible for planning and teaching lessons in their subject to all classes either in MS or in HS. Generally, MS and HS teachers are based in one classroom and the students rotate between their classes. Teachers will have an average of 4 classes per day which should equate to approximately 16-25 teaching hours per week.
