At SD48, we believe that diversity is a strength and
inclusion is a right. Our common goal is to design interdisciplinary and
personalized instructional approaches to create safe, purposeful
and powerful learning environments in order that all students can think
critically, create, collaborate, contribute and learn. Teachers
actively work on teacher learning teams using
collaborative models of support to co-plan, co-teach and co-assess in an
inclusive setting, using invisible interventions. Additionally, teachers mentor students, over
time, in reflecting on where their personal interests and strengths overlap
with emerging career-life opportunities in the world.
All teachers must be prepared to use a variety
of technology for planning, attendance monitoring, communicating classroom
instruction and reporting, and be prepared to support the School Improvement
Plan and District goals through Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing and
the Four Blankets of Resilience.
Using a behavioral approach in
the interview process, we are seeking qualified candidates with proven success
in these areas. The behavioral interview process includes describing the
situation or task, the actions you took and the results you achieved.
