Job Description & Requirements

The Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese (the CISVA) operates 47 schools – 40 elementary and seven high schools. Our footprint extends over 250 kilometres, from Powell River in the west to Chilliwack in the east.

We are a culturally diverse faith-based family. We offer more than a place of work – we provide a call to your teaching vocation where you can work and live your faith in a supportive community. Many of our current teachers and principals are products of our school system – former graduates from the CISVA who continue to grow their spiritual and professional journey with us.

We are a vibrant school system with many school and program expansion projects in the future. We offer spiritual and professional growth and mentorship opportunities for new teachers to help them with their transition into the CISVA.

St. James and St. Ann's School in Abbotsford is seeking to hire a dynamic and faith-filled teacher for a full-time, short-term maternity leaveposition in Kindergarten. The position is from May 11 to June 30, 2020, with the opportunity to extend for the 2020-2021 school year. Candidates should have experience with early literacy/numeracy skills, the ability to adapt or modify activities for a variety of learners, a good understanding of the BC curriculum and a strong foundation in the Catholic faith. In addition, candidates should have a desire to extend the boundaries of the classroom and take learning outside into the natural surroundings of the school, as this is an Outdoor Kindergarten program. The ability to assist with extra-curricular activities, such as coaching volleyball and basketball, is an asset.
