Class Teacher required for September 2018

As a child-centred School, a Black Firs teacher is seen as the decisive element in the classroom. Your personal approach creates the climate. It’s your mood that makes the weather. As a teacher you possess the power to make a child’s life joyous or miserable; a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. You can humour or humiliate, hurt or heal. In all situations it is your response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated; a child humanised or de-humanised. You are the adult, the professional; at Black Firs we adapt to suit the child.

If you think you could be that creative and inspirational teacher, we want to hear from you!
