Job Description

SECONDARY DIVISION

The Middle and Upper Grades are where our ambitious goals for Avenues graduates, defined in our mission statement, are most comprehensively realized. While in grades 6-12, we prepare students for a globally connected, innovation-driven, and largely unknown future. Our students will be: accomplished in all the academic skills you would expect, at ease beyond their borders, and confident because they excel in a particular passion. 

 

WHAT YOU’LL DO

At Avenues, history and geography are part of the World Course, whose goal is to develop empathetic, engaged members of their communities. Society and geography teachers guide students to become informed, skilled, and empathic agents of change. The course asks big questions: Who am I? To whom am I responsible? Which voices do you listen to, and which do you ignore? How do you understand and promote "the good life"?  It challenges students through creative interdisciplinary projects, like following a coffee bean back to its source farm, or creating industrial art that addresses religious pluralism. And it explores pressing national and global issues such as climate change, social conflict, and inequality. You will also: 

  • Develop and teach a curriculum that explores social studies topics while engaging all learners in meaningful, interesting work
  • Collaborate intensively and daily with colleagues to design learning outcomes, monitor growth, and thoughtfully address individual student needs
  • Deeply connect with students, colleagues and parents to uphold a culture of welcome, safety and respect
  • Invoke a robust learning atmosphere that leads students to value being at school and feel part of a rigorous and joyful learning community
  • Inspire trust and confidence among parents and families
  • Participate actively in ongoing, intensive professional learning


Requirements

  • At least 3 years of experience teaching history, geography, and social studies 
  • Skill at situating topics specific to China in broader, global contexts 
  • Profound commitment to ensuring and nurturing children's wellbeing
  • Highly effective collaborator, eager to listen deeply, contribute to a team and achieve goals together
  • Dedication to learning and developing the craft of teaching
  • Very resourceful and adaptive, eager to embrace constant change, growth and learning  
  • Bachelor’s degree; graduate degree in education or related field is ideal 
  • Professional fluency in English; Mandarin Chinese is a plus 


Benefits


  • Basic Salary: ¥23k-¥30k/month
  • ¥10k Housing allowance for single; ¥13k+ for family
  • International Insurance and Local Insurance
  • Free tuition for child
  • other benefits
