Good Shepherd is seeking a Science teacher for its Middle / Senior campus in the beautiful semi-rural suburb of Howard Springs in the Top End, (25 minutes south of Darwin). Experience in teaching Chemistry, Physics and Psychology is highly desirable.
Good Shepherd offers the Primary and Middle Years' Programmes and is a most sought after school in the region (and beyond) for its highly regarded education and outstanding attention to student wellbeing and care.
Teachers are responsible for providing an educational atmosphere where students have the opportunity to fulfil their potential for intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological growth. They are responsible for organizing and implementing an instructional program that will result in students achieving academic success in accordance with the policies and procedures at Good Shepherd Lutheran College.
The Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate (IBMYP) organises learning into eight subject groups, with an emphasis on inquiry through interdisciplinary learning. This approach helps students to take knowledge from two or more subjects, and create new understandings and connections. Through the programme, students are encouraged to be active learners who through international mindedness are able to empathise with others and pursue a life of purpose and meaning.
Senior School at Good Shepherd encompasses the critical formative years in a young person’s life and so in partnership with parents, we establish genuine relationships to support students both personally and professionally as they make the transition from dependence to interdependence to independence. All teaching staff are expected to continually engage in professional learning and development to improve teaching knowledge and practices. All work is to be performed in accordance with Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) professional standards:
• Know students and how they learn
• Know the content and how to teach
• Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning
• Create and maintain supportive and safe learning environments
• Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning
• Engage in professional learning
• Engage professionally with colleagues, parents/carers and the community
Good Shepherd pays above award salaries and offers generous relocation assistance.
