Desired experience: Experience teaching in a First Nation.
Education in Canada is a success story. Study after study shows that our public schools are among the best in the world. But high overall quality masks deep inequality. Only 48 percent of First Nations youth living on reserve have a high school diploma. In the North, those numbers are even lower. And, too often, teachers arrive in northern First Nations without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce a statistical education gap between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.
Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that works with northern First Nations to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers who will increase student outcomes in the North. This model has been defined by First Nations community partners, our Circle of Advisors, our Board of Directors, and experienced northern educators.
Teach For Canada has a supportive work culture and offers a variety of benefits to its team members including comprehensive health benefits package, 3-weeks of annual vacation that increases with tenure, access to physical and mental wellness supports, flexible hours, and professional development opportunities. In addition to these perks and benefits, Teach For Canada also honours National Indigenous Peoples Day and the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation as statutory holidays; and the last week of every calendar year is paid time off too!
On our team we are fortunate to have a committed, experienced, talented, and humble group of leaders. Together, this team works hard to create meaningful impact. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, innovative, energizing, and rewarding work environment, then we want to hear from you!
The Teacher Development Manager will join the Teacher Development team to work directly with Teach For Canada teachers to provide ongoing support during the school year and, during the Summer Enrichment Program, prepare the next cohort of teachers for teaching in a northern community. Specific responsibilities include:
