Opening a new school takes an innovative and creative team, and we want to include your dreams and talents on ours! Whatcom Intergenerational High School is seeking founding teachers who are passionate about what they do and want to return to the dreams that led them into the profession: Creating authentic learning experiences, supporting the emotional, cultural and social lives of young people, as well as collaborating across disciplines and with community partners in order to make learning relevant, challenging and fun. At WIHS you will find a highly collaborative approach where there is the freedom to create these experiences with students, and a network of colleagues, Elders and community partners to spark innovation.
The Founding Health & Wellness Teacher will work with an interdisciplinary team to plan curricular inquiries and experiences for students in grades 9 and 10, as well as support students in their own Phenomenon-Based Learning investigations. Limited on-site facilities for movement classes are available, so candidates with experience coordinating with community-based partners or planning non-traditional classes are encouraged to apply. This position may be part-time or full-time, depending on the ability to take on additional roles and responsibilities at the school. For a full job posting, please visit the WIHS Careers page.
