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 Special Education Teacher will be responsible for implementing all aspects of a new Special Education program.  Beginning in Summer 2021, the successful candidate will be responsible for receiving student records and managing transfer IEP meetings and timelines.  Once the school year starts, the position will require both case management for an estimated 10-15 students, as well as participation in coordinating service delivery and reporting cycles.  Department-level or administrative experience is a benefit.  This position will receive additional contracted support for mentorship and administrative tasks.  For a full job posting, please visit the WIHS Careers page.
