Careers

At Convent & Stuart Hall, we are committed to developing resilient, resourceful and engaged thinkers who are equipped to thrive in an evolving world. Our rigorous K-12 educational model is a dynamic blend of single-sex classes within a coeducational environment, supported by small class sizes with resources reflective of a large school. We deliver an interactive learning experience, curated by faculty highly regarded in their academic fields, so that students graduate with confidence in what they know, how they think and who they are. Our community is part of an international network of Sacred Heart schools, where students and adults embrace the catholic charism of our Sacred Heart founders, which is spiritually inclusive and global in nature.

The school is organized into four academic divisions, each led by a Head of School, and sharing resources and a central administration, all of which is under the direction of the President.

The school is an equal opportunity employer.

Job Opportunities

Gr. K-4 Associate Teacher

Convent Elementary and Stuart Hall for Boys are seeking excellent candidates for full time Associate Teachers for the 2017-2018 school year.

Associate Teacher Program

Associate Teachers are essential members of the Convent & Stuart Hall community. They not only form a special bond with their Lead Teacher, but also participate in all school activities as full faculty members. Their energy, enthusiasm, and new ideas are greatly valued at our school.

The primary purpose of the Associate Teacher Program is to support our Lead Teachers and Lower Form students. In addition, the program provides a learning opportunity for men and women interested in becoming educators.

The Associate Teacher Program is a two-three year program that familiarizes the Associate Teacher with theoretical and practical aspects of classroom teaching. Associate Teachers are assigned to a grade and section in kindergarten - fourth grade and are partnered with a Lead Teacher who mentors his/her development as an educator. They have the option to reapply once their three-year term is complete, but are not guaranteed placement. Contracts are reassessed and renewed (if appropriate) yearly. Associate Teachers are expected to attend all faculty meetings and periodic pedagogical workshops given on campus. They are also encouraged to take advantage of off campus opportunities for professional growth. Release time and funds are available for approved workshops.

Under the guidance of the Lead Teacher and Associate Teacher Coordinator, and through meetings and workshops designed specifically for our Associate Teachers, the Associate Teachers develop these important skills:

  • building relationships with students
  • observing, assessing, and supervising students
  • previewing and selecting curricular materials
  • developing appropriate and successful teaching methods
  • planning and implementing lessons
  • managing students and classrooms
  • conferencing and writing reports
