Náplň práce

This is a once in lifetime opportunity to help build a world class innovative educational institution. LEAF Academy is looking for an Innovative Slovak Language and English Language Teacher. 

Students study all their subjects in English, but they have mandatory weekly lessons in their national language as well. You would be teaching Slovak in the Upper School and helping new students who struggle with their English, mostly in the Lower School. A passion for history and the Central European region is also welcome as is experience in curriculum development. 

While the Slovak lessons take place during usual study time, English support is scheduled also in the afternoon between 4 pm and 5 pm. The frequency of such lessons depends on the current need and number of students, but oscillates between twice to four times a week. 

We consider ourselves to be a community of learners where the learning happens for all parties concerned. Our lessons are student-centred and focus on developing students’ own thinking strategies and quality questioning. We use visible thinking techniques and other innovative teaching approaches that allow adaptation to different students’ needs. Learners focus on their individual growth that is recorded in an assessment that stems from competency-based rubrics. Students are encouraged to reflect on their work as well as the work of the teacher and to make connections to real life.

  • advisory (part of the full-time contract): a person is responsible for a small group of students, and she/he is providing support to students when necessary
