Are you a superb Teacher?

Are you committed to motivating and educating young minds?

Geraldton Senior High School (SHS) is seeking to employ a dedicated and innovative Arts teacher who specialises in music.

We are looking for a teacher who is highly effective in engaging and motivating students and is able to manage their teaching space. They must have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to work closely with students, staff colleagues and the community to achieve the best educational outcomes for students at the school.

The successful applicant will form part of a strong teaching team that develops and delivers a comprehensive Arts curriculum across all year groups. Strong classroom management skills are essential, along with active participation in planning of curriculum and other programs to address the school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility and Doing Your Best.

Participation in Classroom Management Strategies (CMS) and progressive use of ICT in the classroom are highly desirable. It is essential that applicants are able to develop a supportive and positive classroom environment through effective relationship building using an explicit instructional framework

We are seeking an Arts teacher who has a commitment to inclusive education and a strategic approach in planning for improved outcomes for all students involved in the instrumental and classroom music program at the school. The successful applicant will be required to engage in reflective practice that is informed by classroom observation, student feedback and close examination of student data. They must be committed to students being provided opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities associated with performance at school and in the wider community.
