Applications close in -234 days


The Elementary and Middle school classes in SMIC Chinese Track cover grades one to twelve.  SMIC students have a higher level of English proficiency than most Chinese schools.  Students are taught all their classes in Chinese except for two classes each day in English.  Starting in 2015, we piloted a new English Language Arts program that we are continuing to develop and so SMIC Chinese Track has two English programs, with the older Oral English focused English program being slowly phased out. In the past, the Oral English program was a joint endeavour with one English class conducted by an expat teacher while one grammar and writing focused class was taught by a local English teacher.

The ELA program, has a different approach that typical Oral English classes.  Students in our ELA program are often preparing to go abroad.  With this focus in mind, both English classes are taught by the native English teacher and are based on American curriculums.  Teachers are expected to cover all competencies, reading, writing, speaking and listening, and use a variety of methods to enhance learning.

A teacher who would be a good fit for this position should be flexible, have an energetic personality, love for children, and good classroom management skills. Teachers will be responsible for lesson planning, daily homework assignments, quarterly mid-term and final exams, parental communications, and so on. Curriculum is provided and there are many supplementary resources and colleagues available to assist our staff.
