Carondelet High School is seeking a French teacher who can make a positive impact on the lives of students. We are recruiting teachers with a growth mindset who believe that all students are capable of succeeding, and make language learning relevant and impactful. We teach foreign languages under the assumptions that students can achieve any level of success they want if they are empowered to believe that they have the ability to be successful, and they are provided with relevant, challenging, deep and inter-connected learning opportunities that allow them to connect language learning to other subjects, to their lives, and to the greater world. The French Teacher is to lead students to external certifications that can validate their level and think of language as a piece of their identity and a resource that can provide greater opportunities for them in life.
