We’re Hiring: School Dean

Jul 5th, 2017

Annunciation School is a vibrant, Catholic school, serving students from preschool through 8th grade. We are seeking a qualified, passionate educator for the position of School Dean. The role of the School Dean is to assist the principal in meeting the strategic goals of the school, supporting teachers and students while helping create a positive environment for teaching and learning. Working closely with teachers, the Dean also supports the academic, behavioral, and special needs of students.

Working with the School Principal, the School Dean serves as an instructional leader in the planning, coordination, and administration of school activities and programs, including curriculum, instruction, assessment, student conduct, attendance, and support services for students including RTI and 504/IEP processes.

As an International Baccalaureate candidate school, Annunciation is seeking educators who will help prepare our students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others. We focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, in and out of the classroom.  IB educators are open-minded, life-long learners who bring a global perspective to the learning experience. Collaboration with the team of teachers and specialists is critical to our success. The School Dean will assist in the development and implementation of the IB program within the school.

The Dean will be a member of the school’s pedagogical leadership team, working with the principal and other team members to ensure the enhancement of the teaching and learning to address the overarching mission of the school.  Using a constructivist approach, the PLT studies best practices and then advocates for the implementation of those practices in line with the mission of the school.
