Position: Drama Teacher for grades 3-4
Peking University Elementary School is a 100 year old institution directly attached/affiliated with Peking University. They seek to expand its drama program which is currently four years old. The current program only serves second grade students once a week, and this newly created position would be overseeing the third (approximately 35 students) and fourth (approximately 40 students) grade students with drama lessons. Because this is a newly created role, the incumbent would have have flexibility and creativity in developing this program and overseeing curriculum development; the school is seeking a self-starter with initiative and passion for sharing the dramatic arts with young students. The incumbent will be expected to create an original work in English for the students to collectively present at the end of the school year. Note: these classes are not the means in which students will learn English and instead focus on the dramatic arts and student development; this is not a language teaching position although teachers work as a team. Candidates from the U.S., Canada and Great Britain are especially encouraged to apply. Position duration: March 2018-June 2018 with possibility of renewal for 2018-2019 school year.
