We are a small school with a very collaborative and supportive staff. Currently we have 26 students in two classrooms. The School Board and P&C work hard to support the school.

We are looking for someone who is an enthusiastic and passionate teacher and is confident in teaching a multi-aged class. Having a good rapport with students and good communication skills with parents is essential.
