Lead Teacher (Prague 4 Campus)
BASIS International School Prague is seeking full-time elementary school teachers or teaching enthusiasts to become Lead Teachers for Grades 0 – 3 (children from 5-10 years of age). At BASIS Prague, all core courses are co-taught by 2 teachers per classroom:  a Lead Expert Teacher (LET) and a Subject Expert Teacher (SET). The LET spends the entire school day with his/her Grade group, making sure the students understand the material and provides pedagogical and emotional support. A Subject Expert Teacher (SET) specializes in teaching one of the disciplines: Math and Science, English Humanities, Engineering, Fine Arts, Czech Humanities, etc.). Depending on the subject, the Lead Teacher can either take on the role of the SET or LET. The synergy of the SET and LET facilitates a relatively rapid transition from instruction in foundational skills and knowledge to independent thinking and active learning in the primary grades.

  • Establishing and maintaining standards of student behavior needed to achieve a functional learning atmosphere in the classroom

  • Supervising students and ensuring safety protocols are met

  • Creating progress reports, accurately grading and recording student work

  • Providing interventions (individual lessons)

  • Helping students learn and develop socially and emotionally by setting good examples, offering emotional support, having a compassionate attitude, helping kids resolve conflicts

Requirements:

  • To be legally entitled to work in the Czech Republic

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Education or a related field

  • Fluent in English

  • Commitment and enthusiasm for working with children

  • Experience working in primary or secondary schools
