A teacher who wears compassion like a superhero cape, swooping in to save the day for kids who've weathered life's storms. A teacher with a rebellious streak, ready to flip society's script on how we perceive children from low-income neighbourhoods. A teacher willing to move mountains, or at least rearrange some desks, to alter the life trajectories of our students. A teacher hungry for knowledge, eager to soak up training and coaching like a sponge. A teacher who is relentless in their pursuit of solutions when a child encounters gaps in understanding.  A teacher who showers our kids with love, even when they're about as appreciated as a Monday morning alarm clock. It is important that you recognize the intrinsic value of peer collaboration, as the acknowledgment that "teachers need teachers" underscores the paramount importance of fostering a positive staff culture within educational institutions. A teacher that knows at our school the expectations for both kids and teachers are beyond the normal call of duty. Join us, because teaching here is not just a job, it's a legacy in the making.
