Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding long-term career in education?
Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District 42 (SD42) is looking for teachers and support staff as it gets ready for the busy upcoming school year. Join a growing district that has not seen a layoff in four years and has supportive working relationships with labour groups and teacher organizations.
“We are a growing district,” says Gwyneth Dixon-Warren, SD42 district principal for human resources. “There are definitely opportunities for experienced teachers leaving other districts as well as teachers new to the profession looking for employment. We’ve got positions we are looking to fill.”
SD42 is home to more than 15,000 students of all ages in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. The district has developed numerous skilled trades training partnerships with college and university, and is committed to educational choice and a philosophy of inclusion and supporting all learners.
Staff are a tightly connected community, Dixon-Warren said, noting the district offers plenty of support for employees looking to grow into their careers.
“The Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association and the district are very collaborative and supportive of each other,” she said. “It is a strong working relationship.”
Dixon-Warren added that employees are provided with a personal growth plan facilitator, who offers guidance and mentorship for both new and experienced teachers.
“We have a very strong mentoring philosophy in our district,” said Dixon-Warren. “We have helping teachers who mentor both new teachers and teachers moving to new assignments.”
