Pinjarra Senior High School (SHS) is seeking a collaborative, dedicated and highly motivated Mathematics teacher to join our Independent Public School.

The successful applicant will demonstrate professional knowledge, practices and experience to deliver an engaging and relevant secondary Mathematics curriculum using a positive, student-focused approach, and will have success working with students across a range of ability levels. You will support major school directions and be committed to whole school approaches and initiatives. Strong communication and interpersonal skills, as well as a willingness to liaise with colleagues, parents and external networks to establish strong community partnerships are also required for this role. Furthermore, strong applicants will have the ability to incorporate ICT and enterprise skills into the design of the teaching and learning experience, as well as utilise formative assessment and data analysis to provide explicit feedback to target specific student needs.

Central to this is a commitment to be trained in Classroom Management Strategies (CMS), Instructional Strategies for Engagement (ISE), Peer Observation and Tactical Writing. We are a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school that promotes Tolerance, Respect, Unity and Embracing Opportunities as our core values.

Underpinning this is our ongoing commitment to develop Growth Mindsets in our staff and students through targeted Professional Learning and action research.
