OPPORTUNITY

Chinese American International School (CAIS) is conducting an extraordinary search for a team of two educational leaders to guide our 330-student lower school. CAIS is committed to building its cohesive, all school leadership team around the strengths, experiences and passions of its individual leaders; accordingly the configuration and specific responsibilities of both positions are being deliberately held open. Rather than evaluate candidates against a set list of criteria, we will assess each candidate’s particular gifts and ultimately decide on the best way to leverage those gifts vis-a-vis the school’s needs and the complementary skill sets of other members of our leadership team. We want consequential leaders who will make an impact on our school culture and programs. If this interests and excites you, please read on!

IMPORTANT AREAS OF FOCUS FOR OUR NEW LOWER SCHOOL LEADERS

At CAIS we value honest self assessment, thoughtful self reflection, intentional planning and focused implementation.

We are particularly keen to identify new lower school leaders who can help us make consequential progress in the areas of:
● Social emotional learning (SEL) and community building
● Diversity, equity and inclusion
● Establishing a culture of professional learning communities

CANDIDATE SKILLS, EXPERIENCES, AND POTENTIAL

We will look for candidates who possess several (though of course not all) of the following:

● Significant teaching experience required with demonstrated success (we will consider current teacher leaders with demonstrated potential for one of the two positions)
● Successful leadership experience in schools (at least one of the positions will be filled with an experienced school leader)
● Chinese (Mandarin) language proficiency (while not a requirement, we will almost certainly hire one Chinese speaking candidate)
● Experience with/commitment to language immersion and multilingualism
● Commitment to fostering a school environment rooted in kindness and respect where all members feel a sense of belonging
● Interest in and success with school community building and social emotional learning
● Interest in/experience with instructional coaching and developing faculty
● Experience with strategies for differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment
● Comfort and competence with multiple pedagogies, e.g., project based learning, experiential learning, blended learning, design thinking, etc.
● Knowledge of designing physical learning environments
● Strong strategic thinking skills and the ability to turn ideas and strategies into action
● Ability to manage change initiatives
● Ability to foster teamwork and collaboration among lower school faculty across grades, subjects and languages
● Ability to work closely and collaboratively with the whole school educational leadership team
● Outstanding communication skills, including public speaking, interpersonal communication, and writing
● Ability to make tough decisions and deliver difficult news with compassion, clarity and firmness
