Contracts are available for our upcoming 2018-2019 school year:

THEATRE ARTS TEACHERS    Sept-June classes plus workshop intensive contract positions, French and English 

Our classes range from preschool drama, introducing participants as young as 4 years old to theatre at the most basic level, through to specialized senior classes that focus on a specific aspect of theatre study. As part of our teaching team, your assigned class load is matched to your theatre skills, experience and availability. Working with the Artistic Director, you are responsible for developing your lesson plan, teaching your weekly classes, and preparing your students to perform in the OST-ETO Student Spring Showcase. Some senior classes also perform at local schools and other venues in the city.

Candidates must have related teaching/theatre arts experience; University or comparable education/experience; and the ability to work flexible hours and provide own transportation.

A current police check for the vulnerable sector is required.

Fluency in French is an asset.
