11/26/14 – Lead Teacher, Lead Librarian
The Quarry Bay School Learning Centre, Hong Kong
Sarah P’s comments: I am normally wary of positions which ask a person to both teach and run a library as, in my experience, the library usually comes second and thus suffers. If you apply and interview I would ask questions about the equal division of duties. Could not find any reviews.
You will need to be an experienced and qualified primary teacher. In addition you will have the required knowledge, skills and understanding of information literacy to enable you to support students across the primary phase; to realise the full potential of the library as a centre of learning.
Apart from being a great teacher, having a recognised library qualification would be beneficial. You will be a highly motivated, enthusiastic and energetic individual who loves working with children. You will be a great team player, very well organised and possess excellent spoken and written English skills. Your warm personality coupled with strong interpersonal skills will enable you to communicate effectively with all members of the school community.
Whilst library qualifications are desirable, you will also be someone who has a love of books and be sufficiently well read to be able to recommend appropriate reading materials to both students and adults. You will feel confident and comfortable working with groups of children, staff and parents across the primary phase and be passionate about learning.
The candidate for the Lead Teacher (Teacher Librarian) must be able to demonstrate the following essential criteria. He/she must:
