The International Charter School of Atlanta (ICSAtlanta) seeks qualified and passionate educators to teach students in grades K-5. As a school that embraces international discovery and cultural competency, the ideal teacher will actively develop a multicultural learning environment and have a passion for language immersion education. The curriculum at ICSAtlanta is based on current Georgia education standards with each student receiving instruction in English (L1) and one additional target language known as L2. The target languages (L2) at ICSAtlanta are Spanish, Mandarin (simplified), French and German. As a result, teachers work collaboratively in teams of two to ensure that students learn all required standards. A student’s expose to each language will vary based on grade level. For example, students studying Mandarin at the Kindergarten and 1st grade level, they will receive 80% of classroom instruction time in Mandarin and 20% in English.
