Why Tree House:

Tree House Academy focuses on whole child education and preparing children for the world around them. We are looking for teachers who are hard-working and passionate about education and building connections to join our team! Just as we encourage our students to learn and think outside of the box, we also equip our teachers with the autonomy they need to take fresh, innovative approaches in their classrooms. 

You will be joining a team of welcoming, experienced and passionate people who are happy to share their knowledge with you and help you develop even further. If you have a passion for working with kids, love exploring new methods of teaching, and are excited to be part of a dynamic and collaborative team, then we'd love to have you join us! 

 

What You'll Do: 

Elementary teachers work with other staff to create a rich and responsive learning environment and meet the individual needs of students in line with our school’s mission.

Our staff works to build meaningful relationships and dialogue with children in a warm and respectful manner that instills joy in learning and nurtures critical thinking, independence, and a positive self-concept. You will participate in team meetings and ongoing professional development while also taking the initiative to seek out opportunities to build on professional knowledge.

Elementary teachers work collaboratively with fellow grade-level teachers to plan syllabi and discuss/reflect on execution for each semester. Additionally, teachers share in communicating with parents regarding individual student progress and/or specific behaviors.

The Tree House programs work with children from infancy through elementary. We believe that education begins with parents and continues with our teachers' ongoing training and development. By working to educate our parents and continually advancing our teachers' skills, we can achieve the results we desire to cultivate our students to be autonomous, self-disciplined individuals equipped to tackle the challenges of the world outside the comfort of home.

With literally hundreds of schools to choose from, educators in Taiwan often expect to find themselves in a position to cherry-pick from the best schools; however, this is rarely the case. All too often, teachers find themselves hopping from school to school in search of an environment where they can pursue their passion for working with children, develop their professional skill set, connect and collaborate with a team, and experience authentic job satisfaction.

One of the most common reasons employees leave their jobs is a lack of career growth. At Tree House, we believe that "the only constant in life changes." We believe in the power of 'forward motion' and maintaining a growth mindset in all aspects of life. As our school continually grows and evolves, we continuously seek new ways to offer our staff opportunities for professional development.

What is it that makes a school succeed? Just as we encourage our students to learn and think outside of the box, we also challenge our teachers to take new and innovative educational approaches. We all know that the work environment can often be a stressful place. Hard work isn't easy; it usually involves sweat and the responsibility needed to deliver results. It requires effective time management while maintaining a positive work culture.​

At Tree House, we believe in the power of teamwork, but throwing a group of people together doesn't automatically create a functional team dynamic. We equip our staff with the tools they need to intuitively collaborate while also providing them with the autonomy they seek to develop and innovate. Because at the end of the day, it's teamwork that is the heart and soul of Tree House, and we firmly believe that as Helen Keller once said, "alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much." Plus, it helps that we like each other, too.
