Chinese Program Director (San Francisco, California)

Chinese American International School seeks a
Chinese Program Director
(full time, exempt)

Is CAIS Right for You?
The late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, famously said, “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “When we all help each other out, when we stand together, we are stronger together.” If these sentiments resonate with you, then you might feel like you’ve found a home at CAIS.

We are the oldest, most well-established, and most well-resourced Chinese immersion school in the US, and we want someone who will challenge our assumptions, make us rethink the way we do things, and lead us to become even better. Part of CAIS’s Mission is to “become our best selves 成为最好的自我.” We are searching for someone who will help us achieve this Mission as a school, and we will support this person to develop personally and professionally to become their best self at CAIS. You will succeed at CAIS if you are bold.

The Challenge and The Opportunity

Proficiency and Engagement CAIS’s 2020 Strategic Vision, “Reimagining CAIS 重新构思中美” articulates four themes. The first theme is “Reimagining Immersion 重新构思沉浸式教学.” Part of our rationale for this theme is articulated below:

In order for students to engage in interesting and meaningful work in another language, they must develop requisite levels of proficiency and experience feelings of success. Likewise, in order for them to sustain their motivation and achieve high levels of proficiency, the work they do must be interesting and meaningful to them.

CAIS recognizes the critical link between language proficiency and engagement in meaningful learning. Students will thrive if both proficiency and engagement are addressed deliberately and intentionally. A solid foundation in listening, speaking, reading and writing is fundamental to students’ ability to work with and maintain interest in relevant and meaningful content. The next leader of our Chinese program must be focused on the systematic cultivation of both proficiency and engagement, recognizing that immersion faculty are both language and content area teachers.

Thoughtful, Discerning, and Creative Application of Pedagogy Amidst the range of approaches to teaching and learning we may find ourselves stubbornly clinging to convention, uncritically accepting of innovation or, most likely, somewhere in the middle. As teachers of Chinese language in a US context, we need to choose, revise, and adapt our pedagogy based on what is the most effective way to move our students toward the proficiency and engagement outcomes to which we aspire. The wholesale and uncritical application of “best practices” that were originally developed for outcomes other than Chinese language proficiency is risky. Likewise, the unwillingness to let go of conventional approaches that may be outmoded for our students is also a risk. We are searching for a results-driven leader who is open to a variety of approaches and is also critically discerning about what works best for Chinese language learning. This will require a combination of optimism, skepticism, and creativity.

Educating English Faculty About The Challenges and Responsibilities of Chinese Faculty Many (most) faculty whose primary language of instruction is English do not speak, read, or write Mandarin. Understandably, they cannot have a full understanding of the challenges Chinese immersion teachers face as both language and content teachers. The Chinese Program Director will need to work with the English Curriculum Director and all faculty to ensure that curriculum planning accounts for this, and that Chinese faculty are given sufficient time and space to develop the requisite language proficiency in their students.

Integrate with Other Disciplines While Maintaining a Language Acquisition Focus At CAIS we are well-known for our integrated curriculum. We are a highly collaborative school where educators work closely together on learning design across subjects and languages and with the community outside the school and even outside national borders. The Chinese Program Director must continue and enhance the collaborative, integrated nature of our program while protecting the central importance of Chinese language acquisition and proficiency.

Embed the “CAIS Immersion Bonus” into Daily Planning and Practice A key strategy in our above mentioned Strategic Vision “Reimagining CAIS” is to “focus on innovative approaches to immersion aimed at intentionally cultivating cognitive, character, and intercultural competencies—this is the ‘CAIS Immersion Bonus.’” Our rationale for the CAIS Immersion Bonus is as follows:

Beyond language achievement, immersion in Chinese language and culture should be a vehicle to develop students’ problem solving and meaning-making skills as well as foster perseverance, humility, curiosity, empathy, connection to others, and a true appreciation of difference.

The Chinese Program Director will be responsible for collaborating with faculty to find innovative ways to embed these concepts intentionally into planning and practice.

The CAIS Mandarin Immersion Program

CAIS is an independent, co-educational day school serving 500 students in grades Preschool through eight. Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, CAIS will run a full immersion program in Preschool, a 50/50 Chinese/English program in K-5 with a full day in Chinese every other day, and a 30/70 Chinese/English program in 6-8 with an integrated, project-based curriculum.

The CAIS faculty is highly collaborative, with teacher collaboration time built into the daily schedule each morning before classes begin. Chinese language teachers collaborate with each other and also with their English teaching colleagues.

At CAIS we have a very developed program of formative assessment in Chinese. The majority of our teachers are ACTFL certified in administering and scoring the OPI (Oral Proficiency interview) and the WPT (Writing Proficiency Test). Each year all students in grades five and eight take the OPI, and all CAIS students in grades 1-8 take the WPT three times each year. In addition, we administer other standardized Chinese assessments including STAMP and AAPPL. The data we collect from these assessments are used to evaluate our curriculum and teaching for the purpose of improving our program.

CAIS employs a Global Programs Coordinator who organizes three large student trips each year during the spring. Our 5th grade students travel to Taiwan to spend two weeks with our partner school in Taipei, and live with host families. The Taiwan host siblings then return to CAIS and live with CAIS families. Our 7th graders spend three weeks in Guilin, Guangxi Province with our partner organization there, living with host families and studying a curriculum of intensive language study in the morning and field work in the afternoon. CAIS eight graders travel to Yunnan Province where they focus on rural life and ethnic minority cultures, including a village home stay in a Kham Tibetan village. All three programs are integrated with the CAIS curriculum in Chinese.

CAIS also has restricted funds dedicated to the China Faculty Institute (CFI), a program that funds CAIS faculty learning in China and Taiwan, through either CAIS organized group programs or individual travel grants.

CAIS educators are encouraged to present at national conferences such as the National Chinese Language Conference (NCLC) and the annual ACTFL conference. CAIS has a generous professional development budget and each year representatives from CAIS attend these conferences as presenters and workshop leaders, often collaborating with educators from other immersion schools around the nation. CAIS has also organized and hosted two conferences each year, the Early Childhood Chinese Immersion Forum (ECCIF) and the Chinese Innovation Forum.

Early Childhood Chinese Language Teacher(Brooklyn, NY)

Whittle School & Studios is an endeavor to modernize Preschool to Grade 12 education to build the world’s best physical and connected environment for human learning and development. Our campuses are comprised of four divisions: Early Learning, Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School.  Designed by architect Renzo Piano and led by education entrepreneur Chris Whittle, we will be constructing 30 Preschool to Grade 12 schools in the world’s most vibrant cities over the next 10 years.

Our first two campuses opened Fall of 2019, located in Shenzhen, China, and Washington, DC. Our next endeavor will be a Fall 2020 launch of a phased-in Early Learning Center in Brooklyn, NY followed by its full opening in Fall of 2021.

Position Overview The Early Learning Center focuses on developing students ages three to six. At this age and division level, faculty use immersive language techniques and engage in mind and body awareness activities. They also structure community learning and choice time, project work, outside exploration, story time, workshop time, arts, and making. Our early learning program is based on the Reggio Emilia principles of respect, responsibility, and community. This approach recognizes the image of the individual child as a human with rights who has limitless potential for growth and uses Emergent Curriculum to co-create learning experiences that are derived from student interest and responses to provocations in the environment. Project-Based Learning and Mastery-Based Progression are used as frameworks within the Emergent Curriculum to work actively with hands, minds, and emotions in the context of the many expressive languages of children. Whittle is also inspired by key tenets of Reggio Emilia, including participation of families, collegial work of all personnel, the environment as the third teacher, group work, and the presence of an atelier. The Early Childhood Chinese Language Teacher will be inspired by the Reggio Emilia model grounded in student autonomy and discovery of the world. The Teacher will demonstrate practices that reflect this approach by encouraging student independence, spontaneity, curiosity, and by always asking more questions than giving answers. Respect for our young learners is at the core of the Early Learning program. The ELC Chinese Language Teacher partners with the English Language Teacher to plan and implement the dual language immersive Reggio inspired Early Learning Program for a designated cohort of students. This position is open for both our Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY campus.
