Teachers


The North Vancouver School District is not only "the natural place to learn," but also the natural place to work.

We provide world-class instruction and a rich diversity of engaging programs to inspire success for every student and bring communities together to learn, share, and grow. We are known for our progressive approach to instruction, firm belief in Inclusive Education, advocacy for Indigenous Learning, and emphasis on social emotional learning.

Our teaching, professional and support staff provide a safe, culturally diverse and nurturing environment for approximately 16,000 students across 25 elementary and seven secondary schools.

 

Salary and Benefits

  • All contract teachers are offered benefits coverage, including part-time or temporary contract teachers.  
  • Seniority is accrued at 1.0 FTE. Even in a part-time assignment, teachers accrue seniority as if working a full-time 1.0 FTE.
  • No assignment is less than half a day.
  • Teachers are able to port unlimited sick leave from other public school districts in B.C.
  • All contract teachers, including part-time or temporary, may participate in a "12 Month Pay Plan." This allows teachers to receive partial payment of their annual salary in July and August.


Professional Development & Funding

Professional Development funding is offered (certain requirements apply) for teacher-initiated activities, including:

  • Workshops and lectures                                           
  • Conferences and staff retreats
  • Online courses, teacher inquiry projects and self-directed Pro-D
  • Mentoring or serving as a sponsor teacher
  • Guest speakers

  • Professional development funds of up to $250/year (available through the North Vancouver Teacher's Association (NVTA)).
  • Educational improvement leave for one year with full or partial salary (upon approval by the Board of Education).
  • Mentorship. Offered in collaboration with the NVTA, our mentorship program provides teachers with an opportunity to enhance their practice in a voluntary, confidential and learning-focused way. Mentees are paired with an experienced mentor (colleague) in a completely non-evaluative, non-remedial process. The mentorship program is designed to empower all participants in their own professional growth through constructive feedback, while building leadership capacity within schools and across the District.
