Foreign Language Teacher (OFT)

Oakland FlexTech High School is seeking a full time Foreign Language Teacher for the upcoming school year.  Must have teacher certification and endorsement.

Block Scheduling on Monday - Thursday (7:50am - 4pm); Friday office hours from 9am - 3:30pm.

Are you an educational dreamer, believing all students will be inspired learners in the right environment? Are you looking to transform yourself, the students you will serve, as well as the broader educational landscape? Do you want to join a passionate and collaborative faculty who continuously strive to make a better school?

The Mission of our school is to provide a safe and enriching learning environment where the whole student is nurtured and developed. Our teachers and administrators pledge to support the academic and emotional wellbeing of each and every student. Students will leave our school prepared with skills and knowledge that will give them advantages throughout their future educational and life experiences. Our rigorous standards challenge all students to rise to their full potential and become the best global citizens they can be.

Oakland FlexTech High School is located in Farmington Hills, MI and serves the greater Metro-Detroit area. As a 9-12 high school, FlexTech offers flexible scheduling to accommodate learning outside the walls of the school through internships, college dual enrollment and various community projects. Students find themselves challenged and inspired by the progressive, competency-based and project-based learning model that is at the core of our instructional program.

Oakland FlexTech embraces the Small Schools Initiative, serving approximately 200 students who work closely with a teacher-advisor to monitor their progress and to tailor their school experience to meet their individual needs and interests.

Students come to Oakland FlexTech High School looking for a more relevant high school experience. They seek a small, personal environment where they feel supported and encouraged to pursue their interests. The school has an open campus that operates under a seat time waiver, so student schedules are markedly different from a typical high school and there is an emphasis on using technology to support our methodology.

Teachers and students spend their day in an open environment that was specifically designed to mirror the contemporary work world where students are expected to manage their time and build independent and collaborative work skills. Although teachers do some typical classroom instruction, they spend a lot of their time one-on-one or in small groups guiding student work and projects.

Staff at Oakland FlexTech High School are part of a learning community participating in year-long professional development designed to support and develop teachers through a process of reflection and practice. Through a dynamic and supportive environment, all staff are encouraged to bring new ideas and participate in problem solving protocols. Oakland FlexTech provides opportunity for leadership in many ways and strives to support all staff in becoming experts, contributing members of our learning community.

We are looking for talented, collaborative, and reform minded educators who are passionate about creating the environment where everyone can achieve at high levels
