Gifft Hill School
Anyone know if they are in need of any teachers? We are wanting to relocate our family to STJ.
It is actually for my husband. He has his degree in Psychology, but wants to get into elementary education, where his heart is. At a time, he was a stay at home day even. He comes from a long line of teachers... his grandfather and father are retired principals, sister is in Spec. Ed, and another teaches gifted.
We have seriously talked about making the move down for nearly 5 years. We have 2 children, 3 and 6 and wouldn't make the move if they couldn't attend there. We've read the teacher bios on their website and didn't know what their education requirements were. Also, didn't know if someone might know what the going rate for a teacher is at that particular school...I realize teachers are underpaid and probably more so on island. I am familiar with public school teacher salaries, but not so much private.
Gifft Hill has many good teachers. Many are young, little experience and not strong educational backgrounds but they are enthusiastic. There are a a couple of very strong teachers. Check out the bios on their web sight. They do not pay well so there is a lot of turnover. Hopefully they won't lose some of their good teachers this year! The principal of the lower campus is wonderful. If you want a job- you need to be on island. You have to show up on their doorstep before they take you seriously. Good luck.
