Stamford American School - Hong Kong is committed to recruiting faculty who are dedicated, passionate about their subject area and excited by the prospect of working within a diverse community. Open-minded and curious, our teachers help students form connections across disciplines and emphasize active, collaborative learning.
Stamford has an outstanding faculty with a tremendous experience base and qualifications. We are proud to have 78% Master's Degrees holders among our teaching staff for our 2018-2019 academic year. Our other teachers are also either studying for a Master's Degree and/or have certifications and qualifications beyond their Bachelor's Degree. As teachers at a school with a vibrant international student body, many are also TESOL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certified and highly experienced in working with students from different backgrounds and cultures. We are also excited to have 5 STEMinn leaders among our teachers who will help to drive our school's progressive, problem-based Science, Technology, Engineering, Math & Innovation Program.
Professional development is an ongoing priority at Stamford as we believe a school flourishes when its teachers are committed to lifelong learning. All Stamford teachers are trained in AERO and Common Core Plus standards and have time built into their schedules to work with their grade level colleagues to share ideas and teaching strategies.
We hope this gives you a brief introduction to each of our outstanding teachers. And, of course, our teachers look forward to meeting you in person so that you can witness firsthand what sets us apart in the world of education.
