Elementary Teacher - Kindergarten

ELEMENTARY TEACHER - ELEMENTARY SCHOOL – FRAMING the ROLE
The CIS Mission
Our mission is to Connect / Inspire / Serve. (CIS) We are a positive community with passionate learners.

The CIS Community Principles
Kindness - We value kindness. Our kindness is illustrated in all of our interactions: with our own children, with others’ children, with families, with staff, and with administrators. How we communicate with each other is emblematic of our collective kind and caring spirit.
Partnership - We are strongest when we work together, when we share ideas and resources, and when we partner with the greater Cayman community. A spirit of collaboration not only makes our community stronger, it makes students learning richer by connecting stakeholders in exciting and innovative ways.
Sustainability - We take into consideration long-term impacts when making decisions. This applies to decisions about programming as well is to our personal and collective behavior. We live on an island with limited resources and our environmental stewardship is essential in keeping it viable and healthy for generations to come.
Good Intent - We assume good intent. We trust that members of our community have what is best for one another at heart. We engage diverse perspectives with empathy and open-mindedness. We aim to be our best selves in all that we do.

The CIS Learning Principles
Language of Learning - We understand that to make learning happen effectively and collectively we need a shared language that describes what learning is and how we do it.
Ownership of Learning - We understand that we are all able to learn and ultimately responsible for our own learning.
Nature of Learning - We understand that learning is emotional as well as cognitive and is both an individual and social experience.
Contexts of Learning - We understand that learning transfer happens best in rich, relevant contexts.
