Shuswap Middle School – École intermédiaire

Theme: French Education and Public Education
Age Group: Middle Years

Position Description

We are open to ideas for a three-week field experience for this school year given the current and uncertain future restrictions of Covid. Working with staff and students to support program delivery would be a valuable contribution in our school community. Our school was recently engaged in an Indigenous Inquiry project that centers on “transitions”. It would be very interesting to work with a teacher candidate on supporting this work. Finding ways to engage students during noon-hour activities may also be of interest.

Expected hours Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

French possible? Yes


Organization Information

SMS is a middle school with over 620 students in grades 6 to 8. Our school is a busy, vibrant place with much learning (social and academic) taking place every day. With the restrictions of the Covid pandemic, our school operates under some key restrictions including masks in common areas, cohorts, and restricted student movement in “zones”. The mental health and wellbeing of our staff and students place a large part in our work at SMS currently.
