YCIS Shanghai is committed to recruiting highly educated and skilled teachers each academic year. As in all international schools, teachers do move on to other countries or return home. We generally have low turnover of staff but when we do need to replace teachers, we strive to find teachers who can adapt to our school environment, and can strongly support our school’s Philosophy and Objectives. We begin recruitment of staff as early as November for the following year and use international recruitment agencies to help us. YCIS ensures the teachers are well compensated so we can attract and retain the very best teachers and we also work hard to ensure that the teachers are developed and reach their full capacity when they are employed at YCIS. After all, the beneficiaries of this commitment to recruitment and retention of the best teachers is of course the students themselves. Nothing is more important to a child’s education than the quality of their teachers.
This year we are proud to introduce our new staff to you:
There are also two new Secondary Teachers who will teach our Year 6 students. They are:
We are sure that our parent community will make them all feel very welcome.
We are excited about these wonderful new teachers and we wish them all a successful and enjoyable career with YCIS.
