Online Teacher (Part-time)
“True Christianity is contagious. It is caught more easily than it is imparted. More than any other faith it is mirrored in the life of the believer. And in school it must obviously be caught from the teachers, for they are the pattern for the students. The contact between [student and teacher] must be unusually close, closer than in most private schools…” Frank Gaebelein
Each teacher at Oaks Christian Online will incorporate into their teaching a worldview that is distinctly Christian (see website, OC Online – Theological Engagement), and will also demonstrate excellent teaching, learning, thinking and expression. It is also assumed that a teacher has scholarly abilities in the subject area they teach, and that each teacher will diligently work toward helping students become independent and confident learners. Each online teacher is directly accountable to the Online Dean of Instruction, Associate Head of School, and ultimately the head of school. Teachers work collaboratively with the Dean of Students, Student Advisor, and other staff to promote student success.
