I am of the opinion that the influence of a teacher's conversation with an individual child on any ordinary academic subject is much more potent than what is said in a class lesson. Those of us who are older often hear sermons or lectures which inspire us, and if we are privileged to talk over points with the the preacher or lecturer afterwards, the effect is much more emphatic and permanent. But how many class lessons have children to listen to which are boring and useless, and others where they are not sufficiently interested to ask a question? If we use class teaching and individual work in their proper places the best results will follow.
The role and guidance of teachers are pivotal for academic success at Cheongna Dalton School (CDS). We are a progressive school and we have a dedicated community with high expectations – excellence in teaching, full involvement in the school’s development and with extra-curricular activities. Candidates considering working at CDS should be prepared to meet these expectations in addition to the regular teaching load. Below are some of the qualities we look for in teaching our teaching team.
