Our staff are strong role models for our girls who demonstrate the learning characteristics that we admire in our girls and understand what’s needed for girls to thrive.
Our teachers see themselves as co-learners who are comfortable with being vulnerable in the learning process. Our teachers are encouraged to not wait until they are experts to introduce or try something new in their lessons.
St Hilda’s teachers have the opportunity to inspire, motivate and challenge young minds. Modelling resiliency and perseverance is important. We encourage our teachers to step outside of their comfort zone. This is how our teachers continue to evolve and learn. We want teachers who aren’t afraid to ask for help from colleagues and have a self-belief and mindset that they can learn anything, given the right attitude, application and effort.
We are looking for adaptive teachers that are comfortable with change and understand the importance of a culture of reimagining in education so that St Hildas remains relevant and leading.
An understanding of how girls learn is key. Girls learn by talking, thinking and doing. Girls like teachers that like them. They want to establish meaningful connections, have a sense of belonging at St Hilda’s and ultimately achieve well, recognising that their best is more important than being the best. No girl is invisible. Relationships are everything in girls’ education and teachers that can connect and provide an environment in which psychological safety is established, is when positive and impactful learning is possible. Girls thrive in a non-judgmental environment in which they can take risks, safely.
Girls love praise as much as boys do and are more responsive to facial cues, so eye contact, a smile and a positive nod goes a long way in creating positive connections through our curriculum and cocurricular programs.
We teach our girls to trust their instincts and do what they think is right and celebrate this mindset amongst our teachers.
