What it's like to work for the Calgary French & International School

Through hiring and retaining the best faculty and staff from across the country, we are able to offer an incredibly high quality of French language instruction and administration within our school.

Supported by a progressively-minded and incredibly hard-working leadership team, our teachers are surrounded by innovative projects and a culture of excellence in French, Spanish and international education. 

Our faculty are chosen for both their ability to teach and an outstanding background in languages and education. Our teachers come from across Canada and throughout the world. 

Every year we add between 5 to 15 new, talented individuals to our team of 120 faculty, staff and leadership professionals. 

If you are interested in working closely with an enthusiastic, dedicated and talented team of teachers, staff, board members, and volunteers we want to talk to you.

Supporting our faculty is important and our teachers have adequate time to prepare for their classes. This gives them the time to pursue their interests as they become coaches, mentors, directors, activists, philanthropists and producers of student initiatives outside the classroom, extending our immersion environment and the richness of our programs. 

Professional development is an important part of ensuring our faculty and staff stay current with best practices and advance learning in their classroom through technology, innovation and their own cutting-edge curriculum development. 

Teachers and staff model leadership by pursuing opportunities for conference presentations, action research and publication in professional journals. They are supported with instructional leadership in the areas of curriculum implementation, professional development, learning and teaching resource acquisition, and student assessment.

We offer a competitive salary and meaningful professional development for all of our faculty and staff. CFIS is a contributing member of the Alberta Teachers’ Retirement Fund.
