SHADOW TEACHER REQUIRED in Schools & Nurseries Posted March 7, 2017 · Report reply Hello, I am urgently looking for a shadow teacher for my daughter who is 13 and attends mainstream girls only secondary school (British curriculum) in Abu Dhabi. My daughter needs support to manage her anxiety, make sure she understands tasks, help her with the social skills necessary to make and keep friends (she is immature for her age) and with maintaining a good diet / controlling access to food. She is a loving, friendly girl who tries really hard and just needs that bit of extra support for her to be happy, keep stress down and do well. She needs someone who can gain her trust, who she can talk to easily, but who can also set and keep clear expectations of behaviour standards. My daughter attends school part time as she tires easily and so the shadow teacher would be required for 50-60% of full time school hours too (currently almost full day Sunday, off Monday, full day Tuesday, morning only Wednesday). You should love working with children, ideally have experience of parenting or working with special needs children in a school environment and have your own visa with the right to work in the UAE. You also need to be strong in spoken and written English. Thank you.
