[Announcement] Positions
« on: July 21, 2008, 05:47:27 AM »
In this thread you will find a list of any open teaching positions around the schools. Administrators will post when a new position has opened up, and it is your responsibility to post in this thread if you're interested in taking over the role.

Professors are given moderator privileges and should be played with the utmost responsibility. Each professor should be a graduate of the school they are teaching at, should be over the age of thirty, and should follow the rules of their school (ie; the right nationalities, no muggleborns without exceptional stories for Durmstrang, etc.) Professors are expected to keep their class lists up to date and to post in their classes regularly, as well as making new lessons as required. For specific rules per school, get with an administrator on the school team such as Samm for Ilvermorny, Taed for Mahoutokoro, Sioban for Beauxbatons, Dylan for Durmstrang, Sophie for Hogwarts, and Fee for Koldovstoretz and Department Heads/Head Healers.

When applying for a position, make sure to include a sample of how you'll start your first lesson.

Hello! I'd like to apply for the Dueling professor position at Koldov. Idrees Al Nasr will be the first person to tell you that he is a master duelist. Luckily for him, he's right. The problem is he has a flare for the dramatic, which can occasionally lead to his downfall as he looks for the most entertaining way to finish his opponent rather than the most direct. He's a 35 year old former Tigrova who is outgoing and charismatic. He honestly enjoys teaching, finding joy in his student's successes and progress.




Idrees Al Nasr breezed into the classroom, mere seconds before the start of class. His light brown hair was carefully combed and slicked back to keep his perpetually curly locks out of his face. The bold smile he was wearing looked good on his full lips, eyes crinkled happily above his sharp cheekbones. He strode to the front of the class with no hesitation. His open robe flapped behind him like unruly wings. His lanky form was surprisingly graceful, his motions fluid as he motioned for the his beginning Dueling class to rise.

"Up, up!" He called brightly in his musical tenor. "You cannot duel sitting down, so you cannot learn to duel sitting down!" A quick flick of his wrist sent his wand sliding into his hand, and another flick had the tables and chairs stacking themselves along the walls. "You do not have the luxury of chairs in this class," he told the class as he turned to face them from the front of the room. "Before you duel, your body must be ready to duel! Dueling is not something you simply do. You must become your wand, become your spells! You must be limber and ready to move."

His smile was ridiculously happy as he looked over the class. "First, we must stretch! You cannot duel properly if you are stiff from sitting on your rump or sleepy from too much breakfast!" His hand slipped back into its holder as he tossed his robe over the coat rack he had at the head of the class for specifically this reason. He was dressed in a crisp white shirt and black slacks, with well-worn boots. He lifted his hands above his head. "Come, come! Hands up, reach towards the ceiling! Feel your arms get loose!"

The man took his class through a series of stretching exercises: arms, back, and legs. He could see more than a few of his students were panting and red-faced by the end of the warm-up. "I would say do these exercises three times daily, but I doubt most of you will actually carry through." He chuckled, all charming good humor. "Now, now we can start to duel! I want you to pair off! Find someone you have not met, say hello! This is today's partner." He waited for his class to pair off properly, going through a few more intricate stretches for himself.

Hey guys! I would like to apply for the Aquatic Healing position at Koldovstoretz. Aleksandr Kozlov is a pureblood Medvedev alumni who spent a few years as a healer before deciding that he wanted to teach instead. He's kind but stern, and he takes his subject very seriously. Though he can be slightly dramatic at times, he sees it as being passionate and he sincerely wants his students to succeed in his class.




The bright sunlight shining through the uncovered windows caused the interior of the treehouse to be brightly lit. While some of the professors liked their classrooms to be on the darker side, Aleksandr preferred his teaching area to be light and bright.

Tables were set up in perfectly even rows, each one with enough space to fit two students comfortably. On Aleksandr's desk, there was a teacup and a small display that he’d made. Packed brown sugar had been made into a mound, and the man had cast an illusion over it to look like a mountain. Though it wasn't completely necessary, he’d thought it would make for a good visual and besides, it had hardly taken any time at all to make.

As the first few students trickled into the classroom, Aleksandr Vsevolodovich moved to the door so he could try to greet each student with a handshake as he did every class period. He knew some of the students hated this routine, but Aleksandr Vsevolodovich didn't care. It was a habit now, and he liked it. When the last of the students filed in, the professor walked to the front of his classroom and started his lesson.

“Water,” he said, leaning against his desk, “is everywhere. The Earth is approximately seventy-five percent water and the human body is about the same. There are water particles in the air, and even our own Zhivoystya house is associated with water.” The Russian man paused to retrieve his prop and, after using amnis aqualis to drizzle some water on the mound, causing the mountain of sugar to 'melt’ and dissolve, continued his lecture. “Given the proper amount of time, water can destroy things. It can cut through stone, ruin buildings and rust metal, but if we combine water with magic and use it properly, water can be used to heal and protect.”

“For example,” he continued, picking up a spare teacup, “combined with what you learn in your water manipulation class, you can use water to encase someone who is in critical condition to preserve them until help arrives or while you transport them. For deep gashes or more serious wounds, you can freeze water over the wound which could prevent someone from bleeding out. For less serious injuries,” he said, pausing to smash the teacup down onto his desk. The cup shattered and the man winced as slivers of glass sliced his palm. As he showed his injured palm to the class, he continued his lesson. “water can be used to quickly heal and disinfect small cuts.” With that, Aleksandr Vsevolodovich conjured enough water to fill his palm before making a fist and murmuring an incantation.

When he opened his hand and shook off the remaining drops of water, all traces of the cuts were gone and he once again showed his hand to his students. “Does anyone know how else water can be used to heal?”

So I just noticed that Ancient Runes is open, and seeing as Orion has been nagging me to come back forever, I can't really pass the opportunity to apply for the position.

Orion Orchid is a pureblood Ravenclaw alum from Canterbury, a seasoned Runes scholar and violinist. He was the Runes professor up until the Battle of Hogwarts, during which he tried and failed to defend Colin Creevy (as played out on MH). Although he did successfully defend other students that night, Colin's death and the experience of the battle generally really affected him and he decided to take sabbatical from his teaching position. Since then he's been trying to put himself back together again, seeking solace in music and spending some time travelling writing his latest Runes book. He's not sure that he'll ever be 'better', but he feels that he has to return to teaching and if he doesn't, he really has no chance of moving on from his guilt.

--

The classroom didn't look any different, although Orion could only assume that it had suffered some damage during both the war and the previous academic year, and been repaired... or perhaps the protective runes that he'd carved into every lintel and beneath the floorboards really had made a difference. He'd worked so hard to try and protect this place and his pupils. As Autumn light poured through the windows, Orion could reflect on happy times he'd spent in this very room. He tried to focus on those to drown out less positive memories. It was time to put the negatives of the past behind him and press forwards into the future. And although visions of the Battle of Hogwarts occasionally still plagued him, he really was glad to be back at the school. He'd missed it. Missed the young, curious minds. Missed the smiles and laughter. Missed the joy at new discoveries as they learned the subject he loved. Runes was an ancient art, and yet a fresh class could make him fall in love with it anew, taking him back to the days when everything was an exciting mystery to be uncovered.

That was the enthusiasm that he hoped to inspire in his students. Runes could sometimes have a reputation of being difficult, serious and... stuffy. Orion had always made it his mission to shake that up. He wanted to get them interested. Get them talking. Which is perhaps why the classroom was currently dominated by a large looming lump of rock, at least nine foot tall and six wide, its surface decorated by intricate carvings that spread across every inch of the stone. The desks had been arranged in a circle surrounding the stone with plenty of space in the center of the circle to walk between the rock and desks. Orion stood to one side of the classroom, leaning against a windowsill with his back to the window, a book open in his hand and pretending to read. But really, his attention was focused on the students as they filtered in, eager to see their reactions.

Hey guys! I would like to apply for the History of Magic position at Koldovstoretz. @Maryana Nikolaeva is a 28 year old muuggleborn Rayasov alumni who, while working at a museum not too far from where she lives for a few years, has found that she loves history. This would be her first year of teaching (01-02). Being a young woman of passion, a bubbly personality, a generous and compassionate heart for the youth, and an artful mind, this teaching position not only allows her to put her skills and knowledge to good use, but she wants to help students appreciate their magical history and help them come to know and understand the "boring" material in an effective way that will engage and involve the students in learning so they can come to know it easier.


*If this were an actual class post, I would have noted that chars can pick their roles and create accustions and characters that fit the time period, but may not be real.

The past couple of weeks, the students of the History of Magic class had been studying about witch hunts and trials all over the world during different eras. The last couple of days, they had been primarily focusing on the Salem Witch Trials of Massachusetts in the 1690s. As their unit was coming to a close, Maryana had an exciting project that resulted as their final grade. "As many of you will recall, I had each of you research and write a three-page essay about different people involved in the Salem Witch Trials. Some of you researched those who were charged and found guilty. Others were charged and found innocent. A few of you researched the punishment executors, the court, the judge, and some of the townsfolk who had blamed others or stayed on the sidelines and watch everything unfold. Today..."

She smiled at the class with a glimmer of mischief twinkling in her eyes. If her students hadn't guessrf by now, they were soon about to find out why they had researched these individuals. The desks were positioned so there was one chair in the center of the room. Where Mariyana stood was a single row of desks that curved around the chair. Behind this chair, the students sat in two columns of neatly lined chairs. Miss Nikolaeva had set up her own courtroom within her class room. "We'll reenact some of those stories, every person playing the part they researched, and having our own Salem Witch Trials!" Her voice rang with excitement as she watched the students connect the pieces and were able to easily follow along with the instructions she had given.

"The rules are simple. There will be one judge. Then his court, or jury, if you will. As being victims who are placed on trial, you will each take turns. The rest of you will  watch from the desks," she motioned to where they sat now. "And you will help decide if this person is guilty or not guilty. Put yourself in the time period. Think of how your character felt about these trials. What would your character do if they were next on trial? Would they defend on person and cry guilty for another? There will be order kept in the court. I will play the neutral ground. Each victim must bring me their paper with their character's name, their status in Salem, and what they have been charged with. Why are they being called a witch? You will each be given a few minutes to go through your paper and mark these. You may also identify any important evidence that may help your defense. If you sell your innocence well enough, you can have a different, or very similar sentence to what your character was given. Those who are found guilty will sit along the wall beneath the window. Those who are found innocent will resume their seat with the rest of the audience. Be sure to take notes about tactics people use, what stories the judge is more sympathetic too and which they find appalling. Everyone, mark your papers, take your places promptly, record notes, and we will begin."

What better way to engage the students in history than to have them act it out? Maryana was thrilled with the idea she had been able to work through with some help from another Koldovstoretz professor. She took her seat opposite the wall of the window so she could watch her students sit where their character would be found. Each setting had a name tag for the characters they were pretending to be. Once the judge, his court, and the audience had seated, she reached her hand into a bag and pulled out a slip of paper of one of the victim's names. She called out the name. When given the report, she read the accusations against him before stepping back, and allowing her students to lead the discussion, defending themselves and blaming others, and then deciding what the final sentence would be.

Please make this prof! Approved but I also sent you a PM about her age and the Durmstrang/Koldovstoretz merge last term.
