    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 Koldovstoretz, Christine for Ilvermorny, Fee for Mahoutokoro, Sioban for Beauxbatons, Dylan for Durmstrang, Sophie for Hogwarts, and Fee for Department Heads/Head Healers.

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

    I'd like to apply for the  Enchantement position at Beauxbatons. I'd like to use @Trystan Lecuyer, a thirty-five year old accomplished Charms expert who used to be a Defensive Charms Consultant for the Department of Mysteries. There he perfected his wand skills, and in time honed his teaching skills when he stepped up to the head of his team. He absolutely loved teaching new additions the team, so much so that it lead him to lend himself out for tutoring in charms, and later on down the road he went to school for teaching. After his time in College, the former Ombrelune applied at Beauxbatons for the Enchantement position, hoping that he'd love teaching the next generation as much as he loved teaching this one.

    Trystan himself is a smart, down to earth, very amiable individual. He'd be willing to help his students out in any way he can, and would go so far as to do one on one tutoring with his students just to make sure they understand. This does not mean however, that hes a pushover. He's professional and firm with his class, aside from little jokes related to the lesson. He can't stand it when people come to his class and sleep or don't pay attention. He will dismiss those students, and will fail them on attendance for that class. Attendance to him is actively participating in the class by doing the practical and at least raising a hand when a question is asked, and of course keeping their gaze on him when he is speaking. (And who wouldn't want to, hes gorgeous)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    As Trystan walked into his classroom, the warm, familiar scent of vanilla and jasmine filled the air and he could almost feel the magic coalescing in the room. This was a good sign of things to come he thought. The former Omberlune walked over to his desk, set down his briefcase on the floor beside it and took a seat in the large, leather high back chair. He looked out into the empty classroom, taking stock of his new surroundings. The room was, by all accounts, spacious and open, with desks and chairs meticulously placed in 4 rows of five on either side of the walkway from his desk to the back wall. He looked to his left, at the door the students would be marching in from at any moment. The thought of children depending on him to teach them what they needed to know to excel in the magical world both frightened and excited him at the same time. The more he thought about it, the more he was ready for it to be class time.

    In a few moments, a mass of students came flooding through the door of the Enchantement Classroom, the sound of the footfalls on the tile floor made it sound like an army was marching in. Some of the students took seats immediately, while other students waited and weighed their options. He waited a few moments for stragglers, then whipped a hand to the door which promptly shut and locked. He stood from the high back chair, straightening himself up to his full height and smiled at the class.

    "Welcome to Enchantement, I'm Monsieur Lecuyer," some students said welcome, others just nodded, "I'm very excited to talk about today's lesson, but first I feel I must lay down ground rules." The former Charms Consultant drew his lips to a line, no longer smiling. "First and foremost, please be here because you want to, if you come here to sleep or cause trouble I will have no problem kicking you out of this class. So, if you feel like you don't need to be here, the door is over there." Professor Lecuyer gestured over to the door, glancing over at his students then to the door which gave a faint popping sound like the lock had slid back open.

    "Piggybacking off of that, I expect you to participate in my class. Charms is a very practical subject, and I am a practical teacher." As he said this, he moved his with a flourish andhis wand emerged from his suit jacket. He arched it around the room, causing the lights to brighten to almost florescence, then dimming them to his liking. "I am giving you the knowledge to function as a member of society and be able to adequately use magic to propel you forward in life. If you do not learn how to channel your magic properly, you will find it hard to cast the simplest incantations."

    Professor Lecuyer's face brightened a little bit suddenly, then he added, "But I'm sure you will all head my warnings and we'll have a great hour together in this classroom of ours." He pushed aside some paperwork, grabbed his briefcase and set it down. He unlocked the case, silently but left the lid closed. "Your practical Charms classes start today." The professor had a wicked grin on his handsome features, "On your feet!"

    Obviously I do not have enough characters yet >>

    Please meet Leandra Floros (name might change but that's it for now) who wants to apply as professor at Koldovstoretz. She's a thirty-something Zhivoystya graduate who loves Herbology (and naturally has a NEWT in it) and would like to share her knowledge with the kids who return to Koldovstoretz. She is a kind young woman, quite self-conscious, a dreamer and yet she knows very much about all sorts of plants.  She's a rather clumsy so some little mishaps are bound to happen sooner or later.



    Leandra was nervous. She had been rearranging the elements in the greenhouse at Koldovstoretz a couple of times already. She bit her lip thoughtfully, pushed her glasses up the bridge of her nose and mused whether the students would feel at home in her greenhouse. They were just back from a year away at Durmstrang - a year that had hardly been pleasant. She wanted them to feel welcome in her classroom, wanted them to enjoy her lesson and yet she wasn't sure if she could achieve that.

    Doubts were busying her, almost fogging her mind. Why had she applied for the teacher position again? She was not a professor... The young woman exhaled loudly, reminding herself of why she had applied in the first place. She loved Koldovstoretz although her time as a student had not always been easy. She loved children and wanted to help them become the best adult version of themselves. Furthermore the former Zhivoystya loved Herbology and could talk about it all the time. Besides there was no better place to work with plants than here. Last but not least Leandra liked the idea of a status, the idea of a stable position.

    She waved her wand again, this time to shut the blends of the entrance area of her greenhouse. The Devil's Snare would spread quickly and her plan was to see if her students knew enough to get past it to start the actual lesson. It was a little challenge on their way into the greenhouse, figuratively spoken it was like their last year - they had to survive it in order to get to a place that felt like home. This was a first task they'd have to get through in order to reach the actual lesson. Naturally the young woman would keep an eye on the students in order to protect or assist them if needed. She did not want any of her students to get hurt, after all.

    Inside she had a large table put up in the centre of the greenhouse with benches in front of either side. On the table there were baskets with soil, pots, watering cans (though without water in them) and some plants. She had not much else planned for her students than to identify and categorise some plants she had put there. This was going to be a sort of quiz with the students trying to earn points for their houses but most of all they should have fun.

    She felt how her heartbeat quickened as the time of her students' arrival came closer. Nervously the young professor fidgeted with her hair, uncertain if it had been a good idea to leave it open or if she should have better tied it up. Damn, why was she so self-conscious, she scolded herself. Her hand was trembling slightly when she wrote a brief note for her students on a huge piece of parchment.


    "Beware of this plant guarding the entrance.
    Only try and get through it when you've worked out what you are facing.
    Feel free to work in teams - preferably of your own houses.
    Good luck and see you inside!"


    She took the back door out of the greenhouse to put the sign up in front of the main entrance and then went back into the greenhouse, waiting impatiently to see and hear her students, her class, to approach.

She wanted them to feel welcome in her classroom, wanted them to enjoy her lesson and yet she wasn't sure if she could achieve that.

    Doubts were busying her, almost fogging her mind. Why had she applied for the teacher position again? She was not a professor... The young woman exhaled loudly, reminding herself of why she had applied in the first place. She loved Koldovstoretz although her time as a student had not always been easy. She loved children and wanted to help them become the best adult version of themselves. Furthermore the former Zhivoystya loved Herbology and could talk about it all the time. Besides there was no better place to work with plants than here. Last but not least Leandra liked the idea of a status, the idea of a stable position.

    She waved her wand again, this time to shut the blends of the entrance area of her greenhouse. The Devil's Snare would spread quickly and her plan was to see if her students knew enough to get past it to start the actual lesson. It was a little challenge on their way into the greenhouse, figuratively spoken it was like their last year - they had to survive it in order to get to a place that felt like home. This was a first task they'd have to get through in order to reach the actual lesson. Naturally the young woman would keep an eye on the students in order to protect or assist them if needed. She did not want any of her students to get hurt, after all.

    Inside she had a large table put up in the centre of the greenhouse with benches in front of either side. On the table there were baskets with soil, pots, watering cans (though without water in them) and some plants. She had not much else planned for her students than to identify and categorise some plants she had put there. This was going to be a sort of quiz with the students trying to earn points for their houses but most of all they should have fun.

    She felt how her heartbeat quickened as the time of her students' arrival came closer. Nervously the young professor fidgeted with her hair, uncertain if it had been a good idea to leave it open or if she should have better tied it up. Damn, why was she so self-conscious, she scolded herself. Her hand was trembling slightly when she wrote a brief note for her students on a huge piece of parchment.


    "Beware of this plant guarding the entrance.
    Only try and get through it when you've worked out what you are facing.
    Feel free to work in teams - preferably of your own houses.
    Good luck and see you inside!"


    She took the back door out of the greenhouse to put the sign up in front of the main entrance and then went back into the greenhouse, waiting impatiently to see and hear her students, her class, to approach.

    [toy] OPEN POSITION AT HOGWARTS! New Class!![/toy]

    Wizarding Culture

    Due to the tumult of the past decades at Hogwarts and the surrounding areas, Hogwarts is now offering a Wizarding Culture class. This class will focus on aspects of the Wizarding World that are sometimes common knowledge to wizarding folk, but not to all. This class will focus on wizarding traditions, culture, and communities both inside and outside of Great Britain. Students will learn about wizarding banking, why one needs to service their wands, and the history behind the founding of the Ministry of Magic. This class is mandatory for all students from first through third year, and students who attended Hogwarts during the War. Teachers who apply should be entrenched in the Wizarding World with knowledge of cultures outside of the one they were born in and should not be biased towards any aspect of the Wizarding World, especially bloodstatus.

    [toy]Please pm @Toya with your applications and questions. [/toy]

    I would like to apply for the Rounic Magic professorship at Koldovstoretz because I am apparently a glutton for punishment. Misspelling of the subject is explained in my roleplay sample. Please meet Turkish Muggleborn witch Bircan Akyildiz, who will elaborate:




    "Quiet down," Professor Akyildiz said sharply. "Turn in your textbooks to page 76 on the Käymäjärvi Inscriptions." She scowled as she looked over the class, who were moving too lazily for her taste and making more noise than was necessary to simply take out a book and open it. But this was the cost of teaching modern children. They lacked discipline, and as an instructor it was her job to force them into the proper mold and straighten them out. Some might say it was a losing battle, but Bircan Akyildiz did not lose, ever. "With silence and celerity, please," she said even louder, and the room hushed quickly as students obeyed and found their place. Bircan nodded firmly and began walking between the desks as she began her lecture.

    "As you probably know from the name of this course, we are here to learn about Uralic roun magic. The Käymäjärvi Inscriptions are an example of Sami rounets. The Sami witches were among the first in wizardkind to realise that individual letters could be considered magical words in their own right, and to reason out that what we call words came to mean what they do because of the way that they were spelled out - that is, literally, the individual letters or 'rouns' cast a spell to interact with each other, forming an analogue that described something," she slapped her wand down on the shoulder of a near-sleeping student, jolting the boy awake and making his hair stand on end with static shock, "physical. Detention," she growled at the alarmed-looking boy, before proceeding back to the front of the classroom.

    "The Nords, Danes, and Angles would eventually make similar discoveries about what they called 'runes,'" Bircan went on mercilessly, "but instead of using them to connect to physical acts of magic, their runes would be used to shape and direct energy. Examine the picture on page 76 for a moment." She paused, affixing the entire class at once with a penetrating glare, and the children all hurriedly lowered their gazes to look at the illustration. "This is Birch bark letter number 292. This is no random splattering of stems and branches like the so-called fuþark. This is raw Cyrillic, and the language is an old Finnic dialect of Russian called Karelian." A bit of pride filled her voice. "This is true written magic, and this is what we hope to teach you in this class.

    "Not all of you will succeed, however. In fact, I have little hope that most of you will comprehend enough of the subtleties to enchant the colour of a single brick." She sighed, and went on, "But you'll certainly learn nothing if you do not read your text or fail to complete your coursework, so I expect nothing but complete commitment to your academic pursuits or you will be spending many of your free time hours in this classroom catching up, and [span style="font-variant: small-caps;"]believe me,[/span]" she smiled viciously, "if that eventuality occurs, I have no reluctance about keeping you hexed to your seat until I have managed to affix the lesson firmly into your heads, even if it takes all night. I trust I have been clear." Several quick, silent nods confirmed to Bircan that at last they understood. "Now. Let's take this apart one roun at a time."
