We are looking for a qualified English teacher whose aim is to broaden and enrich their skills in an international setting. Our Christian school is always looking for committed Christians yearning for a nourishing atmosphere and the opportunity to integrate their faith into their professional practice. For 25 years we have seen how this works to inspire and enrich the learning experience for all our students. Our fusion of cultures and backgrounds make our school a vibrant, diverse and joyful place to be. To top this off, we get to live and work in a country so beautiful Winston Churchill declared it ‘the pearl of Africa’!
The suitable candidate must be an internationally qualified and experienced Secondary English Teacher. English Language and Literature is taught using the Common Core State Standards (American Curriculum) across grades 6-12. We are looking for a passionate and dedicated professional who is able to foster creativity, develop critical thinking and analytical skills as well as inspire students as writers. Units include Western Literature, World Literature, American Literature and British Literature and creative and transactional writing. We expect our teachers to be reflective practitioners who can evaluate their own practice and develop the learning in their classroom. We are also interested in teachers who have experience of using dynamic and creative ways to biblically integrate the curriculum. An ability to teach drama would also be of interest.
