English teacher (1-9)

Pioneers School (www.pioneers.ps) in Nablus, Palestine is seeking English teachers to work with students in grades 1-6. Experience is preferred but not necessary. The most successful teachers at Pioneers are those that are flexible, innovative, and committed to creating unique educational opportunities for Palestinian students.

We provide on-site training, and teachers work closely with a specific coordinator to develop skills continuously throughout the year. In many aspects, the job is closer to classroom teaching than to a typical ESL classroom. Full time teachers teach around 24-26 teaching hours per week (with additional time commitments for planning and school duties).

$425 salary per month, housing and return airfare at the successful completion of the contract are provided.

About us:

We are currently a K-9 school, and each year we add a grade level. We will eventually be a full K-12. Our students are preparing to take the SAT upon completion of high school.

Pioneers Baccalaureate School was founded to provide a level of education unavailable in Nablus. We challenge and inspire our students to achieve their intellectual and personal potential by approaching each as a unique individual. Utilizing the best of modern pedagogy, while staying true to our Palestinian roots, Pioneers prepares our students to be competitive on a global scale. Our graduates will be prepared to innovate, think creatively, and contribute to building a better Palestine and a better world.

About our city:

Nablus was one of the Palestinian cities hit hardest by the Second Intifada, but it is currently undergoing an economic rebirth. With around 300,000 people, it is one of the largest cities in the West Bank.
