Wonderful World International School has two (2) full time preschool teacher positions available for the 2020 school year (April start). 

We are looking for motivated, energetic applicants who enjoy working with young children to see them reach their full potential.

It is a highly rewarding position that is best suited for those who have a genuine passion for seeing students grow and learn.

We foster a love for learning and exploring and are looking for teachers with the ability to connect with the students and create a positive, caring, meaningful, and learning-centered classroom environment. Our students are fun, energetic, love coming to school and are able to function in an all-English environment.

A typical day involves welcoming the students, attendance, english / phonics lessons, play time, lunch, then afternoon lessons and activities (such as art, music, drama, science etc.) The curriculum and materials are set, however, within this framework, teachers, have a great deal of freedom to implement their own ideas and activities based on the students’ needs at the time.
