Homeschool Teacher

Our environment is a beautiful place with vibrant color and incredible sensory experiences in the foothills of the Himalayas. Long term workers in our city of 3 million are looking for a homeschool teacher to assist in supplementing material, pioneer a homeschooling co-op between parents, and help in creating curriculum for a for a small group of Western expat children. We desire our children to grow on multiple realms and become well rounded and curious learners. Most of these children are in local schools, but need supplementation in Arts, Music, Reading, and hands on STEM projects. The time is coming to transition them slowly out of local schools and prepare them for a more international schooling experience.

We are looking for 1 teacher to:
•Engage in teaching expat children in a variety of educational experiences and activities, 5 days a week.
•Weave in activities such as Art, Music, Reading, Physical Education and hands on STEM, which are particularly lacking in our current educational system.
•Work with parents to create or consult on a Homeschool curriculum for children ages 7-10.
•We are also interested in someone who has experience with another language. Most of our children are already bi-lingual, but we are interested in someone who could possibly teach Spanish, French, Mandarin or Korean as a third language.
•Possible role for the future- Assist homeschool parents to create materials and rich learning experience for children 10-13. These children in the older age category are already experienced homeschoolers, and the parents are requesting assistance in deepening and enriching the education of their children.

Aside from homeschooling, we do encourage the homeschool teacher to get involved in local ministry and be a part of our vibrant community. Learning a bit of the local language is encouraged as is cultural immersion and making friends in the local community. We don’t want our teachers to feel that their only job is to spend time with foreigners. We really want them to have an immersive, cross-cultural experience.
