Taipei, Taiwan - Public School Full-Time Positions
Date 2017-08-10 19:08:08 Location : Asia:Taiwan
Are you a state-certified teacher who wants to work overseas AND still make a difference? Work in the public schools! Taiwan’s public schools have a VERY unique opportunity working with 5th graders: a summer camp-style program that acts as an outreach to students whose parents may not be able to send them to after-school English center every day.
We seek to immerse these students in a three-day camp where they can discover English through activities. Some of our classes:
Western Food & Drink
Some of our locations: in the green foothills, next to the ocean, adjacent to a golf course and in the city.
Our positions run from August 1st this year through July 31st, 2018. So, these are all long-term positions.
At each location you can develop your own class – if you are a music teacher you could teach a music class. If you are an art teacher, you could teach art. Or, teach one of the existing subject.
The goal – use fun activities as a vehicle for comprehension. No mill and drill – get out of your seats, get outdoors! Let students learn English IN THE PROCESS OF DOING THINGS and having fun.
You’ll work with teams of from four to nine other native English-speaking licensed school teachers.
Passionate educators who like impactful lessons and learning by doing; teachers who can measure progress by the amount of speaking and thinking a lesson or activity encourages are who we are looking for.
Complete support from the state, state-of-the-art classrooms – everything you need to make classes interesting is provided.
Here’s the philosophy: for those students who may not have all the money in the world give them a chance to have their own summer camp experience, where English becomes far, far more than just a requirement and becomes instead a memory – of something fun, exciting and communicative! Something where they were able to figure out the right answer because it was done in a fun environment, students working together. So they can then take that sense of wonder back to their homes, and classrooms, tell their parents and teachers: “I like English!”. A belief that, for a 5th grader, can realign their opportunities for the rest of their lives. If that’s the kind of impact you’re interested in making, then ours is the program for you!
