DescriptionPioneers Baccalaureate School in Nablus, Palestine, is currently hiring English Language teachers for the following positions. Full-time English Language teachers generally teach 2 classes of the same or similar grade levels, seeing each class every day for approximately 90-120 minutes. Full-time positions are around 24 class periods per week, with the remaining time for planning, grading, and supervisory duties (morning, afternoon, or break). Positions are classified according to school.
Elementary School (Grades 1-5)
Middle School (Grades 6-8)
High School (Grades 9-12)
All English classes are full English immersion. Early elementary classes introduce students to English letters, sounds, and written forms, and focus on steadily increasing students' reading, writing, listening, speaking, and grammar capabilities in English as well as instilling positive classroom behavior and a joy of learning. In later elementary and middle school classes, students read both fictional and informational books, novels, or other texts and develop their reading, writing, and grammar skills.
Teachers are responsible for using and following the curriculum and curriculum map provided by the school. Teachers are also responsible for developing their own supporting materials and weekly lesson plans. Teachers should feel comfortable working independently and be ready to dedicate time to planning thoughtful and rigorous lessons, which help students learn how to think critically and guide them to consider multiple ways and methods of solving problems, through which they apply what they have learned to solve problems they face in their own lives. Games, activities, and projects that engage students and support learning are highly encouraged at all grade levels.
With around 300,000 people, Nablus is one of the largest cities on the West Bank. Teachers are able to form lasting relationships with colleagues and friends, take advantage of opportunities to learn or practice Arabic, and travel on holidays, weekends, and breaks to explore all the West Bank has to offer. Nablus is still a conservative city with respect to the West Bank as a whole, and in order to maintain the school's good reputation and standing in the community, foreign teachers are expected to uphold certain standards of behaviour and dress during their tenure with the school.
Benefits- First-year teachers receive 2200 New Israeli Shekels per month (a livable and competitive starting teacher salary in Nablus), with additional increments for subject matter, experience, and qualifications as determined during the interview process, in addition to a 100 shekel monthly transportation stipend.
- Housing (private room in a shared apartment (3-4 people)) with all utilities including water, electricity, and internet covered.
- Round-trip airfare and visa costs covered.
- Government health insurance provided.
- Putting Non-Native Arabic speakers in contact with centers that provide Arabic lessons.
Requirements- English language fluency (required).
- Bachelor's degree.
