DescriptionThe organization operates the Mungere School near the town of Mto wa Mbu in the northern Arusha Region. Red Sweater Project is accepting applications for an ESL/ELL English Teacher to instruct beginning, intermediate and advanced English language courses at the Mungere School, with the aim of engaging students aged 11-15 to understand, read, write and speak English.
Mungere students live in a remote tribal community, where English is rarely spoken and primary school is taught in the local language of Swahili. Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is in English medium and the language barrier can be a significant obstacle to learning. Teachers engage students to actively participate in English classes and extra-curricular activities designed to broaden skills.
- Alongside teaching staff, execute and manage Mungere’s English program, engaging students through creative curriculum development, innovative lesson planning, and interactive pedagogy
- Create stimulating and active classroom activities; assess and monitor student learning outcomes
- Assist in the coordination of academic and extra-curricular activities
- Assist with school projects, administration and instructor development as needed
As you experience life in a remote tribal community and explore Tanzania’s scenery and wildlife, it is difficult not to fall in love with the country and its people. Mungere Village is nestled in Africa’s Great Rift Valley, a short distance from Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti Plains and other unique destinations. Travel further from the village to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro or enjoy the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar Island.
