Atitlan Multicultural Academy (AMA) is seeking primary school teachers for school year September 2021 to June 2022.

About AMA:

http://www.ama.edu.gt

Atitlán Multicultural Academy (AMA) is an accredited English language pre-K through twelfth grade school located in Panajachel, Guatemala, on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlán. AMA is staffed by qualified teachers from the United States and other English-speaking countries, as well as from Guatemala. AMA's student body is very ethnically and economically diverse with many students from local Mayan villages and the surrounding Panajachel area; we believe this diversity makes AMA a fascinating and healthy community.

AMA offers small class sizes, a progressive curriculum with project-based constructivist learning. Due to the small size of the school, the classes often include more than one grade. Very few students have English as their native tongue and hence the experience includes a lot of ESL teaching (English as a Second Language).

AMA is a small, friendly school that provides a world-class, twenty-first century learning environment. Teachers provide individualized learning and support for all students. Graduating AMA seniors go on to attend universities in Guatemala, the United States, and Europe, or go on to work in the public and private sectors in Guatemala. AMA's motto, "Whole People, Whole Planet" reflects both our vision and our daily goal.

Required Qualifications:

• 4-year degree

• Elementary teaching certification

Preferred Experience:

• Experience working with young students

• Experience working with English Language Learners

• Ability to develop and implement an innovative curriculum and teaching methods

• At least 1 year classroom teaching experience

• Experience living/working in a developing country (Latin America preferred)

• Proficiency in Spanish
