Pioneers Baccalaureate School in Nablus, Palestine (www.pioneers.ps) is currently hiring English teachers for the 2020-2021 school year (August 2020-May 2021)! 


Job Description:

We have a number of open teaching positions in the elementary (grades 1-5), middle (grades 6-8), and high (grades 9-12) school. 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, and speaking 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 texts and develop their skills in reading comprehension, writing, and grammar. High school students continue to read a wide variety of texts as well as preparing for the SAT I and SAT II English Language exams. Please indicate preferred position(s) in the application.


Specific teaching certification is not required, but prior teaching experience or experience working with children/youth is preferred. The most successful teachers at Pioneers are those that are flexible, innovative, and committed to creating unique educational opportunities for Palestinian students. 


Teaching positions are full-time, amounting to about 20 teaching hours per week (with additional time commitments for planning and school duties). 


Salary: 2000 New Israeli Shekels per month, equivalent to approximately $580 at the current exchange rate of 3.45. (The exchange rate has fluctuated in the past between 3.4 and 3.9, which may impact the dollar exchange.) This is comparable with a good local salary. Local teachers at Pioneers receive 1800 shekels per month for their first year, a competitive starting teacher salary in the city of Nablus. Housing, a travel stipend, and visa coordination are provided.


Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Our hiring process begins with a general screening interview, followed by second interviews based on specific positions. This position starts in August 2020.


About our program:

We are a bilingual Arabic/English school serving Grades K-12. Our International Program follows the American Common Core Standards, and our High School students take SAT exams, rather than the national Palestinian exam. Pioneers Baccalaureate School was founded to provide a level of education unavailable in Nablus. We challenge and inspire our students to achieve their intellectual and personal potential by approaching each as a unique individual. Utilizing the best of modern pedagogy, while staying true to our Palestinian roots, Pioneers prepares students to be competitive on a global scale. Our graduates will be prepared to innovate, think creatively, and contribute to building a better Palestine and a better world.


About our city:

Nablus was one of the Palestinian cities hit hardest by the Second Intifada, but it is currently undergoing an economic rebirth. With around 300,000 people, it is one of the largest cities in the West Bank. 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 behavior and dress during their tenure with the school. Teachers are able to form lasting relationships with colleagues and friends, take advantage of opportunities to learn or practice Arabic, and explore all the West Bank has to offer.
