Description

We are looking for an English teacher to start August 2018 and teach grades 1-6. This position would last until November 2018 with the possibility of renewal in our 2019 school year.


We are a young Waldorf school on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlan in the western highlands of Guatemala. We are the first and only Waldorf school in Guatemala, currently in our eleventh year with around 90 children between kindergarten and the sixth grade. Our small Mayan pueblo has one main road, and everyone gets around town on foot. San Marcos La Laguna is a very poor village, so we look for sponsors for local Mayan children, who comprise the mayority of our students. 


Our calendar is year-round, starting in January and ending in November, with one month breaks in Jun/July and December/January.


Eagerness to learn about indigenous culture, a spirit of service, and a sense of adventure are also required.
