Atitlan Multicultural Academy (AMA) is seeking school teachers for school year September 2020 to June 2021.

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. Only 3% of students have English as their native tongue and hence the experience includes a lot of ESL teaching (English as a Second Language).

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:

  • Passion, energy, and drive for implementing educational components that will establish Colegio AMA as a successful and sustainable institution.
  • 4-year degree
  • Subject specific teaching certification
  • Spanish Level: Professional Working Proficiency is required
  • A commitment to a minimum 10 month volunteer contract is non-negotiable and must be fulfilled.


Preferred Experience:

  • At least 2 years classroom teaching experience
  • Experience working with English Language Learners
  • Demonstrated classroom, school or professional leadership
  • Experience living or working in Latin America.
  • Both Guatemalan nationals and international teachers are encouraged to apply.


Successful applicants can expect a three-step application process which includes the following:

  • Traditional interview with the school academic director to learn more about the candidate and the candidate's best teaching practices.
  • Spanish speaking interview to assess the candidate's current language level.
  • Informal interview with current staff member to give candidate the chance to ask questions about the school, student population, and current developments.
