Salome Urena #8
Las Terrenas
Dominican Republic


Dynamic, excellent teacher, passionate about children and education needed for a progressive, alternative International School.

Creativity, flexibility, resourcefulness and an adventurous spirit will be the keys to success for the teacher I need to complete our teaching team for the rest of the 2018 - 2019 school year. If you would truly enjoy being part of a diverse, progressive, developing school, teaching a small class (maximum 16 per class) in an environment that encourages creativity and innovation, while living in a small tourist town set on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, this may be the position for you. The Samana Peninsula, in the Northeast of the Dominican Republic, was named recently by the New Yorker as one of the 50 best places to visit for its unspoiled beauty.

Looking for experienced teachers (though outstanding 1st year teachers will be considered). Bilingual English/Spanish preferred. Creative, innovative and flexible with a desire to be part of a very small, new program and help in its planning and growth. The ideal candidate will have experience with exploratory, project-based education, and relish the freedom from teaching to tests that we can offer. Ideally you are a native English speaker who is also fluent in Spanish, has previously lived overseas and be interested in the community service programs and social justice mission of the partner foundation as well. Must be in good health.

Las Terrenas International School is part of a small, local, non-profit organization, Fundacion Mahatma Gandhi, and thus truly dedicated to quality education for all.

Level of Language Proficiency
