Teachers Say


This is for K-12. Masters degree preferable. Undergraduate degree in special needs essential.

This KG to Grade 12 Private English medium international school is looking for a final selection of teachers to join them for the current academic year. All applicants must have qualified teacher status, at least two years post qualifying experience due to Ministry regulations and must be able and willing to work in a cultural 100% ESL learning environment. American Curriculum experience (common core preferred) is also valued.

Teachers should be able to demonstrate a strong academic background in content knowledge, be collaborative and collegial, value the use of data to drive instruction, be assessment literate, be skilled at differentiating and engaging students, be able to utilise effective instructional strategies and be technologically proficient. It is important to note that this is not a western expatriate schools and many students are local from the UAE.

Combining the US core standards curriculum with a delivery through the philosophy of IB without the scope and sequence, the school blends the best of both worlds of a traditional American approach of text books and regular testing and a more student centred perspective. The ultimate goal is to eventually attain IB world school status retaining the American element so students can graduate with a US diploma and if they meet with the criteria and IB diploma too. Advanced Placement course are also available.

The school offers a monthly tax free salary of AED12100 for a two year experienced teacher with annual increments for every two years of experience. There are also allowances for utility bills and excess baggage, international medical insurance is provided as well as annual airfares, end of service gratuity, local bus transportation and two free places for dependent children. Accommodation is provided as part of the employment package; it is furnished and single occupancy.

95% Emirati / 99% Muslim / 100% ESL Regional Info: Al Ain is the garden city of the Arabian Gulf enjoying a tranquil and green existence in the protective shadow of the precipitous Hajar Mountains.

Without frustrating traffic jams and an abundance of glitzy skyscrapers Al Ain provides a calm and relaxing lifestyle nicely balancing the old and the new. Tradition and modern ways of life combine to offer the best of both worlds; there are huge shopping malls and old souks; there are hotels full of restaurants, bars and sports clubs and forts teeming with history and discovery; there is something for everyone. Adventure beckons the outdoor type with lots of mountain and desert activities and if a quiet day on the beach is the order of the day then both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are just an hour away by car.
