Your dream classroom awaits you as you travel to New Zealand, SE Asia, South America and Costa Rica with an engaging and adventurous group of two families with five preschool to elementary-aged children. This adventure begins in February and ends in June of 2019 and the families are excited to find two wonderful educators to join them on this exciting journey.
The students in your mobile classrooms will be a preschooler, first grader, 2 third graders, and a fifth grader. These two families hail from California and Chicago, travel often together and have been planning this great getaway for over a year!
In this role, the educators will draw on their classroom, tutoring, and private education experience to research and develop a curriculum that utilizes their surroundings to make for a memorable semester abroad. The family is looking for two candidates who possess different areas of expertise, who can work together to support their adventurous students:
- A candidate who can has an elementary education background and can build from an online curriculum to meet academic milestones.
- A candidate who has a background in Montessori philosophy, early childhood education experience, and comfortability taking on some childcare responsibilities in addition to their role as a preschool educator
The family will provide a framework of academic milestones to be met for the students ranging from preschool to 5th grade, but will leave the coursework, lesson planning, field trips, and experiments up to their educators!
This is a wonderful opportunity for active, adventurous, self-starting and positive educators. Candidates who have experience traveling as an educator or childcare provider will do very well in this role and will be given preference. Having a good sense of surroundings, flexibility to meet challenges and opportunities as they arise, and an eagerness to be an integral part of the team in this memorable experience will be key! A candidate who possesses a working knowledge of the Spanish language would be a big bonus!
Compensation is generous and commensurate with experience with room and board, travel expenses, paid time off and health benefits provided. The candidates will have private and shared accommodations at all destinations and the family will be excited to work with their private educators to set a weekly schedule that provides structure while allowing for the fluidity of life on the road.
This is a full-time private educator position for two candidates with availability from February through June of 2019.
