Teaching English in Somalia
Date posted:2016-04-07 | Writer: Abaarso School of Science and Technology | Email: email@example.com
Abaarso School is looking for TEFL skilled individuals interested in training the top secondary school students in a deeply underprivileged section of the world. We are located in in Abaarso, Hargeisa, Somaliland. The Republic of Somaliland, a self-declared state, is internationally recognized as an autonomous region of Somalia.
Abaarso School, featured in the New York Times and BBC World, is a non-profit boarding high school educating the best and the brightest Somali students in the Horn of Africa. The school prepares students to excel in higher education, while also focusing on extracurricular activities and community service. While only founded in 2009, Abaarso School has achieved success not seen in the area for several decades. After three graduating classes, Abaarso has placed over 60 Somali students on international scholarships including dozens in the United States. Abaarso School graduates have been admitted to schools like Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Brown, MIT, Georgetown, Amherst, Carnegie Mellon, and many more.
We are looking for individuals interested in dedicating at least one year to training these top high school students. Teachers will join the school culture that puts the growth of the school and the students first, while finding a way around the challenges inherent in working in the developing world. Between the classroom, preparation, student groups, office hours, and other projects, teachers should expect 60-70 hours of work each week. With successful performance, significant upward mobility is possible for staff members.
The following qualifications and experiences are highly desired: - prior teaching experience, altruistic work/volunteer experience, experiencing working with children, prior work or study experience in developing countries.
