Minerva School is seeking qualified and responsible individuals to work with us. With annual cohorts of International Teachers and a permanent Honduran staff, the school offers instruction in both English and Spanish to 490 students ranging in age from pre-kindergarten to eleventh grade. All Minerva students come from Gracias and the surrounding communities.
Teaching at Minerva is about more than classroom instruction. You will have the unique learning experience of working closely with both Honduran and International staff. This offers the opportunity to improve Spanish language skills and be completely immersed in Honduran culture. International teachers at Minerva become active members of Gracias, establish new friendships and contacts, and have the ability to become leaders at school and within the community. Also, teaching ESL learners in a developing country can be a challenge to teachers and a great addition to your resume.
The fulfillment of our mission lies in the hands of our teachers. We seek qualified and responsible individuals to work with us. To be an international teacher at Minerva, we require a bachelor’s degree, experience in education, commitment for an entire academic year, and strong oral and written communication skills. Applicants with teaching certification and experience living abroad are preferred.
The ideal international teacher at Minerva is hard-working, flexible, creative and self-motivated. As a member of the Minerva staff, you will have the unique opportunity to not only teach, but also be an integral member of a small, multicultural team committed to providing a life-changing education for the students of Gracias. Because of this, we seek individuals who are committed to engaging our community and igniting positive change inside and outside of school.
We are very proud of our international teaching staff at Minerva. Throughout their time here, they make an invaluable impact on the lives of our students, the development of our school, and the community of Gracias, Lempira.
Please consider joining our team!
Laid-back and welcoming, Honduras is known for its unspoiled beaches and forest. Teaching in Honduras is an opportunity for adventurous explorers to live in a country where their work as teachers is greatly appreciated, and where students’ hospitality and sociability will make them feel right at home.
