Banjul American International School is a very small, well-established international school in The Gambia offering an American standards-based curriculum within a global context. Our total enrollment is large this year at 65 students from Pre-kindergarten to Grade 12, and our 2 graduating seniors have both been accepted to universities in the USA. 

BAIS seeks an experienced teaching couple or single hire who believes that every student (whether above, below, or at the average level) should have teachers committed to ensuring they reach their maximum potential. One of the teachers should be an outstanding elementary teacher who understands that a systematic teaching of decoding, phonemic awareness and vocabulary leads to strong readers and writers. A conceptual understanding of mathematics is needed for long-term success. They should be inspirational and equally hold high expectations for presentation, inquiry, and reasoning skills and create innovative units to provoke wonder.

If you are flexible and hard-working, have a sense of humor, and are ready to dedicate yourself to 7 to 14 students and a small school and community in a developing (yet tourist-based) country, please apply right away.
