Extra Curricular Responsibilities
The Network of International Christian Schools is an organization that consists of 15 schools in 13 countries in Asia, Africa, South America, Europe and North America.

Reaching the world for Christ through international Christian education.
NICS (Network of International Christian Schools) is founded on the belief that a major thrust for world evangelism and discipleship for Christ can happen through the classroom with the impact made by committed Christian educators overseas. Children have many teachers in their lives, whether they be at home, in the classroom, on the street or elsewhere; none, however, have a more powerful impact than educators in the classroom.
From Andes to Amazon, Bolivia has plenty to inspire teachers looking for adventure. With over 30 official languages, the country is as diverse as it is beautiful, but modern economic development has also brought the need for English-language education. English teachers are in high demand, and opportunities are available throughout the country.
