Kindergarten Teacher - American International School - Kuwait

AIS nurtures students within a highly engaging, motivating professional culture built on the norms of collaboration and supportive instructional coaching. An AIS educator sees themselves as a role model within a classroom environment that is academically rigorous, inclusive, and driven by the inquiring mind of a diverse student body. Within our educational programs and initiatives, teachers and leaders are supported in their personal growth and development. We personalize the learning experience in progressive and meaningful ways through collaborative professional development time and externally through digital learning platforms and media that challenge our thinking and the actions we take within the classroom. Professional development is continuous and expected, and at AIS, we are often setting the bar rather than responding to outside influencers. Each time we gather, we strive to learn and grow from one another. The IB frames our learning and that of the student learning experience. Our accrediting authorities provide us the feedback we need to continuously demonstrate improvement and we are often looking at data as a way to provide the most significant experience to our students. Our new staff experience the rewards of professional dialogue accompanied with spontaneity and friendship, as well as open and honest communication alongside professionalism and collegiality. This paves the way for trusting relationships that are pillars of a well spirited school community. We also seek balance and our rich menu of athletics and activities programs at AIS, as well as social communities and gatherings, help achieve this. Kuwait offers an ideal opportunity for staff to become life-long friends and colleagues. With provided housing and very limited expenses, staff are able to live close to school, allowing for easy collaboration, and are able to afford the travel excursions offered within, and just outside of, the Middle Eastern region.

Our Early Childhood program starts at age 3 with Pre-K and continues through age 4 (KG-1) and age 5 (KG-2). Our program is framed by the Primary Years Programme with students immersed in play-based learning environments.

The teacher must provide a planned instructional program of teaching and assessment which embraces the philosophy, standards, and curriculum of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in concert with their grade level team under the guidance of the PYP coordinator and Pedagogical Leadership Team.
