Hobby School is looking for a candidate to fill in the position of ELA teacher in middle school.
This is a full-time job Monday to Friday with a maximum of 25 teaching hours per week (the duration of each teaching hour is 40 minutes). The ELA classes in middle school will be closely aligned with the IMYC (International Middle Years Curriculum) Big Ideas. The IMYC connects all learning of the students within the framework of a single Big Idea, therefore, a great deal of teamwork and creativity is essential.
We are looking for teachers who are ready and willing to work in a new and challenging environment. You will have the opportunity to work alongside many teachers who are hard-working, dedicated and passionate - qualities that the successful candidate will need to bring with them to our community of 800 students and 60+ educators.
Prior experience in teaching overseas, especially in the developing world countries woudl be a huge benefit alongside openness to new cultures. The school is a multicultural environment but with its predominantly (if not exclusively) Mongolian student body, respect for and understanding of local customs and traditions is expected.
The first independent national school in the country - Hobby School was founded in 1994, to educate the next generation of Mongolian intelligentsia, against a backdrop of tough economic conditions, rapidly growing urban population and crumbling public education system.
Hobby School is accredited by the Capital City Education Department of Mongolia and follows the State-approved General Secondary Education Curriculum of Mongolia. All students are issued an official Mongolian State Complete Secondary Education Certificate upon graduation.
In the academic year of 2017-2018, the school has an enrollment of about 800 students, in grades 1 to 12 (ages 6 to 17, approximately).
In June 2018, the school expects to graduate 58 students - historically the highest number of graduates.
The school's name, despite lending an aura of leisure, is deeply meaningful. The inspiration for the school followed on Eurasian Hobby (falco subbuteo). Falcons are revered by Mongolians as symbols of courage and vigor.
Today, the school is widely recognized as one of the best secondary education institutions in the country. In line with the founder Dr. Oyuntsetseg's vision of nurturing the next generation of Mongolian intelligentsia, Hobby School keeps its tuition fees at levels far below its peer schools in order to ensure accessibility for families from different socio-economic backgrounds. 40% of the total student body receives tuition fee waivers ranging from 10%-100%.
In addition to following the State-approved General Secondary Education Curriculum of Mongolia, the school implements an immersion-based program of English instruction. Hobby School was the first school in Mongolia to introduce The International Primary Curriculum and The International Middle Years Curriculum. The school was also the first to adopt AP courses into its curriculum. The bilingual nature of the curriculum results in added workload on our students.
Teaching in Mongolia is an opportunity for licensed educators to teach overseas in a country that boasts a rugged landscape and a fascinating culture rooted in ancient traditions.
