Secondary English Language Arts (including English Literature)

The American International School of Bamako is an independent college-preparatory day school offering a dynamic, student-centered educational program for students from Pre-kindergarten through grade 12. The current enrollment is about 120 students. Our student body is fully international and includes students representing more than 25 nationalities. AISB graduates attend fine colleges and universities around the world. AISB is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) and is a full member of the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA).

We are searching for secondary English language arts teachers who can teach literature and build writing skills in students from G7 to G12. Such a teacher must be able to teach multigrade classes and differentiate for student needs. Most of our students are fluent English speakers, but we have students who come to the school with little to no English. Those students take ESOL classes but the English Language Arts Teacher is also expected to adjust for their level of English and integrate these students into their English classes.
