The Job

We are now holding interviews for female Homeroom Teachers for kindergarten and grades 2 to 6 at modern international schools in the cities of Riyadh and Dammam in Saudi Arabia. We also have positions for female Math, Physics, Language Arts and Social Studies teachers from grades 7 to 12.

Our International Schools are located in the capital city of Riyadh and the  Eastern Province of Dammam in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We offer educational opportunities for Saudi and international students. Modern classrooms create a positive learning environment.

Homeroom teachers bring to this role an enthusiasm and an interest in students, a desire to work for the good of each student and a commitment to the leadership model developed within the school. Therefore teachers will ensure that the time spent with their homeroom is challenging yet affirming, allowing for growth, independence and responsibility.

Our school follows the Comprehensive Common Core Curriculum from the US. We use Pearson’s Reading Street, Envision Math and Interactive Science programs to provide scripted direct, whole group, small group and individual level instruction to our students.

Our school is comprised of mostly Saudi students who are eager to learn and have extremely supportive parents. We try to adhere to our school mission of creative thinking, valuing diversity, instilling a passion for education and respecting diversity.

In addition to responsibility for developing and monitoring the general welfare, educational progress and social development for each student, teachers have a significant responsibility for maintaining appropriate standards of student conduct, appearance and manners. They are required to address day-to-day disciplinary issues, referring difficult issues to the counselor or vice principal. Their aim should be to inculcate in their students good study habits, self-discipline and a sense of self-worth. Teachers are to encourage students to discuss issues and concerns with them.

Saudi Arabia

Its neighboring countries are Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Yemen. It has a population of over 30.7 million.

The oil-rich nation has a lot of beautiful places to offer, its greatest treasure is its rock hewn Mada’in Saleh, a pre-Islamic archaeological site which can be found in the Al-Ula sector within the Al Madinah Region.
