INTERNSHIP: HSMS is offering a position to teach English in our kindergarten & 1st grade classes. We prefer someone who speaks only English as our teaching program is built on language immersion methods. We are a young staff who adore our kids and work hard during the week and chill at the beach, in the mountains or in town with the locals on the weekends. We are driven by a vision that models the love of Jesus through educating some of the most unlikely or given up on children of Haiti. We thrive on knowing that these children will be forever changed by their opportunity to be apart of HSMS school. We are of the highest quality education in the south of Haiti and although we are newly founded we are seeing incredible results in our kids in the past 2 years of school.
Expect to fall in love with your students, to learn more about how to teach and develop the entire being of a child, to fall in love with this relationally rich people, to join a team who loves what God has called us into, and to forever be changed yourself as you experience new culture and life. We as a staff live and eat together on the school property in a quite comfortable house with 24/7 water and electric.
