Job Posting: Teacher (Elementary)

The International School of Djibouti is seeking three school teachers for our second year of operation. The successful candidate will take up the appointment September 1st 2017 or earlier. We have four classrooms which include a preschool, a K - 2nd grade class, a 3rd - 8th grade class, and a web-based high school. Currently, we have around 20 students.
