Open the door to teaching at TAISM
Find out why it’s the best-kept secret in international teaching
It takes a special kind of person to be an educator in the overseas teaching market. It’s not just about educational credentials and experience qualifications. Our most successful teachers possess energetic and adventurous spirits. They are confident, flexible, and innovative. They create the best possible learning environment for their students, utilizing a dynamic American and international curriculum. Here are some points to think about when considering the choice of teaching in Oman…
A school you would choose for your own children
Combine excellence in education for students in Early Childhood to Grade 12 with outstanding co-curricular programs. Enjoy teaching an American curriculum in an English-medium, co-educational, college preparatory school setting.
A circle of friends you will have as a support system
Join an exceptional team of educators. Inspired and enthusiastic teachers of Kindergarten to Grade 12 – primarily American and Canadian - come to us from all over the world, and bring an international strength to our faculty. You’ll establish a lifelong network of colleagues and friends.
An international student body that will enrich your life
Teach (and learn!) in a school where the students represent more than 60 nationalities. Step beyond your borders and embrace the experience of teaching an ethnically diverse student body!
Small class sizes that will nurture true connections
Imagine the personal and professional satisfaction as you apply your creative teaching expertise in an intimate class setting. The typical class size at TAISM does not exceed 20 students.
Opportunities that will expand and challenge professional growth
Think Professional Development on a worldwide scale. Seminars, conferences, and workshops are offered regionally and globally from London to Bangkok. Connect with your peers – those like you – who want to sharpen their skills and share a commitment to excel. Participate in workshops, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification, Conferences, and Masters/Graduate courses – all aligned with your professional development goals - with help from potential funding from TAISM.
