Job Description

Primary Math & Science Teacher

Department:Instruction
Office:BASIS International School Bangkok
Location:Bangkok

BASIS International School Bangkok is seeking qualified candidates for Primary Math & Science Teacher for the 2019-2020 school year!

BASIS Teachers are knowledgeable, passionate, and believe in transforming education. As part of a uniquely collaborative and professional teaching community, BASIS teachers motivate students to reach their highest potential, while also elevating their own skills through peer collaboration and a culture where learning is of the greatest importance. Our primary classrooms are taught by two teachers--one Subject Expert Teacher (SET) and one Learning Expert Teacher (LET).

BASIS International Primary Subject Expert Teachers are able to focus their teaching preparation and instruction on a specific subject rather than preparing lessons for several subjects every day. The result is better prepared, deep, subject based lessons for young students. They work collaboratively with Learning Expert Teachers (LETs) to cultivate a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and where intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary student outcomes. At the primary level, LETs help you focus on instruction while they ensure individual student understanding according to student needs. As a Math/Science Subject Expert Teacher, it is primarily your responsibility to develop engaging, content-rich subject specific lesson plans and to teach creative thinking and problem solving. 

Primary Math/Science teachers stimulate and encourage students' natural curiosity while teaching foundational math and scientific concepts. Teachers have the freedom to present and teach the concepts in their own way. Basic addition and subtraction turn into practical applications such as making change, the scientific method shows students how everyone uses science in daily life. A teacher's passion can spark a lifetime of interest and learning, and we encourage our Subject Expert Teachers to allow their enthusiasm for their subject to inspire their students.

Primary Job Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  1. Prepare subject specific lessons in Math and Science for primary school-aged students.
  2. Provide subject instruction on a higher level than grade standard, in an interactive learning environment and delivering exceptional results for all students.
  3. Implement BASIS Curriculum by designing effective and creative lessons and assessments to ensure students' education is at an internationally competitive level.
  4. Collaborate with other BASIS International teachers to form a community of smart, talented and interesting people who are passionate about education and readily willing to work in a professional, academic environment.
  5. Tutor students in content-specific knowledge and skills to heighten the trajectory of students' academic and career success.
  6. Manage student behavior to foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, intellect, and individuality in all students.

Job Qualifications

  • A Bachelor's degree in math or a science field; or a degree in Elementary/Primary Education with additional course work, or special certification for math & science teaching
    • Documentation of passage of a state or national authorized subject test in the teaching area may fulfill the special certification
  • Minimum two years teaching experience as a lead teacher required
  • Must be able to successfully pass a background clearance

Preferred: Subject matter postgraduate work (Master's or Ph.D.) is preferred. Together with a high level of educational attainment, a successful applicant will demonstrate strong communication skills in teaching ideas, texts, and concepts with precision and confidence. Must be open to new ideas in teaching.

Salary & Benefits

Salary for this position is competitive and dependent on education and experience. BASIS International Schools offers a comprehensive benefits package, including health coverage, housing allowance, travel assistance, and more. Assistance in obtaining a visa will be provided.
