Our client is a non-profit, international preK-6 school located in Panajachel, Guatemala on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlan.

The positions are a full-time teaching position for a 10-month academic year from August 2019 to June 2020. Contracts for continued employment will be offered for additional years based on performance, as we love to have teachers who are interested in being around for more than a year.

Available positions include :

    We have specials teachers who give classes in Spanish and physical education.

    Please note that in order to apply for teaching positions at LIFE School, you must have a degree in early childhood, elementary, or secondary education, and / or be state-certified.
