Opportunities

Thailand : Head Librarian

Description

Grace International School (GIS) needs new teachers to come every year and they need various staff.

Located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, GIS was created to provide a high quality Christian education for the children of international workers located in Southeast Asia. The primary goal at GIS is to allow these families to continue to work in their fields without having to compromise the education of their children.

GIS offers a strong education where biblical truth permeates all subjects and programs. Staff seek to demonstrate how diverse subjects inter-relate so that GIS students can apply knowledge and skills to all areas of life and live out their Christian faith. Ultimately, GIS aims to cultivate students of Christ-like character and values who will transform their world.

The Non-Thai faculty and staff at GIS have a strong faith in Jesus Christ and serve at Grace by raising their own support in order to keep tuition costs affordable. The result is a dedicated team committed to providing students with an outstanding education from a Christian perspective.

Full-time or part-time foreign teachers/staff come as volunteers through sending organizations and must apply for a specific job opening and go through the staff application process.

We would like you to considering serving at GIS through TEAM because it is a blessing for the TEAM missionaries who have their kids at GIS. TEAM missionary kids receive a discount when TEAM personnel serve at GIS.

The purpose of the Head Librarian is to provide a welcoming and educational atmosphere where students, staff, and parents have the opportunity to fulfill their potential for intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological growth. The head librarian will oversee the management of the GIS elementary, secondary, and extension services libraries; design an improvement plan and a corresponding budget to meet the information needs of GIS; create policies that support the information needs of the school; train the library staff, teachers, students on how to use the library and its resources; develop a collection development plan and order materials that support the curriculum; develop and sustain a library skills curriculum to provide the research skills students need to achieve academic success for both the elementary and secondary students; to participate in management level meetings of the school; and engage in school and community outreach.
