Worldschool Teacher

Golden Oak Collective - Multiple Locations - Full time

Job Description

We are a fun, flexible, kind, open-minded, multinational family of five looking for an amazing educator to join us as we embark on a 6-month adventure in Asia, Australasia and the South Pacific! We are no strangers to alternative ways of educating our children. For the past two years we’ve homeschooled our three children with the help of an amazing teacher and a small group of other families. But sadly our current teacher is not in a position to travel with us so we are looking for a new educator to help develop our childrens’ academic skills and love of learning while we travel the world. Our children are 8, 6 and 4 and they are very motivated, curious, easy-to-manage learners. We are very hands-on parents that take a strong interest in our children’s education so we would welcome the opportunity to partner with and support you as you develop and implement your teaching plan. Our plan is flexible and evolving, but we envision that ‘school’ will be in the mornings and afternoons will be reserved for exploring as a family. So you, the educator, will usually be free to do your own thing in the afternoons and weekends. While your primary responsibility will be teaching, we will also ask you to help with some travel planning (e.g. researching kid-friendly activities in our chosen destinations) and we may ask you, from time-to-time, to do some evening babysitting (e.g. if we are heading out for dinner) . We will provide you with your own separate accommodation wherever possible. If you’re a diligent, creative and fun-loving teacher with a deep passion for education and a yearning for some adventure, we’d love to hear from you!
