Certified, Foreign Teachers for the 2014-15 School Year

Footprints School is a school dedicated to raising the quality of education in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Established in 2007, the school has grown from just 10 students to over 480 students and has spread across 4 campuses, with students from Nursery to Primary Grade 7. We provide a dual curriculum, allowing students to develop competence in Khmer and English, which covers a core curriculum focused around the 4 disciplines of math, language arts, science and social studies. Computers, music, art, swimming and PE are incorporated throughout our program of learning to achieve a more integrated approach to education. Footprints School is licensed with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and is currently a candidate school for international accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Starting from September 2014, Footprints will be accepting accepts students from Nursery-Grade 8.

As a school, Footprints is quite compact, which means that teachers need to work together and interact with each other often throughout the day. This helps forms friendships and relationships among the teachers, and many choose to do combined sporting or reading activities with other classes to complement their classroom lessons.

Footprints is also an extremely cross-cultural environment. While the majority of students are Khmer, we do have students from other nationalities attending, and this creates opportunities for learning not only in the classroom, but also on a personal level. Working at Footprints provides an amazing opportunity for teachers to learn more about themselves and to gain a greater understanding of the concept of “culture”.

Overall, Footprints is a fun, flexible teaching environment, where teachers are encouraged to bring themselves to their classroom, and to return back to the heart of the teaching profession. It is a school which cares about its students on an individual level, and its teachers on a personal level.

Positions are open until filled and start September 1, 2014. We are hiring in all areas (nursery, preschool, kindergarten, primary and secondary).
