Teachers for the 2020/21 School Year

Ayeyarwaddy International School

About the organization

Ayeyarwaddy International School opened in 2012/13 with approximately 400 students from preschool to Grade 8. We currently have over 1,100 students. For the next school year (2020/21), we will have approximately 1,200 students from preschool to Grade 12. We are fully accredited by WASC and members of EARCOS. We are a dynamic, fast-growing, and positive community. We have approximately 70 teachers (mostly from the US), and we have always had a number of RPCVs as part of our faculty. The teachers who do best here are the ones who devote themselves to their students, who commit to the mission of the school, and who go outside of the school to connect with the host culture. If you believe that you can contribute to our community and would like to learn more about Ayeyarwaddy International School, please contact me at [email protected] or visit our website at www.ais.edu.mm.
