Still I Rise is an international NGO with a humanitarian mission to provide protection and quality education to refugee and underprivileged youth. Our flagship institution is our International School in Mathare, Nairobi. Here, we are passionately engaged in one of the world’s most ambitious, unique and exciting educational projects: to offer the very highest quality of schooling experience to some of the most disadvantaged children in East Africa.

 

We are now seeking a Mathematics teacher to join our team. You will inspire and educate children in our introductory mathematics classes, as well as those following the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. You will also have the opportunity to complement those classes with a modest number of hours per week leading sessions in introductory ICT and Physical Education. Qualifications in those latter disciplines are not required, though you should demonstrate an interest in them.

 

Still I Rise invests heavily in its teachers. You join with a clear pathway of growth and promotion. We offer extensive professional development in a wide range of areas as well as full sponsorship of your participation in official IB training workshops.

 

We therefore hire educators who demonstrate genuine care for each child, a hunger to offer them the best, and an infectious passion for the curricular and extracurricular activities they lead.

 

If you are a qualified mathematics teacher and this sounds like a challenge which suits you, we warmly invite you to apply!

Plan, deliver and facilitate dynamic, active, and creative mathematics lessons for diverse classes of students aged 10-17. Create enhanced opportunities for real-life applications of concepts using available resources and project based learning.
