Teachers Needed

Are you a teacher? Are you interested in missions? Do you know a teacher who is? Please read on.... As the academy on board look to the next school year, they are in need of teachers. Is God calling you, or is there somebody else you know who needs to know that God is calling them HA! Check out this advert from our Academy: Greetings from the Mercy Ships International Operations Center. The Mercy Ships Academy is a unique K-12 school located on the hospital ship – Africa Mercy. The Academy has provided a quality education for the children of our international volunteer staff since 1978. Our school uses a standards-based curriculum in order to meet the needs of our international student body. In 2011, the Africa Mercy will be docked in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and The Mercy Ships Academy is looking for volunteers to apply for the following positions: Physical Education Science Social Studies (new) Kindergarten 1st Grade 3rd Grade 4th and 5th Grade This is a unique opportunity to serve onboard our state-of-the-art hospital ship. To see a list of requirements as well as other resources for teachers, visit the Ship School on the Web. Teachers have one of the most critical and challenging jobs in the world – educating young minds and laying the groundwork for children to become adults. In a spin on a traditional teaching job, Ben Calvert decided to take his teaching career to the high seas. Read Ben's story. Consider joining our teaching team in this unique ship-based setting in Africa. Your life will be changed as you serve the children of the Africa Mercy crew!
