Calling All Teachers!

A family serving in cross cultural mission often faces hard choices when their eldest child approaches the end of their primary school education. How do they provide a secondary education for their children when the local options won’t adequately equip them to qualify for tertiary education in Australia? One way to assist such families is for teachers from Australia to go to the field and serve these families by teaching in a mission run school. This enables the families to remain on the field and be even more effective.

In 2018-2019 (i.e. now) Bingham Academy, an SIM associated school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia needs two English teachers, a teacher for French and a teacher for Geography.

But these needs exist beyond Ethiopia. Schools associated with SIM alone (by no means the only evangelical mission schools) are currently praying for:

19 Upper Elementary teachers, 25 Lower Elementary teachers

5 school directors, 24 administrators and support staff

19 Music teachers, 15 Art teachers, 25 Information Technology teachers

55 English Second Language teachers, 18 Special Education teachers

15 Maths teachers, 24 Science teachers, 13 Bible and RE teachers

20 English teachers, 13 Language teachers (mainly for French)

20 Social Science teachers, 26 Physical Education teachers

And that is by no means all!

Perhaps God is leading you to fill some of these needs. If you’d like to know more then please get in touch with the APWM office –
