FACULTY & STAFF

The Alliance Academy International (AAI) in Quito, Ecuador is a world renowned, international Christian school. AAI seeks to recruit and retain professionals who are passionate and committed equally to:

  • Maturing in their spiritual ministry,
  • Continually developing in their professional proficiency,
  • Fostering their community role,

All in the context of a Christian international school serving a highly-diverse constituency

Teachers at AAI preferably have a US-style education and either hold a valid teacher certification through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) or another recognized certification agency. Training and/or experience in the area of application is required. Job descriptions are available upon request. Preference may be given to those with two years of experience or more. We serve the international community, so proficiency in languages other than English is an asset, but not required.

Our desire is to employ those who are seeking to serve for a minimum of three years. Our ultimate desire is to have those join us who have a spiritual motivation to minister internationally in a Christian school setting. Biblical knowledge and spiritual maturity is required for all faculty members directly working with students.

We are currently a diverse faculty and staff community. Demographics range from recent college graduates to teachers with over 30 years of experience. All subjects are taught in English with the exception of Spanish language and literature, local history,  and other cultural requirements. We serve students in 3-year-old preschool up through 12th grade with a college preparatory program.

We have a faculty of special education teachers and English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) teachers who provide additional support for students as needed. Classroom aides are also provided as needed. Additionally, we have several educational therapists trained through the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD). Classroom aides are also provided as needed.

Faculty and staff members who come from the United States and who are not affiliated with any mission may choose to come as missionaries with Resourcing Christian Education International (www.rce-international.org) while those in Canada may choose to come under the Canadian division of Commission to Every Nation (cten.org).  Both US and Canadians may also choose to come with TeachBeyond (teachbeyond.org). Details regarding missionary appointment may be requested from Ellen Evans (eevans@alliance.k12.ec).
