Faculty & Staff
Teachers are the most important asset of any school and YIS is no exception. Our dedicated faculty and staff reflect the international nature of our community, representing 18 different nationalities, and have tremendous collective breadth and depth of experience in international education. Over half of our faculty hold advanced degrees and many others are currently working towards additional qualification. Above all, our teachers love working with children and helping them to grow and develop. We seek to inspire students and to provide them with the academic and social skills that will enable them to fulfill their potential as responsible global citizens.
As a school and faculty, we are committed to ongoing professional development. This includes taking advantage of our own wealth of pedagogical knowledge and experience through regular in-service training, as well as leadership and participation in workshops, conferences and other training opportunities hosted by international education organizations throughout Asia and beyond.
We are interested in excellent teachers who are passionate about education and are willing and able to contribute to the school and student life in a wide variety of ways. Please see our employment page for a list of vacancies.
Teachers as Learners
Everyone is a learner at YIS. As such, our professional development program is designed to support the learning of our faculty and staff, but, first and foremost, it aims to impact student learning. PD takes many forms here. There are formal events and activities, such as IB workshops, outside consultants visiting, scheduled PD days and and strategic meetings and committees. The learning can also be informal and inquiry based, responsive to the needs of the learners and the strengths of our teaching community. Most importantly, professional development seeks to empower teachers in their learning journey.
