HS IB Economics (prior experience preferred) / History Teacher

The primary function of an International School of Panama teacher is to facilitate the students learning process and create a productive environment in which students can develop skills they might need at present or in the future.

The teacher should provide within the classroom, learning opportunities for the students, and assist in other school programs, working harmoniously with the administrative staff and parents in support of the ISP Teaching Philosophy, school policies, regulations, objectives and goals.

High School at ISP :

We are a community of approximately 360 high school students (grades 9, 10, 11, and 12), sixty-plus faculty and staff members, and several hundred parents.

Though a rigorous and engaging academic program sits at the core of the ISP high school experience the arts, athletics, and service are also central to our program.

The foundation that all of this is built upon is a shared belief that the most important thing that we do on this campus is take care of one another.

We are very proud of the work, the learning, and the teaching we do together and also quite humbled by the caliber of people we get to do it all with (on such a beautiful campus).

We are all learning, growing, contributing, and finding (and fine-tuning) our passions in life, including students, faculty, and parents / families.

The High School Faculty :

Our high school faculty is a mix of ISP founders and veterans who’ve been dedicated to ISP for 20 years, 25 years, or longer along with many teachers who are relatively new to the school and bring experiences with them from all over the world.

Our teaching staff is from the US, Canada, the UK / Europe, Panama, and other parts of Latin America. The mix of local hires and international teachers is 50 / 50 within the high school.
