Minerva School is a small bilingual (Spanish-English) school located in the center of the historical city of Gracias Lempira in Honduras. Gracias is a major tourist area of Honduras, having the tallest mountain in Honduras (Celaque), delicious Hot Springs, as well as being the root of the Lenca Civilization.
Minerva School has a total of 250 students, 15% of which are of limited resources and are sponsored by the school. The school has all grade levels from pre-school up to eleventh grade.
Our education at Minerva stands under three basic principles:
• 100% bilingual education
• Civic-cultural values
• Christian formation
If you are interested in experiencing teaching abroad, Minerva School gives you all the accommodations to do it. With English being the second learning language in this school, it is of great importance for these students to have native open-hearted North-American teachers teaching them this language which is so important to succeed in the global world in which we live today.
We are hiring teachers to start teaching January 2012. Teachers are required to be willing to teach in Gracias, Lempira for AT LEAST six months). Spanish is not necessary, and from others’ previous experiences, you can even end up learning it by interacting with the children and the community.
The benefits in coming to teach at Honduras are a monthly Honduran professor salary. Living accommodations are provided by the school. This can be a very interesting experience for you! You are going to love the uniqueness, historical background, and closeness to nature that Gracias, Lempira possesses.
