Help accomplish the translation task by teaching overseas
Wycliffe offers a wide variety of opportunities for teachers and school administrators, who are always in great demand!
School environments vary dramatically, ranging in size from just a single classroom to a school with over 700 students aged 5 -18. Some teachers serve on the staff of an international school used by a variety of different mission organisations. The curriculum of each school reflects the specific needs of its student body and will depend largely on the nationalities of the students.
Wycliffe also needs teachers who would like to support expatriate families who are homeschooling their children. This often involves regular travel to spend short periods of time working with parents to advise on schooling issues. These teachers have the rare opportunity to live in different village environments as they consult with Wycliffe parents who teach their own children. Preschool teachers and nursery workers may also be needed in some locations.
Katherine (right) shared some of her experience of homeschooling for 6 months in the far north of Cameroon:
'Having a tutor coming in is often a great help as it allows the parent to focus on one child at a time whilst not neglecting the others. Reports from previous parents day that haviing a tutor who can also help outside of school is a great help, particularly in family life, where they can take on tasks which otherwise would not get done and be around when help is needed.'

Teachers must have recognised teaching qualifications from their own country. They should also have the willingness and flexibility to teach students of other cultures and nationalities.
Teaching missionary children is both challenging and satisfying - and a vital part of accomplishing the Bible translation task.
