Internships

Title: Classroom Teacher Intern

Mission Statement
Word Made Flesh Thailand’s mission is to respond to the poor, marginalized and displaced people of Thailand through holistic, educational, therapeutic and creative projects to address their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Internship Summary
In April 2013, we launched our homeschool pilot project by paying a stipend for three students to leave the work in the street and enter our school as full time students. Since then we have added one additional student, bringing enrollment to six students including our own two daughters. Our classroom is a creative version of a one-room schoolhouse since our students range in age from 5 to 14 years. Incorporating principles from Montessori as well as the traditional classroom, we focus on one-on-one attention and give students the freedom to choose what they learn and how. Our goal is to recognize the unique value of each of our students and help them blossom into who they were created to be.

We have experienced huge success in our teaching methods as we have seen our students reading and writing in Thai within months and discovering their individual interests and passions. In order for us to continue in this and add students, we need more teachers. We are looking for a college graduate with an education degree looking to develop their teaching skills in a unique, innovative pilot program. The teaching intern will assist current teachers in creating teaching materials, teaching English, and building relationships with our students.
