Job: K-12 Librarian

5/4/15 –  K-12 Librarian
Surabaya International School, Indonesia

Sarah P’s comments:  This is a small established school.  Reviews are mixed with the trend being you either really like the admin (and are liked by them) or don’t.  I once interviewed for a position at this school and to be honest, the director sounded intelligent when discussing tech issues but I would make sure you are a member of the tech team so you are not shuffled into a corner.  The pics of the school show a decent media center.  If you are seeking a foot in the door of the international school world, check it out, however make sure to ask why this late posting.  (Most positions are filled  this late in the recruiting season. For more info read Chapter 3 of my book and/or visit my Book Resources page.

FYI:  This position was posted on TIE (The International educator) however you can apply direct via the school employment page (though the position is not listed there.)

Housing; visa assistance; moving in allowance; shipping; international health insurance, wellness benefits; retirement benefit, tax free salary, staff development opportunities, and more.
