Job: Secondary Librarian

9/25/15 –  Secondary Librarian
International School of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

Sarah P’s comments:  ISK has been known as a good, long-established school in an interesting region however has had some troubles in recent years due to increased unrest in the country as well as a reportedly difficult administration.  Apparently, things are now getting better in both areas however if you are interested in applying I would recommend reading the reviews on International School Reviews first.  FYI: The position is to begin the 2016-17 school year.

The Middle/High School (Secondary) Librarian shares responsibility for the daily operation and supervision of the library and implementation of all prog rams and services necessary to allow students and faculty to maximize use of the facility and its resources, particularly the middle/high school divisions. Performance will be evaluated annually by the High School or Middle School Principal and according to the ISK appraisal system, including the ISK Librarian Growth and Appraisal Rubric. The Middle/High School librarian may teach one section of the Scholarly Research and Writing Course and will support students and teachers in the Extended Essay. Additionally, the librarian will be expected to participate in a variety of collaborative teams and committees; fulfil supervision duties as assigned, including some evening and weekend events (as well as off-campus trips); possibly serve as advisor to a small group of students; and contribute to the co-curricular program.
