Job: Librarian (School)

2.9.16 –  Librarian (School)
Kwajalein School System, Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands

Sarah P’s comments:  If you want a laid-back, out-of-the-way experience in a small, well-established school, this is the place to go.  It’s a military base so you are teaching American students and it’d small but, having lived in the Marshalls, I can tell you it doesn’t get better than this.  Traditionally, this school has always recruited via the Iowa Fair but now they have a direct link for applying.  They do not say but I believe this is a K-12 position.
