5.30.17 – Secondary School Librarian
American United School of Kuwait, Sabah Al Salem, Kuwait
Sarah P’ s comments: A late posting via TIE but also listed on their website. No reviews on ISR, one on Glassdoor which gave the school 2 stars, and the following short article on Teach Abroad which shared facilities and salary information. I wouldn’t worry about the qualifications in that they are requesting an education major. A master’s degree in library science is the qualification along with the school media certification. However, at this late date if you do not have the certification but can at least show you are working toward it, then I believe you will be accepted. The other acceptable route is to have an education certification with school media certification in addition with no MLIS.
(I personally don’t like this as how can anyone learn to be an effective librarian by taking only six classes? Who cares how wonderful your classes are if you can’t manage the database well enough to check out books? Just saying…)
The American United School for Pre-K through Grade 11 opened in September 2013. AUS offers small class sizes with the latest educational materials and interactive technology. The academic curriculum of the American United School is based on the Common Core American Standards Curriculum. These standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. The Common Core Standards focus on conceptual understandings and procedures starting in the early grades for reading, mathematics, science and social studies, enabling teachers to have the time needed to teach core concepts and procedures, and giving students the opportunity to master them. The school provides a 1:1 tablet program, with a high speed Wi-Fi network that allows educators and students to take advantage of this pedagogical change in the way that information is provided in a school setting.
