Job: Elementary Librarin

3.29.17 –  Elementary Librarian & Reading Coach
American School of Bangkok Thailand

4.4.17 UPDATE: This listing has been removed from TIE. Apparently, this position was offered to someone who signed and returned the contract and then a few days later received an e-mail that they were not going to employ the person after all. The position then appeared on TIE.  While I do not know why this occurred, this action does not reflect well on the school or the administration, no matter what the reason.

Sarah P’s comments:  This position appeared on TIE (The International Educator) on 3/20 but so far has not been listed on the School Employment page. If interested, check out the listing on TIE, read the reviews on International School Reviews which indicate slow improvement overall, and contact the school directly to inquire.  Traditionally, Thailand has been a great place to live but in recent years the cost of living has risen substantially.  Also, because this is listing a a partial Reading Coach position, they might also be requiring certification in that area.
