Welcome from The Principal
Meridian International School is one of the leading international schools in Ukraine, and with a reputation for excellence. The school is an exciting place to develop professionally in an international context and offers opportunities for teachers at a variety of stages in their career. Successful teachers at MIS, however, usually have a number of things in common. They are enthusiastic and flexible, and have been willing to rise to the challenge of adapting both culturally and socially to a new environment. While motivated by a desire to broaden personal horizons, they have decided to apply to MIS as a conscious professional choice to become part of a leading, innovative educational community. Most importantly, they are inspired by the whole idea of learning and teaching, and operate best as part of a collaborative team. They are comfortable with the idea of working in an independent, fee-paying school, with parents who take a strong interest in their children’s education and who are used to regular access to the professionals responsible for it.
Teaching at MIS is as demanding as it is rewarding. You have to be prepared to go the extra mile: hours are long and commitment is taken for granted. However, with the school’s collegial environment, the opportunity provided for professional development, an excellently resourced campus and students who are full of enthusiasm, MIS has become a place where many teachers have spent a significant portion of their teaching careers.
Please also take the time to read carefully the comments made by our staff. We prefer, where possible to interview face to face, for those applicants already in the region. Where this is not possible we conduct interviews by Skype or telephone.
I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you as we undertake recruitment for staff to join us in the next academic year.
With best wishes,
