Job Description

Artist Georgia O'Keeffe once said, “I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way - things I had no words for.” 

How would you like to give kids the tools to creatively express themselves while impacting the world for eternity? 

As a supported* art teacher, you would teach Art to K-12 students to enhance their creativity and ability to understand and appreciate all forms of art. This will enrich students' lives as their parents work in Bible translation. 

Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Every day is worthwhile! You would help students understand and appreciate various art forms, such as ceramics, portraits, oil and watercolors. You would also prepare, administer, correct assessments, maintain records and grades, and provide guidance in choosing elective subjects. You may even teach a second or third subject, such as Music and Literature.
