VERSO opens in August 2020.
We are looking for inspired educators
to join VERSO's founding faculty
VERSO represents the future of school. Opening in August 2020, VERSO is bringing
together a powerful team of progressive educators to design and deliver an innovative,
creative, never-been-done-before model of international education.
At VERSO we will inspire your creative confidence to lead, design and deliver a learning program that goes above and beyond the standard success metrics of other schools. We offer a vibrant professional learning environment and a collaborative culture that includes an innovative faculty co-working space.
VERSO is founded on THREE simple beliefs:
There is a demand for an international education rooted in a strong sense of personal and cultural identity.
Global citizenship means having the passion and ability to actively engage and contribute, both at a local and global level.
Tomorrow’s world demands the confidence and skills to lead your own journey, both in school and beyond.
As we prepare to welcome our first students in August 2020, we are building a dynamic and highly talented founding faculty of teachers.
At VERSO we recognize every teacher as a designer. You will be immersed in a culture of creative collaboration and design-thinking. You will work in multi-disciplinary teams where your talents, skills, and experiences will shape how learning is designed and pursued. VERSO is a school for passionate collaborators, who are driven by a common purpose to make learning exciting, engaging and deeply personal for every student.
Our hiring profile is simple. We are bringing together a team of talented international educators who exhibit the same mindsets we seek in our students.
Curious to Explore
Our teachers need to be brave, adventurous and inspired to make a difference. They need to be comfortable with the unknown and intrigued by our vision to build a school of the future where learning is deeply personalized for each student.
Inspired to Connect
We value the contribution of others. We work with the intention to collaborate, share and grow together. We actively seek ways to connect our teaching and learning with the world around us.
Driven to Contribute
Inspired by Nam Jai, which means reciprocity in Thai, we are intentionally building a school where humility, compassion, and kindness allow us to connect deeply with others.
Equipped to Transition
We know how to dig deep into a new setting with the skills and behaviors that enable us to connect and build positive, supportive communities wherever we go.
