Job Description:
Special Education / Resource Teacher
Work with all levels of students, depending on need

Have you ever considered working with MKs in Kazakhstan?

My name is Tim Behnke; I am the recruiter for TSIS. We are located in Almaty, Kazakhstan, at the base of the Tien Shan Mountains. Our current enrollment is 200 students. Please pray and consider serving the Lord here at TSIS. Please know that TSIS is a non-salary school/institution all teachers and staff must come with full support and have a sending organization. Teachers and staff with children may attend TSIS at no cost when a parent is full time.

Our purpose is to meet the educational needs of our families enabling parent’s time to serve in Central Asia. TSIS is a member run school; recently members purchased a large parcel of land outside the city. We are praying for a December 2009 move to our new facilities, which will accommodate 250 students. We plan to remain at 250, it is important to us to give the very best to our students. TSIS strives to retain its high academic standards, not to be the largest school. We are proud that 95% of our graduates go on to universities.

Tien Shan International School is a non-profit NGO registered with the government as Tien Shan Education Center, a Christian institution. One of the school's chief goals is to offer low cost education to its member families. To do this, the school recruits teaching, administrative, and support staffs that are able to pay their own way, through their personal retirement fund, support groups, or the organization they belong. Though the school does not provide housing, pay travel costs, or offer salaries, it does provide in-country visa costs, transportation to and from school, small class sizes, daily lunch and continual staff in-service training. TSIS does offer an experience that will change your life and the lives of your students. Please visit our website at
