Job Description

Thamardi, Meiktila, Myanmar

Welcome to central Myanmar. Meiktila, a small bustling city, sits at the crossroads of many major tourist destinations. You will find plenty to do to occupy your time in this clean yet active city. Whether it’s sitting at a riverside restaurant sipping a beer, going for a round of golf at the local course, or enjoying hikes in nearby villages we promise you will find a small corner of Myanmar to relax and immerse yourself in local culture. If you want a western lifestyle, then it is not ideal for you. We are located on the outskirts of Meiktila, where there are restaurants, coffee cafes, and local villages. This area offers more of a culture experience allowing you to connect with the locals and the other foreigners that work on the base.

A small family run school, Thamardi boasts enthusiastic and well behaved students, traditional Myanmar lunches supplied daily at school. We are looking for a teacher, with some teaching experience and a passion for teaching and living abroad.
