    Description

    We are a British Family Living in Andalucia in Spain.We live in Yator, in the Alpujarra's under Granada.

    We have three lively adventurous children, Martha 12, Elsie 11 and Zebedee 7 and two kittens!
    We are spiritual, open, hard- working, seeking a special blend of people to join us here in this season of creativity. We are looking for support to run a teaching program for our three children now until January... or there abouts. We have resources, space, materials. We like them to learn anything that comes from a place of passion and enquiry. We are looking for people who are experienced with children, love to teach and inspire and live in community with others.

    The role is 25 hours a week max with plenty of flexibility and open conversation for ow the program runs.
    We ask you are able to manage the program of learning. We have a lot of resource material here. Loads of activities to explore and creativity to inspire. We need someone to lead on it and inspire the kids to think outside the box, develop passions and grow into able thinking humans! They have been raised to question life and ask the less asked questions, they are all very different. The ideal person would be someone who loves engaging and inspiring kids, has experience teaching/guiding/working with them and someone who really wants to get alongside them, not dictate but lead. The program can be designed any way… 1-1 for some subjects, all at once, a mix of many variables. There is also others in the community that can take on sessions. Actual teaching time would be up for discussion. There needs to be planning time, packing away and the 25 hours can be taken in big blocks with ore days off or a little each day or anything in between.

    Aside from this we ask that you prepare one meal a week for the household... (more if you choose and desire)

    Extra details:
    Drivers are helpful / Spanish speakers are really helpful / organised, mature, insightful adults are desired… / you must be an open person and able to communicate your needs, hopes, fears etc

    Experience is vital.. natural gifts and passions for the area of work really important.

    We live in a big property split into apartments. Your room is in an apartment at the top floor and set in a really peaceful small quiet village of Yator. The near town of Cadiar is five minute drive. Malaga is 2 hours / Granada 1 hour / we are deep in the Alpujarra’s and we are deep in nature. Orgiva – the hippy town where amazing activities and life happens, is 35 minutes. Covid – you don’t notice it here. You feel like you are really away from life. The coast and all its lively glory is 40-60 minutes away and we travel regularly to all these places for lifts, bus drops etc..

    If this might feel like the right place for you, We would ask to zoom or skype with you asap to talk more…
