Volunteer Galapagos Teach

English TA – Education assistant    

Role Overview

Working as a TA in our local schools is a great opportunity as we work with the full range of formal education from children ages 3-5 in the preschool, to K1-K12 in elementary and high school. 
As a TA in the schools you will assist the classroom teachers but will also be responsible to come up with some of your own activities for class. Depending on the chosen age range, you will help the teacher with outside play time or feeding the children breakfast. In the higher years English lessons can also be incorporated with activities, games, songs, or projects.


Our schedules are based on 25 hrs/week. The normal schedule is Monday-Friday 7.00AM –12.00PM which may be subject to change depending on the tasks at hand. Preparation time would be in the afternoons.
