At PCI we recognize that quality educators have been and will continue to be vital in PCI's success and, more importantly, in the success of its students. It takes an adventurous, passionate, and motivated teacher to relocate to a foreign country and culture, but in spite of this, or maybe because of it, we have great teachers who devote themselves to helping the students of the greater Lake Atitlan area whole-heartedly. PCI works to orient new teachers to the local culture and to help them find affordable living situations.

While a teaching certificate is not a requirement to teach at PCI at the moment, we do favor candidates who do have one or have previous teaching experience. Moreover, because PCI is a small school, we expect teachers to fulfill other valuable roles necessary to foster an excellent learning environment in addition to being prepared to teach class each day.

The hiring process begins in March. The school year starts in September and ends in June.

Why Teach at PCI?

Here is what a few of our teachers have to say about why they came to Guatemala to teach at Panajachel Colegio Internacional, and why they love it!

"I love living here in Panajachel and teaching at PCI. The students, faculty, and staff at PCI are hard working, intelligent, and very positive. They make me feel right at home. I have been particularly proud to be able to teach Robotics, AP Calculus, and AP Physics here." - Daniel Radin

"There is a true feeling of family that is fostered in PCI and that extends out to the community" - Alex Eschenbach
