If you are interested in a teaching position at an ASI member school ASI recommends the following: 


Being an Ambleside Teacher

An Ambleside teacher is passionate about nourishing  and nurturing the lives of students. The teacher shares in a vision for who each student is becoming and with this in mind works diligently to bring out the best in each student, as well as  provides support in areas of weakness.

An Ambleside teacher develops and grows as a learner. A myriad of studies are before him: composers and artists, handwork and writing, history and literature, observing and experimenting in science, and connecting in mathematics. The teacher faces these subjects with attention and delight. The truths unfold, and he grows in wisdom and skill.

In the daily work, one approaches learning through a lens of a method, not a hard fast system. The method takes on a rhythm, a way of approaching the learning. The work of Spirit and mind interact to unfold the mysteries of knowledge to those who attend.

An Ambleside teacher leads her students through the ups and downs of everyday life, working together for a common end, growth. “We learn in order to grow.”

Description of an Ambleside Educator:

Ambleside teachers have an active, personal faith in Jesus Christ along with a desire to live out their faith and disciple others in the classroom.  They love books: classic stories, fairy tales, myths and legends, history, science, math, anything well-written with good ideas.  They love nature, art, music, and many other subjects and desire to introduce these things to their students.  They are lifelong learners.
