Join our international community of unlimited learners. We seek exceptional teachers from the United States, Brazil, and all over the world to join our faculty.

Our arms are open to welcome enthusiastic, motivational, and caring teachers, who wish to commit to educational excellence and who like to work in teams, in which decisions are shared.

We always ensure that our groups are small, because we believe that this is how we can guarantee a suitable environment for our children to receive the individual attention which they need for their personal and academic development. At all levels, students are encouraged to have autonomy, seek excellence, and find a purpose. They are also guided towards valuing research, investigation, and discovery.

To be a part of PASB’s team of teachers, it is important to be committed to the goal of helping children to find the best in themselves.

English is our first language, and it is used in all campus activities. Classes from the American curriculum are taught in English.
