Meet the Staff

The International School has over 25 full-time and part-time teachers and staff members. Because the English staff are volunteer missionaries the school is able to employ more Brazilian staff members. The school recruits teaching professionals from the nearby churches first.

The volunteer staff for the English department changes from year to year based on the volunteers who come down, but there are some permanent staff English department members.
