RIS teachers and administrators are dedicated educators who provide a top-quality education and are committed to the moral purpose of our school: to foster character development in students of all faiths and help them to realize their highest potential. By providing a positive learning environment, our faculty members guide children to become ethical, principled individuals. Teachers and administrators are valued stakeholders who consistently contribute their time, energy, and talent to foster the vision and core beliefs of the school community, to the benefit of the entire school. 

RIS teachers and faculty are expected to be

  • collaborative team members
  • knowledgeable and up-to-date in their content area/field of expertise
  • technologically literate
  • competent in using a variety of strategies to meet curricular outcomes
  • demonstrate strategies that accommodate different learning styles and abilities

Candidates for teaching positions at RIS are expected to have at least a bachelor’s degree, current in-field certification, and at least two years of experience in a K–12 school preferred. New teachers recruited at overseas job fairs are asked to sign an initial 2-year contract, which can be extended thereafter on a yearly basis. One-year or single-semester contracts may be offered when hiring locally or for short-term replacements. All contracts are reviewed when the term of employment ends.

Professional Development & Research

The primary goal of professional growth at RIS is to strengthen Student Learning Outcomes, also known as the Principles of Phoenix—Head (Knowledge), Hands (Skills), and Heart (Values)–. RIS staff members take pride in staying current in their skills and knowledge. As such, RIS actively promotes and supports the professional growth of faculty who continually strive to improve their performance and work to achieve school-wide, divisional, and personal goals.

RIS supplies both annual and monthly funds for every teacher to pursue professional growth experiences to enhance teaching and learning at RIS. On-site workshops, seminars, and courses are hosted regularly as part of a professional culture of collaborative sharing and support. RIS teachers take part in national, regional, and international conferences. They travel to NESA, EARCOS, and other world-renowned conferences and workshops to learn about how to implement current best practices such as an inquiry approach to problem-based learning, visible thinking strategies, and the development of Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) centered on the needs of each learner.

The latest research plays a vital role in informing RIS teaching practices and can contribute greatly to improving approaches to learning. RIS uses internal and external sources of data to research and support initiatives and practices, including collecting evidence to monitor the development of RIS students, classes, grade levels, and other sections. External research, educational literature, and visits from experts also help inform teaching practices and support innovation and initiatives.
