Teach at Robert’s American School
Robert’s is always interested in meeting current or aspiring teachers who want to make a
difference in education. We take very seriously our role and responsibility in shaping the minds and

succeed. In addition to enjoying the culture and excitement of living in Taiwan, successful teachers
build strong and respectful relationships with their colleagues and bring a willingness to motivate
students and while nurturing their own instruction skills.
