Join the team

of UAS Educators

When you join the Uruguayan American School faculty, you become part of a diverse team of professional educators united in their commitment to students and to continuously improving their teaching craft. UAS teachers work in a dynamic and collaborative atmosphere.  They engage with students as learners and as people, nurturing them to reach their potential. Supportive colleagues and enthusiastic students make UAS a personally and professionally fulfilling place to teach.

UAS is located in a residential suburb of Uruguay’s capital city Montevideo.  The city has over 1 million habitants, but its distinct neighborhoods and tree-lined streets give it a “small city feel.”  Most teachers live less than 10 minutes by car to the Rio de la Plata, many live within blocks of it. On weekends, The Rambla–a 30-kilometer promenade running along the river–is typically filled with runners, walkers, bikers, and sunset watchers. Besides Montevideo, the beaches of Punta del Este and the UNESCO world heritage site Colonia de Sacramento make for enjoyable day trips or weekend getaways. Overall, Uruguay offers a wonderful quality of life for families and active people.

UAS offers a comprehensive and competitive salary and benefits package, which includes support for teachers’ professional development.

If you are interested in joining our team, please send a cover letter specific to the position you seek, a resume (no more than 2 pages), and a list of 3 references with e-mail addresses. Send materials by email to:
