If you are a teacher looking for a job with a difference, you may want to check out a new posting on federalgovernmentjobs.us — but only if you are willing to work at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.
“Do you want to work for an exciting educational organization, with the children of our dedicated U.S. military members?” asks the Department of Defense, in a Wednesday job posting first reported by Gawker. If the answer for you is yes, you may apply for a substitute teacher position; they are looking to fill “many vacancies” at Guantánamo for a salary of $50.50 to $101 per day.
Your duties would include planning and organizing lessons for the children of U.S. military personnel and generally contributing to their intellectual and social development. In addition to the willingness to work near a controversial detention facility where prisoners have been subject to controversial interrogation techniques, you must have U.S. citizenship to apply.
