A GREAT PLACE TO TEACH
Our values-driven school - built on respect, tenacity, innovative, purpose and leadership - was developed from our trailblazing Head of School/CEO, Mr. Mark Lentz. His mentor inspired him to be active and hands-on with instruction and to instill learning and student engagement in the classroom.
Take a look at our video that demonstrates the impact of our lesson planning and teaching on our students.

WHY WORK AT GEMS AMERICAN ACADEMY QATAR?
“As of the 2022 – 2023 school year, I am in my fifth year of teaching music at GAAQ and I am continually inspired by the value our school community places on arts education. I love participating alongside our students in creative and playful cross-curricular lessons to refine the academic and social-emotional skills needed for the next generation of global citizens.”
"I've been teaching here for two years. I could not ask for a better school to teach at! I have enjoyed teaching the students as well as learning from them. As an educator, I believe everyday is a new opportunity to learn and my main goal is to prepare my students to be successful in the rest of their school years. I hope for all of my students to understand that life is learning."
JOSE IGNACIO ROMERO
"I've been teaching at GAAQ since the first day. The best way to describe our school is "Growth." We started as a small community back in 2014 and, nowadays, we count more than 1,200 students and 100+ educators. We have established ourselves as a premier school in Qatar and, as a father, I trust my kids studying at GAAQ are receiving the best education."
