Are you a teacher looking for a new and exciting job opportunity? Well, Guantanamo Bay is hiring.

According to a new posting on, the Department of Defense is now hiring teachers to teach the kids of military officers in the famed detention facility.

The DoD is looking for “qualified” candidates that possess “a baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by a regional accrediting association.” You will also have to meet Selective Service requirements. If you meet those qualifications, you can earn between $50.50 and $101.00 as a “substitute teacher.” According to the posting, they have “many vacancies” that need filling.

The description of the job sounds fun, asking “Do you want to work for an exciting educational organization, with the children of our dedicated U.S. military members?” Of course you do.

The posting also describes the duties of the job, stating “The substitute teacher plans, organizes, and presents information and instruction which helps students learn subject matter and skills that will contribute to their educational and social development.”

If all of this sounds like a dream job, the application closes on July 9th. Good luck!
