Requirements 

Teaching certification and Spanish proficiency

Supervision

Work responsibilities as a teacher: Damaris Lucano, principal (how often is to be determined, but a monthly zoom is suggested at first).

The recommendation is Tuesday and Thursday, 11 a.m.–12:00 p.m., via Zoom.

  2. Share written lesson plans with the English coordinator either weekly or monthly, depending on preference. 
  3. Maintain assessment data/grades on a spreadsheet that can be shared with the English coordinator to put on students' report cards (three times per year).
