Colegio Aleman is seeking full time English teachers for Primary school to start immediately. Students in elementary school receive classes in Spelling and Vocabulary, Social Studies, Science, Grammar, Reading Comprehension, Writing and Math, which are all taught in English. Students learn half the day in Spanish and half the day in English.
All teachers contracts run from approximately August 13 to June 30. Working hours for teachers are from 7:45 am – 2:30 pm Monday to Friday. Teachers are responsible for two hours of tutoring after class each week, and to help out at special events, that can sometimes occur outside of regular school hours (ex. Christmas Festival). Recess yard duty is also the responsibility of the teachers, on a rotating basis with the Spanish Department. This occurs every other week. We have two weeks of holidays at Christmas and Easter, plus several other Mexican holidays throughout the year.

Teacher’s monthly base salary, as mentioned earlier is $9,039.68 Mexican pesos, after the deduction of taxes. This will be divided in half and paid every 15 days.
The ideal teacher should be energetic, innovative, articulate, flexible, committed, conscientious, adaptable, organized, honest, professional, caring, patient and competent.
