Colegio Americano del Sur is a bilingual NEASC accredited school located in Santa Lucia, Cozumaguapa, Guatemala. We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2020.

We are looking for a professional who has the skills to take on our Enrichment Specialist position. This position begins on January 6th, 2020 and ends on November 6th, 2020. (Our school year runs from January thru November)

Our learning environment includes a fresh and open campus, surrounded with beautiful trees and flowers. Students have the advantage of nature and the outdoors at their classroom doorsteps! (Classes are frequently held outdoors.)

We have embarked on integrating technology within the academic classes and strive to improve in this area. Tech support is school-wide and you can improve on your tech skills by being mentored by one of our tech specialists any time there is a need. We have a 3-D printer which helps to enhance our teaching strategies. The tech team also manages our fully equipped radio station that functions as a school-wide media outlet. 

We are very committed to community outreach and are involved with community public schools to provide academic support. Our 11th grade students provide a weekly English class for these schools which enable both groups of students to learn from each other. One of the community schools is located right next to their community garbage dump.

Two years ago we started a Book Mobile program where we visit six different schools throughout the school year and share library books with the classes as well as provide mini lessons which are lead by our students.

The qualifications for the Enrichment Specialist position are the following:

  • a minimum of 4 years classroom experience and proven skills in leadership, group facilitation, organization, writing, listening and communication.
  • ability to work independently.
  • excellent communication skills.
  • a passion for student achievement, the conviction that all students will learn, and a high drive to meet the needs of every student.
  • an intimate understanding of U.S. education.
  • be a strong advocate for students and teachers.
  • coach and collaborate with classroom teachers to improve the differentiation of curriculum and instruction for diverse ability learners.
  • current in educational research through on-line research and literature.
  • assist in revising current, curriculum to ensure both articulation and provisions for accountability.
  • develop and administer a school-wide staff development program which will provide skills and strategies to support effective classroom instruction.
  • support the use of a comprehensive assessment system to inform instruction and enrichment opportunities for students.
  • interpret test results and use data in curriculum development as well as in planning professional development.
  • visits to classrooms regularly making informal observations.
  • encourage teachers to think outside of the box when planning their lessons. Co-plan lessons and units incorporating differentiation strategies and complex reasoning skills with teachers in order to meet needs of the learners.
  • teach the 12th English Language class
  • flexibility to take on responsibilities that are not included in actual job description when necessary

If you have any interest in teaching abroad please contact us. I am absolutely sure that you would be very fulfilled and enriched both professionally and personally after having taught in our learning environment.
