TIME AND SCHEDULE
Our school year lasts from late august to the end of June. We have two weeks off for Christmas, as well as two more for Easter, and about five days off due to Mexican holidays. The schedule for our teachers is from 7:40 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. from Monday to Friday. All teachers also come 2 to 3 hours in the evening per week for tutoring and remedial programs. We also have teachers’ meetings in the evening once a week.
REQUIREMENTS FOR TEACHERS
This kind of opportunity is for native English speaking people, with a strong desire to learn Spanish, who hold a degree either in Education, Psychology, Sociology or any other humanistic approach. We believe that experience is useful but not indispensable, and of course Spanish is not required. Even though, Colegio Inglés is a catholic institution, teachers do not have to be catholic to work in this school.
SALARY
Teachers get a monthly salary which is for personal expenses and food. The school provides a nice home which is shared with teachers with no dependants. Teachers with dependants will have to rent a house at their own expense. All school houses are not co-ed. You can take for granted that the salaries are enough to cover comfortably your personal needs while you live in México, and it allows you to save at least 30% to 45 % of your salary at the end of the contract if you fulfilled it satisfactorily.
THE CITY
Torreón is a modern industrial city located in the north of México in the state of Coahuila, just south of Texas. Our population is over 900,000. We have dry weather and very little rain. We could say that there are just two seasons here: summer and some days of mild winter. The sun shines almost the whole year. Our temperatures range from 25ºC to 40ºC in the summer and from 15ºC to -3ºC in the winter.
Not many believe us when we advise to bring warm clothes for our colder winter days, so make sure to bring warm clothes for our colder winter days, so make sure to pack some!
