MoonEnglish, an established academy in a residential area of Cáceres, is currently hiring qualified EFL teachers for the 2019-20 academic year. We are looking for serious, dedicated teachers who want to grow professionally and form part of a fun and enthusiastic team.
Although all positions require teaching some variety of ages, each teacher is assigned age groups based on his or her personal experience and preference (some teachers only teach teenagers and adults, others focus on infants or primary, while others prefer to have a variety of ages).
Our young children’s classes follow a program designed around phonics, and older children and teens prepare for Cambridge exams (from Young Learners to CAE). The adult classes may be conversation, general English, or exam preparation. There are clear, specific objectives for every course and student progress towards these objectives is evaluated at the end of each term. The typical class size is 8-12 students.
Training is provided at the start of the course, with professional development sessions throughout the year.
Teachers have access to a wide variety of resources (text and reference books, multimedia material, flashcards, arts and crafts supplies, toys and games etc) as well as laptops, televisions and whiteboards in every classroom. Although we have a specific program and objectives in place, teachers are encouraged to contribute their own ideas and material. In this way, teachers have the freedom to develop lessons according to their unique teaching style and the individual needs of their students. Our staff room environment is collaborative and our teachers often look to each other for ideas and support.
