Teachers are primarily responsible for teaching morning (and possibly early afternoon) classes and will also be expected to lead or assist with some afternoon and evening activities.  Courses should be fully planned prior to arrival, as there is very little free time built into the schedule for additional planning.  If possible, handouts should be prepared and copied in advance.  Teachers may also make copies on site during normal business hours.  We encourage highly interactive courses with much student participation.  Classrooms are also well equipped with technology such as computers, Internet access, and LCD projectors.  Teachers needing to schedule time in a computer laboratory should contact their director and the program coordinator. For student disciplinary issues, teachers should inform the director and log the incident (in English).   

In addition to their teaching responsibilities described here, lead teachers are responsible for coordinating the activities of the Mentors and may assist the director in any administrative duties.
