Teachers: Teachers are primarily responsible for teaching morning (and possibly early afternoon) classes and will also be expected to lead or assist with afternoon and evening activities. Teachers can also expect to help with organizing some of these 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. Staff time off must be planned ahead, and equally distributed among staff members at the academy. All staff members are expected to participate in field trips and special events, unless the director has excused them from doing so.

For student disciplinary issues, teachers should inform the director and log the incident (in English). Academy staff members typically work together to discuss disciplinary actions. Care should be taken to ensure that similar rule enforcement and consequences for similar conduct and circumstances exist across all Academies held at a single host site.

Lead Teacher:

In addition to the teaching duties described below, lead teachers are responsible for helping to coordinate the responsibilities of the teachers outside of the classroom, as well as assisting the lead language mentor in coordinating the activities of the language mentors and assisting the director with administrative duties. The lead staff (director, lead teacher, and lead language mentor) will arrive one day prior to the remaining staff to set up the Academy office and continue planning. Staff time off must be planned ahead, and equally distributed among staff members at the academy.
