Our website (link below).
Duties: Coordinators are expected to work Monday to Friday, from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, and be available after those hours depending on activities and responsibilities. Coordinators are in charge of a team of teachers, implementing with them all of the school academic and discipline programs, supervising all of the teachers work, training and supporting them. Their work also includes following up on students and parents academic and discipline needs, and reporting all to the school Principal. Coordinators, together with the Principal, are the pillars of the school operation, and their role in our school will be very focused to implementing with the Principal a new Balanced Literacy, Math, Science and ESL programs (ESL Coordinator only the ESL program and the Spanish Coordinator the others).
Contract Period: Scholastic year contracts: August 2018 - June 2019 (immediate renewal of contract for more years desired)
Transportation: Transportation to the city of Hermosillo is at the Coordinators expense. Hermosillo has an international airport with flights to the U.S., and the city is a three-hour drive from the Arizona, USA border on a modern four-lane divided highway (foreign cars do not need special permit). Another (and maybe more affordable) option is to fly into Tucson or Phoenix, AZ and then take a bus into Hermosillo.
Location: Hermosillo is the capital of Sonora state, with about 800,000 inhabitants very close to the Gulf of California, and backed by the Sonoran desert. A few miles from Hermosillo are the beautiful seaside resorts of San Carlos and Kino Bay, both with great recreational activities such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and water sports.
Many Americans and Canadians own homes in this area due to its proximity to the border and its beauty. Because of its southerly latitude (mid-Florida), summers are hot and winters are mild and sunny. Hermosillo holds several cultural events during the year and is host to a AAA professional baseball team, as well as soccer and basketball teams.
Salary and Benefits
Salary: Salary will be paid in pesos. The monthly salary will be $44,000 pesos cash.
Renewal: A bonus of $38,000 pesos is given upon completion of contract. Each annual contract is subject to renewal with increase in salary, dependent upon successful completion of the contract, quality of performance, positive evaluations, and mutual consent of the coordinator and the administration of Colegio San Jose. Coordinators with a multi-year commitment to Mexico and the institution are encouraged to apply.
Vacation Leave: Two major holiday periods occur during the school year--- Christmas vacation and Spring Break---each of which is approximately two to three weeks, plus various other Mexican holidays. These are paid holidays. They cannot accrue as cash and must be taken during the scheduled holiday dates.
Sick Leave: Colegio San Jose will provide 3 days of paid sick leave. After the expiration of these 3 days, coordinators who find themselves in a position of needing more leave, upon presentation of proof, will be granted leave with a deduction in pay at the daily rate. The school provides Mexican major medical insurance for the duration of contract.
Top notch Medical facilities are available in Hermosillo.
Housing: Colegio San Jose does not have faculty housing available. However, the institution will assist in finding suitable housing. We suggest that coordinators arrive, at latest, 3 days before start of contract for the purposes of getting settled. We will provide host housing for three days, during which time coordinators can look for an apartment, with our help. After the three day period has expired, we respectfully request that coordinators who have not yet found housing, relocate at their own expense (3 days is usually enough time). It is estimated that a one- or two-bedroom furnished apartment can be rented for between $3000 - $3500 pesos per month, depending on the location.
Visa, Mexican: Colegio San Jose will facilitate application for the visa to work in Mexico and reimburse all visa fees at end of contract.
