The ideal candidate will have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree, and be either a native speaker or someone who has lived in a Spanish speaking country.

Students and teachers are all required to wear masks. Our goal is to remain on-campus as much as the year as possible. If in the event that we do need to start distance learning, the Spanish teacher must be able to also teach online. This requires knowledge of Google Classroom and giving audio and video demonstration lessons.
