CANCUN JOBS: Here are two MORE job possibilities …
In the last article we talked about language schools and institutes. This article features Bi-lingual schools, Pre-Schools, Primary, Secondary and university-prep schools which heavily accent English in their programs and are earnestly seeking native-speaking English teachers for English and other classes. There are a considerable number of them due to the influence of tourism as the principal area industry. So, polish up your resume, apostil your diplomas and dive right in.

A kindergarten – primary school that features English, they are always looking for experienced, native-speaking teachers for staff positions.

Avenida Lopez Portillo No. 648 MZ, 14 S. M 60
(two blocks from the Camara de Comercio – Chamber of Commerce) Cancun
887 - 0404
Another school for very young students that strongly features English in its kindergarten – primary school programs and will take on experienced, native-speaking teachers. This is a mid-sized school with decent facilities allowing you to use multi-media and audio-visual resources as part of your teaching on a regular basis. A university degree in education or a related field, teaching credentials and some practical experience are qualifications sought, but a generous dose of enthusiasm (and some persistence) likewise go a long way towards landing a position.
