English Teachers Needed in Cuenca, Ecuador
CEDEI School is a part of the CEDEI non-profit foundation. We are a non-traditional, dual language, content-based preschool to early high school. Our school is guided by the following philosophical tenets:
· Multiple Intelligences
· English as an instrumental language
· French as a third language
· Inclusion of children with special needs
· Emotional stability as a prerequisite to learning
· Music, movement, and art as expressions of self
· Development of critical thinking skills
Seeking teachers with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree plus TEFL with preference given to those with a teaching degree.
We are located in Cuenca, a beautiful colonial city, large and modern enough to meet all your needs but still compact enough to retain a quaint, small city feeling. Cuenca is a walking city, and teachers can obtain all their needs within the city center. Teachers can enjoy a variety of parks, green spaces, free cultural events such as a symphony and art expositions, and the national park and ruins located a short distance from the city. Ecuador is small enough to allow one to travel throughout the three main regions: beach, mountains, and rainforest during breaks and on weekends. The climate is ideal with spring-like temperatures throughout the year. In recent years Cuenca has become a hot spot for foreigners looking to relocate.
