Job Wanted: Bilingual Teacher


I am a recent graduate from California State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development. I am also a recent graduate from La Universidad Computense de Madrid, donde termine mi 4 anos de licenciatura en Filologia Espanola. Se que hay muchas faltas de ortografia pero mi ordenador portatil no me deja poner acentos, pues nada.

I am currently just looking for a summer position because I plan to finish my Master degree in Education in the Fall. After that, I will most likely be looking for a full-time position. A summer job in the Yucatan would be a great stepping stone for me.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Douglas Jeffcoat
