East Bay Agency for Children currently has an opportunity for a English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher to provide intensive ESL classes to adult English language learners. ESL classes for families are a key component in our services. It serves two important purposes:
- Position parents to improve employment potential and family literacy by increasing English language skills;
- Help parents become positive role models for their children by attending school and doing homework.
The program aims to provide a supportive environment for adult learners. Free childcare is provided for all classes. ESL works with other components of the Family Resource Center to meet family needs, to actively engage parents in their children education, and involve them in broader community issues.
Candidates should have the ability to work Mondays-Thursday nights from 8-10pm.
The ESL Class would run three days a week for two hours a session for 40 weeks (school year).
