Teachers are responsible for the behavior of their school group and are expected to set clear expectations and take disciplinary actions if necessary.
ALWAYS STAY WITH YOUR GROUP
You are to accompany your group at all times: during excursions, meals, free time, etc.
Speak Spanish as much as possible! If your students see that you are always speaking Spanish they will be more likely to do the same.
FAMILY STAY RESPONSIBILITIES
While students are living with their host families, group leaders will be staying together in double rooms in a 3 or 4-star hotel in the zone of the homestay houses. During this week, there must be one group leader on call at all times in case of emergency. Each teacher will have the choice to either be in charge of only their school group or work with the other group leaders to take turns being on call for all students. While on call teachers are required to be available 24 hours a day in case of emergency. Teachers will be given a cell phone to use while on call and are expected to be 100% available to ensure safety.
