Call 152-8003, Pat Frey to volunteer to teach or sub at The San Miguel School of English for the Fall semester. Our students are 16-years-old and up. We would love to have experienced teachers; however, no prior teaching experience is required. We use a textbook series that removes the burden of detailed lesson plans. Classes meet Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 6-7:30, September 1 to December 11 and January 7 to mid-April.  Usually, two teachers share the class, each teaching one or two nights a week.
