Escuela Campo Alegre (ECA)
ECA is a private non-profit English language private school with a program designed primarily to serve the needs of children ages 3-18, from international corporations and diplomatic agencies temporarily residing in Caracas. The school was established in 1937 to provide a North American International education in Venezuela. Throughout its history, the school has provided innovative education, which focuses on individual students needs. ECA currently hosts students from over 40 nations.
I work at the Superintent's office acting as a liaison/translator between the Superintendent and the school community., including the Board of Directors. One of my main responsibilities is to translate in-going and outgoing emails and correspondence. I'm accountable for maintaining records of overseas teachers in the school's database, prepare reports and different sets of documents for the Board meetings, update the Superintendent's agenda and register him for the recruitment fairs and conferences throughout the school year. Organize social events (invitations, catering, etc.) I also coordinate the teachers' attendance to conferences, including air tickets and hotel reservations. Another responsibility that has recently been added to my job spec is to participate in the recruiting process of administrative personnel for the company. I'm in charge of posting the position on the websites, making initial contact and interviews with potential candidates, and follow up on the process until the best candidate has been hired. After work hours, I teach English to the maintenance staff at the school and participate in school-sponsored events.
Prior to this position, I was an administrative assistant at the elementary office.
I report directly to the Superintendent and to the Director of Support Services.
