Employment Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in working with the English as a Second Language Department at Mt. San Antonio College.

Faculty Positions

We accept applications for hourly teaching positions year round.  Hours of assignment range from 3 to 22 per week, depending on our course type and program needs.  New instructors are paid according to a step-and-column rate relative to their educational qualification, always beginning at Step 1 and Column 1 ($49.58), per district agreement.  Although we are usually fully-staffed, we always welcome applications from qualified candidates and keep them on file for 6 - 12 months. 

Most of our instructors have a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL/TESL/TEFL). Some have a Bachelor's degree in English, Journalism, Linguistics, a foreign language, Intercultural Studies, or a related field PLUS a graduate-level certificate in TESOL.  

Employment Application

In addition to the application, the Department requires a resume, two letters of recommendation on company letterhead, and discipline related transcripts.  Copies of transcripts are accepted for application purposes; however, sealed official transcripts will be required upon employment. 

For questions about the application process or to submit your completed application, please contact Lorina Boon, ESL Administrative Specialist, at (909) 274-4815 or via email at
