Office responsibilities include, but are not limited to interviewing prospective students, recommending texts, counseling students, completing progress reports, and greeting students in the lobby. 

All teachers need to maintain a professional attitude and appearance, show enthusiasm and creativity in all lessons, actively participate in all meetings, workshops and AEON-related campaigns, show flexibility, and a continued drive to improve.
