Seeking Teacher Who Likes Garlic

The town of Gilroy, California is searching for a new international relations coordinator of its 15-year-old exchange program with Takkomachi (pop. 7,200) in the southeast of Aomori prefecture. The duties of current coordinator, John Barbara, have included organizing dozens of exchanges by students, business and community leaders between the twin "garlic towns" and teaching English conversation at five schools in the area. Applicants must have a 4-year degree and - here's the catch - be residents of Gilroy or a neighboring town. The job includes a free ski/snow boarding pass to nearby slopes, a "healthy salary and full health benefits," a rent-free, furnished apartment and the majority of travel expenses. For more details, contact John Barbara or see here.
