The J-1 Teacher Program is a great way to add diversity to your school, incorporate unique teaching perspectives, and increase the global awareness of your students while filling high-demand teaching positions at your school with qualified international teachers.
Teachers in the program may teach at your school as a lead teacher of record for an initial period of up to 3 years. During this time, they will complete a yearly cross-cultural presentation and connect students in your school to students in the teacher’s home country via a virtual connection project. At the end of this 3 year period, should the school wish to have more time with the teacher, an extension of 1 or 2 years is possible. Exchange teachers are paid by your school, or school district, a salary that is commensurate with a similarly situated domestic teacher, having a similar teaching position and level of experience.
