Teaching Abroad

“Teaching overseas is an incredibly exciting personal and professional journey. In overseas teaching, finding the right fit is everything. With this course, Jason and Launa bring their passion, experience, and expertise to the task of assisting others with the journey.”
– Dr. Andy Scott, Director of Program and Operations

Fit is about identifying schools, communities, and cultures that are compatible with who you are as an individual and a professional. It is also about finding a school that will provide exciting challenges, growth and rewards.
Recruiters are looking for teachers who understand fit and are a good match for their schools. Central to this course, is unpacking the idea of fit.
Understanding fit allows teachers to answer critical questions such as: If asked, would I be open to teaching any grade level within my certification? Will the ways I feel I contribute to a school community be valued? Am I ready for the day-to-day realities of living in a culture other than my own?
This course brings to light the personal, professional, practical and cultural realities of teaching and living overseas
