Primary education

Guide a group of students for the entire school day. Elementary (primary) school in the USA is kindergarten through fifth grade (ages 5-11).

You will teach all core subjects, including math, science, social studies, and language arts. All subjects are taught in English. Usually, these teachers work in similar positions in their home countries.

We also offer very limited positions in music and physical education at the elementary level.

Dual language (bilingual primary)

As with elementary school teachers, dual language teachers lead classes in all core subjects. However, teachers in dual language programs teach in Spanish or Mandarin.

Teaching follows one of two models:

  • Full immersion: 90% of instruction in Spanish or Mandarin
  • 50/50: Instruction split between English and either Spanish or Mandarin

World languages (Spanish, French, and Mandarin)

Native speakers of Spanish, French, and Mandarin provide authentic language instruction.

Most world language positions are in:

  • Middle school, grades 6-8 (ages 11-14)
  • High school, grades 9-12 (ages 14-18)

Some elementary schools may offer world language classes each year. However, these positions usually teach older children.

Language teachers will have different groups of students with varying levels of proficiency.

We also offer limited positions in social studies, math, and science at the middle school level.

English as a second language (ESL)

This program helps newcomers to the USA improve their English. It enables them to achieve academic success and become confident problem-solvers with a strong sense of belonging and connection to the world. As an ESL teacher, you will have students with varying degrees of fluency in English.

ESL is for all grades K-12 (ages 5-18). This position requires teachers with a higher level of English proficiency. Qualified applicants usually teach English in their home countries.
