Language Teacher Trainee Program
Work as a teacher trainee in a Spanish language immersion classroom. The Teacher Trainee Program places newly-trained international teachers in Spanish language immersion classrooms in the United States where they gain on-the-job experience for 10 months.
New teachers have an opportunity to take what they have learned in the classroom and put it into action. Through the program, teacher trainees will train to become effective bilingual educators, learn from experienced teachers, strengthen their English language skills and enjoy an experience that will transform them both professionally and personally.
This program is open to teachers from Latin America only.
