Teachers of third-culture children invest in the lives of their students, enabling their parents to serve full-time in their roles. Since many families reside in allocations where schools are inaccessible, we have a great need for teachers willing to educate children overseas. Many families have an existing curriculum; they simply need tutors who will facilitate the curriculum already developed for their children. Other families desire someone with an education degree who can create, develop, and administer age-appropriate curriculum based upon experience. In some fields, the families live in close enough proximity that a teacher can have a small classroom of children.
For those desiring a more traditional teaching environment, there are a number of international schools looking for teachers. Often, when our organization helps to staff international schools, this enables kids from our organization to attend the school at a reduced price.
