Visiting International Teacher Program Logo

     The Visiting International Teachers program allows certified teachers from Spain and China to teach in Kansas schools for a period of up to three years. Teachers are hired primarily to teach Spanish, Chinese, and English as a Second Language, but may teach other subjects such as art, math, science and elementary grades. Visiting teachers provide Kansas students an exciting opportunity to learn about the world and other cultures.
