Visiting International Teachers information webinar scheduled for Feb. 10

School districts are invited to participate in an informational session about hosting a Visiting International Teacher (VIT) in the 2023-2024 school year. The webinar will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10. 

The webinar will be recorded and posted on the Visiting International Teacher webpage afterward. 

Register for the webinar at https://ksde.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAlduGqpj4qGNcWRoH7M4R5vUNWUz_uEjsL.

VITs are experienced teachers, all from Spain, who live and work in Kansas for up to five years as part of a cultural exchange. They teach a variety of subjects ranging from elementary education to high school chemistry and participate in cross-cultural activities in their schools and communities. 

When VITs return to their home school after the exchange, they share their experiences and increased knowledge of the United States and its educational system. In the 2022-2023 school year, there are eight new VITs and 12 returning VITs.
