The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is now accepting applications for teachers interested in spending the 2007-2008 school year teaching English to students in Taiwan. Up to ten teachers will be selected to participate next year in the Teaching in Taiwan program, which is offered in partnership with the government of Taiwan.
Teachers selected to teach in Taiwan will sign an 11-month contract, which runs from August to July. The first month is spent in cultural training. Teaching assignments for the rest of the year vary according to the school, but involve teaching English to students and to teachers.
To be eligible to apply, teachers must have a current Arkansas teaching license; a masterís degree is preferred but not required.
Applications and answers to frequently asked questions are available on the ADE Web site at http://arkansased.org/teachers/taiwan.html.
Applications must be returned to Beverly Williams, Assistant Commissioner for Human Resources/Licensure, Arkansas Department of Education, # 4 State Capitol Mall, Little Rock, AR 72201 by noon on February 16, 2007. Interviews will be scheduled for March and selections will be made by the end of March.
