The Teacher Ambassador Program is looking for a few good baby boomers.
The “Teacher Ambassador Program” will train Americans for English-speaking positions at magnet high schools in 13 Chinese cities. It’ll differ from other programs by training participants in how to:
• Appropriately incorporate American styles of teaching (project-based learning, dialogue, critical thinking, etc.); and
• Identify and pursue culturally appropriate community service opportunities in and out of the classroom.
It’s run by United World College-USA (which operates schools and colleges around the world that’ve brought 40,000 students from 100+ countries to learn together, bond and work towards a more peaceful world) and the Ameson Foundation, a charitable organization in NY that focuses on cultural and education exchanges in China.
China is super hungry right now for American teachers (for various subjects, many of which are AP), and some of their best current teachers (in public schools) are folks in their 60s.
