CIEE Teach Immersion Chile


You do not need to be a teacher with extensive international experience to apply! Whether you're major was art history, zoology, or anything in between; if you have a positive attitude and solid work ethic and a genuine interest in education, your academic background will serve you well in the classroom - this time from the teacher's side of the desk.

CIEE and the Chilean Ministry of Education are looking for well-rounded applicants who are independent, adventurous, and who adapt well to new situations. Participants must be able to expect the unexpected and thrive in a changing environment! It's essential that participants are self-motivated, responsible, and recognize that their first priority is to their school and their teaching assignment. 110% commitment to the program is essential.
