J-1 Teacher Exchange

About J-1 Teacher Exchange

International Leadership of Texas provides qualified foreign Spanish and Chinese teachers the opportunity to teach at an ILTexas K-8 or high school campus. ILTexas is designated by the U.S. Department of State to sponsor Exchange Visitor Teachers.

The mission of ILTexas is to prepare students for exceptional leadership roles in the international community by emphasizing servant leadership, mastering the English, Spanish, and Chinese languages, and strengthening the body, mind, and character. The Exchange Visitor Teacher Program promotes foreign language and cross-cultural awareness among the children of Texas, and it encourages the language and cultural development of exchange visitors

Exchange Visitor Teachers are required to teach full-time (minimum of 32 hours per week) during the school year. Teachers will be placed at an ILTexas primary school or secondary school based upon their experience as a teacher and the needs of the organization. A competitive salary based on experience will be offered for the duration of the Exchange Visitor Teacher’s employment. Teachers are permitted to teach in the United States for up to three years. An extension of one or two years may be available. Note, this is a temporary exchange program, and at the completion of the program, the Exchange Visitor Teacher will return back to his or her home country.
