Student Spotlight

Leann Yuill (from Tennessee Tech University) student taught in India in Spring 2020. She taught middle school mathematics. "As a teacher, I learned that I can’t make assumptions for any student. In this profession and as someone who wants to teach overseas one day, I learned more about the value and beauty of diversity and the importance in creating a learning culture where students feel welcome."

Costs and Scholarships

Global Gateway for Teachers cannot provide exact cost information since costs will vary throughout the year and from one individual to the next. Please note that all estimates are listed in U.S. Dollars. Keep in mind that foreign currency exchange rates will affect the value of the U.S. Dollar and hence your budget.

Teaching Responsibilities

Students may teach a variety of subjects and grade levels. Because English is one of India’s national languages, in most cases they would teach in their own licensing area. Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in India for the ESL/ENL license addition. Others may be possible as well, depending on the placement/license.

Other Considerations

Proficiency in Hindi and/or other local languages is not required, but participants are encouraged to learn basic words and phrases before they leave for their placement.
