The Visiting Teacher program enables local school districts to hire highly-qualified native speakers of various languages to teach at elementary, middle and high school levels.
Visiting Teachers make a one to three-year commitment to teach in Indiana, provided that the school district agrees to hire them. Participating districts employ these teachers in accordance with state regulations and policies and pay them according to their experience and certification level.
Teachers are interviewed and screened by representatives of Global Indiana prior to their placement in Indiana schools. These teachers are considered both highly qualified and licensed to teach in Indiana schools, and arrive with appropriate documentation of background evaluation. Some of them even have previous teaching experience in the U.S. The J1 work visas are issued by Global Indiana.
Visiting Teachers are responsible for their own housing arrangements and their immediate expenses upon arrival in Indiana. Orientation for Spanish teachers is provided in early July by the Spanish Ministry of Education in Madrid prior to departure. Teachers receive orientation and training in Indiana organized by Global Indiana and the Spanish Resource Center in collaboration with hosting schools and districts.
