TEACHERS RECRUITMENT

 

One major goal of L&B Schoolhouse is to assist in providing solutions for professional development needs of educators through our Visiting Schoolteachers Program (the VST Program). The VST Program is to support international teachers in sharing and shaping their professional skills, knowledge, and work experience in the United States. Numerous foreign teachers have shared with us the disillusionment of not being able to realize their professional aspiration of work visit to the US owing to the perceived complexity of the securing a teaching position, and the US visa process or, we are told, the prohibitive costs frequently incurred in steering US visa applications to fruition. However, the VST Program came to be due to the widespread shortage of qualified teachers in some school subjects in many areas of the country, and the expanding demand for cultural exchange across cultures. Thus, the program provides the opportunity for increased awareness of global diversity of ideas, values, worldviews, and ways of life.  The VST Program is also open to US-based teachers (schoolteachers and teacher trainers) who want to go overseas to hold teacher workshops. 

 

L&B Schoolhouse, in collaboration with overseas associates, provides personalized services to foreign national teachers seeking employment in the United StatesWe source, and prepare foreign teacher candidates who want to teach in the USA schools. We offer guidance to candidates in foreign transcripts evaluation, certification, and school job placement. We handle the teachers' immigration paperwork, and guide teachers until they arrive US.  Specifically, we are looking to place Mathematics, General Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Special Education teachers.

Placement through the VST Program offers you, the teacher, the same salary as if you were a US teacher. The salary will depend on your education and experience.

Submissions for Your Placement File

 

A complete placement file will include the following items:

1. Professional resume

 

2. Three letters of references

 

3. Personal letter To the School Principal

 

4. Photocopies of all academic degrees, teaching certificates, and passport/national identity

Notes

 

Professional resumes, personal letter to the prospective principal and positive letters of references are crucial components of each file. Without these from the appropriate sources, we will be unable to assist you. Please send one copy of your current resume on plain white paper. Theories about resume writing vary considerably. However, we encourage our teacher candidates to focus the content of their resumes on experiences that relate to education, essentially those that convey their essential skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm to work with K-12 students.

 

The most effective letter of reference is one, which either speaks in detail about the teacher's academic abilities, or provides a positive evaluation of the candidate's schoolwork experience.  The letters of reference (letters of recommendation) should come from professional sources and should include at least one superintendent, principal, or other official in one of the school districts/boards of education where you have been employed. The letters should be printed on school, or school board letterhead.

 

Your personal letter To the School Principal should highlighting your qualifications, career accomplishments, goals, and any other thing you may want to say that jusfies your candidacy.
