We are only as successful as our teachers and work very hard on ensuring their success. We work to bring schools throughout the United States excellent teachers from around the world in the following subjects:
- Special education
- Foreign languages including Spanish, Chinese, etc.
- Elementary education
- Social studies
- … and more!
Our teachers bring their experiences not only to the classroom, but also to their local communities, providing opportunities for cross-cultural learning and exchange both in and out of the classroom.
All of our teachers meet the eligibility requirements for the J-1 Teacher-Visitor visa. This means that each TPG teacher:

-Has a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in education
-Is fluent in English
-Commits to 1-3 years of teaching in the U.S., with the possibility of a 2-year extension (for a total of 5 years)
