See where YOU fit in to Tyler ISD

Visiting International Teacher Program

The Visiting International Teachers program allows certified teachers from other countries to teach in Tyler ISD schools for a period of up to five years. Teachers are hired to teach a variety of subjects at all levels, from Pre-K to 12th grade such as math, science, Spanish, English as a Second Language, and even English Language Arts. Visiting teachers provide Tyler ISD students an exciting opportunity to learn about the world and other cultures. Our district matches visiting teachers with experienced teachers who have been through this process. Through this program, many Tylerites have made friends with people beyond our borders, which is an added bonus of the program.
