Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley is a designated Exchange Visitor Program Sponsor for Teachers applying to work at the school. Over the past five decades, EB has received dozens of foreign teachers, mainly from France. These exchanges enrich participants and the school.
These teachers act as ambassadors of their home countries, sharing with colleagues and students their own culture and "savoir faire". In turn, they receive a unique opportunity to gain:
- First hand experience with American society and culture
- Refined professional skills through exposure to a new educational philosophy
- Better professional and conversational knowledge of the English language
Once they complete the program and return to their respective home countries, our foreign teachers are able to share their newly acquired knowledge and experiences with their peers.They help foster mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of their home country.
Teachers first apply to current openings at EB, then complete the J1 application process with EB sponsorship.
