Meet Our Teachers
All of our teachers come from various backgrounds and experiences. We encourage anyone interested who meets the requirements to apply. Living abroad and making a difference in a foreign country is a unique opportunity not available to everybody. Upon their return, teachers find that they have learned quite a bit from the very students they were teaching.

Teach Abroad Participants Seek Your Assistance
There are highly-qualified participants selected by Phoenix Sister Cities to represent Phoenix for the Teach Abroad Program in Himeji, Japan to serve as an Assistant Language Teachers (ALT’s) and Assistant Supervisor of Education (ASE’s). It was a very competitive and rigorous interview process for the selection of only a few applicants. Phoenix Sister Cities has been in partnership with Himeji, Japan for this program for over thirty years. The Teach Abroad Program gives college graduates with various degrees the opportunity to teach English to Japanese school children as well as conduct adult classes for members of the community. As an ALT/ASE our primary function is to be a cultural representative whose goal is to get the students---and the community--excited about learning English and to expose them to American culture.
Proud & Thankful Teach Abroad ALT/ASE’s
