Teacher & Professional Training Program Experience

I’ve learned a lot and I will rush back home and apply it in my class. I will share it with my school and my principal, but also with my students—who are the best part.

Training Institute for Korean Secondary School Teachers of English

Watch our 2019 KAEC program summary.

TIEC partners with the Korean-American Educational Commission (Fulbright) to bring Korean secondary school teachers to the United States for Intensive English training, and a cultural exchange with area schools.

This 7-week program has helped nearly 500 Korean secondary school teachers gain a deeper understanding of American culture and life, to experience American public education, particularly ESL methodologies and practices, to strengthen English curricula and improve the quality of teaching about the United States in secondary schools in Korea.

Besides just helping my teaching experience, this is also helping me become a better person by opening my mind to experience life and not judge people different from myself.
