CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- A provider of global education programs is helping to welcome more than 200 international teachers to North Carolina.
VIF International Education says 215 teachers from at least 19 countries are participating in its Cultural Exchange Teacher program.
The teachers join a group of more than 450 visiting teachers who already serve in traditional or dual language K-12 classrooms in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
VIF CEO David Young says its teachers act as cultural ambassadors, are models of global citizenship and are asked and expected to help students understand how much there is to learn about the world beyond their local communities.
