Montana State University's Office of International Programs is seeking volunteers to host international English, math and science teachers on Sunday, Sept. 27.

MSU is partnering with Bozeman Public Schools and MSU’s Department of Education to welcome 18 secondary school English, math and science teachers from 14 countries throughout the world who will spend six weeks in Bozeman beginning Sept. 18.

Volunteers will pick up the teachers the morning of Sept. 27 and show them around Bozeman and the surrounding area for the day. 

The teachers come from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Nicaragua, Rwanda, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Bolivia.

The international educators are part of the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program, a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, which provides secondary-school teachers from Europe, Eurasia, South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Western Hemisphere with an opportunity to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the U.S.

The visiting teachers will partner with teachers at Bozeman High School, Chief Joseph Middle School and Sacajawea Middle School for a 40-hour internship and engage in civic and community service throughout their program.
