An overseas student teaching experience isn’t a dream but a reality!  The STAGE/CCTECC program allows education majors from member colleges to do their student teaching at overseas schools. Our STAGE Coordinator will contact overseas schools that accept student teachers to find a placement that will be beneficial to your teacher preparation. As part of this program, Interaction International holds a Pre-Experience Orientation Seminar where topics such as cross-cultural transition, the international school, the third culture kids profile, the multi-cultural classroom, culture stress and various other activities are aimed at preparing you for the experience of student teaching overseas. You will also be meeting other student teachers from different colleges who may be going to the same school or area as you.
