Teaching Requirements

outsideclassEach year the American Board schools seek experienced and qualified teachers to join their faculties. Due to the nature of the schools, foreign teaching positions are available in limited subject areas. Currently foreign teachers may be hired to teach English, Mathematics, Science, Art, Music and Physical Education in the secondary school, grades 9–12. All other subjects are taught by Turkish nationals.

  • A BA / BS degree from a 4-year accredited college/university in the subject area to be taught,
  • A current teaching certificate/license in that subject area with appropriate grade level endorsement,
