Chesterfield County Public Schools will welcome 30 teachers from 10 different countries for the 2023-24 school year. These teachers are coming to Chesterfield through a program called Participate Learning, which pairs school districts with international teachers seeking to relocate to the United States.
These teachers have completed the same hiring and interview process as other teacher candidates, and they have accepted positions in Chesterfield schools. Once they arrive in Chesterfield in July, they will need help becoming familiar with the area. Community members who are knowledgeable about Chesterfield and the school system are needed to serve as community advisers to teachers in this group. Advisers will help introduce international teachers to the community, serve as a resource and local expert and provide emotional, cultural, social and logistical support. Participate Learning provides a stipend for those who serve as local advisers. See the brochure and the flyer for more information. If you are interested in becoming a community adviser, contact Tito Luna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
