The CSB/SJU Education International Teaching Externship (ITE) program is a 4-week international opportunity where students will have a chance to work as a teaching assistant and/or team teacher in one of several locations.

Teaching internationally is a great way to set yourself apart from others for job applications. ITE will be a professional adventure you will never forget!
