Qualification for subjects taught in German or bilingually:

Minimum Qualifications:

Preschool or Kindergarten: teachers must have native-level German language skills, hold a Bachelor’s degree, and have two years of full-time teaching experience in an active, hands-on, early education setting.

Grades 1-12: teachers must have passed both First and Second State Exams for elementary and/or secondary education, or equivalent.

Clarifying information for non-German applicants: In Germany, teacher training for Grades 1 – 12 consists of four to five years of undergraduate education followed by a two-year graduate course (equivalent to an M.A. in Education.) Aspiring teachers then take the First State Exam and, if they pass, engage in two further years of training as a student teacher before taking the Second State Exam to become a nationally-certified teacher. We therefore consider U.S. equivalent for the Second State Exam to be a Master’s degree and 2+ years of full-time teaching experience.

Additional Qualifications:

  • Flexibility in subject area (multiple certifications or experience)
  • Exceptional differentiation skills and experience with cross-grade teaching and learning
  • Experience teaching in a bilingual setting; commitment to employing language acquisition strategies regardless of subject

Qualifications for subjects taught in English:

Minimum Qualifications: a Bachelor’s degree and two years of full-time teaching experience.

Preferred Qualifications: Master’s degree and at least two years of full-time teaching experience in early childhood, elementary, or secondary education.
