Chinese American International School seeks an Mandarin World Language Pathway Teacher (6th-8th Grade) Exempt, full-time position
Description: OPPORTUNITY Founded in 1981, Chinese American International School (CAIS) is the nation’s first Mandarin immersion day school. For more than four decades, CAIS has been educating students through Mandarin immersion pedagogy to embrace Chinese, become their best selves, and contribute to a better world.

We intend to meet World Language Pathway students where they are and establish learning goals that are aligned with ACTFL proficiency guidelines.
