New Teachers Needed
Our teachers are one of the most valuable resources that we have, and we are always keeping an eye open for new people to join our team. If you know of new people that are coming into town, might be planning to come here or already live here and have an interest in teaching please ask them to get in touch with us. Teaching at the Danish School is a great way to keep teaching activities on your resume, get to know fellow Danes in the area, learn about bilingualism, subsidize your income and have fun.
We offer lessons two times a week, each lesson consisting of two hours plus prep work. Excellent verbal and written proficiency in the Danish language is a requirement.
Please do not contact the Scandinavian Centre Office.
