Since 1986, we have been dedicated to expanding opportunities for educators to teach overseas and take advantage of the life enriching experience of working, living and teaching outside of one's home country.
Over 30 years ago, before Google searches, websites and virtual recruiting fairs, when ways to get an international teaching job were few and far between and all included getting on a plane and flying across the globe at great cost, The International Educator was born. TIE started as a newspaper designed to facilitate this process, to publish and share job vacancies from international schools worldwide, and to build connections in this burgeoning community.
Fast forward to a time when hundreds of new international schools are opening around the world each year, when virtual fairs are on the rise, and opportunities have never been greater. TIE continues to facilitate this process, with more expanded and refined tools to meet the needs of this rapidly growing community. Serving the experienced international educator, or those just beginning their career, whether a school of 5000 students or 50, TIE is recognized as a top resource for finding positions in international schools, for cost-effective robust recruiting solutions, for attracting and finding the most qualified candidates, and for supporting and enriching this community with valuable content, research and news.
WHO WE ARE
The International Educator (TIE), along with its sister organization The Principals’ Training Center (PTC), is conducted under a non-profit organization with 501 (c)(3) status, called the Overseas Schools Assistance Corporation (OSAC). Under this status, TIE aims to match the best educators with the best international schools around the world and to provide educational ideas, advice and practices that are useful and valuable for international schools and their staffs. TIE also serves to link together the international education community and to spread information about the vast global network of English-speaking schools to as many qualified teachers as possible so they will be aware of this vibrant world community and the numerous job opportunities that exist.

TIE made me dream of what life could be like working in other countries. There is a nice sense of community to it. It brings us together and makes international teachers feel like they are not alone.
Both of my schools provided TIE in the staff room, and I read its articles and browse the many job openings in TIE. I appreciate the personal stories as written by teachers, events listed that are relevant to the international school community, and ads about schools, whether theyâ€™re hiring or not.

I love seeing what other educators are doing. It is very inspiring to see all these great projects that kids all over the world are involved in and how my students in the Dominican Republic might be working on projects similar to those of kids in Japan.
I find TIE's job searching website to be easy to navigate and helpful to find openings. The magazine, (The International Educator), is absolutely fantastic. The are many great regular contributors, and now some terrific bloggers too. There are a number of very good guest or feature writers as well. It is a quarterly highlight read for me that I would hate to miss. Love it!

TIE is most helpful for me through the articles and website. There is always great insight from a variety of leaders. It makes learning about schools and programs easy and it is a great way to keep track of things in the world of international teaching.

I discovered TIE thanks to Dan Kerr and the PTC. I decided to submit some articles to TIE this year and got some positive feedback from colleagues. I see TIE as another way to network in the world of international education and I only meet good people through PTC and TIE.
