Teaching Nomad was founded in March 2011 on the basis of connecting great teachers with great schools in Asia. After moving to Shanghai, our founder, Brett, discovered a need to fill the gap between these two groups. A school’s reputation relies on its teachers and teachers must trust their school as they brave moving to a new country. Neither group wants to be let down, but unfortunately, many people were being let down. Teaching Nomad has been designed to be a cut above other recruiters, to provide a trustworthy source of great jobs for teachers as well as a time and cost-saving tool for schools.
Teaching Nomad operates from three offices; our Asia headquarters based in Shanghai, China and our North American headquarters in Austin, Texas & Denver, Colorado. As one of the few companies in our industry with a truly global presence, we provide both strong local insight as well as access to recruitment channels only accessible in North America.
Teaching Nomad is built on the foundation that you can have anything you want if you just help enough other people get what they want. Our mission is to:
We will improve the global teach abroad environment by providing teachers with jobs in schools they can trust, believe in and enjoy working at. In turn, we will provide schools with committed, excited teachers that will always maintain the highest standards of learning. In facilitating successful placements we are changing lives by helping others to experience global travel and bridge cross-cultural awareness.
We will provide an outstanding lifestyle for our employees by paying top wages, sharing in profits, rewarding productivity and providing a platform for personal and professional growth.
