Misconception #5: It's too late to apply for this school year.
Some college graduations have already passed, with others just around the corner. Elementary teachers and students alike are eager for summer break. Camps are preparing for their busiest season, and churches are anticipating a different rhythm throughout the summer months.
So, is it too late to serve with TeachBeyond this coming school year? Absolutely not!
There are still hundreds of openings posted on our Opportunity Board. Yes, hundreds. If you're considering overseas opportunities, check out the list! They're not all for certified teachers either. We have an urgent need for dorm parents, ESL instructors, and chaplains, as well as a variety of teaching roles. If you know of someone who might be interested, would you consider sharing this site with them?
Because many positions with TeachBeyond do involve raising financial support, waiting much longer to fill these roles will make it unlikely that new staff will be able to relocate in time for the beginning of the school year. It's not too late, but time is of the essence. Is God asking you to take the next step - despite your uncertainty - to inquire and pray and see how He works?
