These teachers were raised and educated in other countries, and therefore, cultural backgrounds, language, and approaches to teaching and learning sometimes differ than those of teachers raised and educated in the US. This book addresses the potential needs of international teachers and the types of professional development and supports from which they might benefit, in preparation for the job and during inservice. Included in this book is a copy of a validated survey for identifying the professional development needs of international teachers. The survey might be beneficial in helping professional development providers 1) better understand areas to consider when developing resources and supports, and 2) provide an instrument to collect data from groups of teachers on their needs prior to addressing them.
