Testimonials from Current Exchange Teachers:
“Spirit Cultural Exchange has given me an opportunity to teach in the USA and because of the chance that they have given to me, I was able to make friends here and get a chance to travel in the others cities like in Chicago, Las Vegas, Memphis, New Orleans and Nashville. Thank you for Spirit Cultural Exchange!” – Mitchel D., Philippines
“Spirit has been a wonder partner through the placement opportunity, and helping get the Visa. The monthly check-ins have been a good opportunity to reflect on my experiences. I believe this experience will make me a better and a hybrid teacher.” – Robert M., Kenya
“Teaching in the U.S. has been my goal 5 years ago, and Spirit Cultural Exchange helped me make it happen. They assisted me every step of the way, as I transition from the Philippines to the U.S. Teaching in the USA also brought me to places I only saw on movies. I will be forever grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity.” – Cindy E., Philippines
