The Role of the Bilingual Education Teacher

Bilingual Education teachers have an increasingly valuable role in the Michigan education system to ensure that culturally diverse learners are able to make the same academic strides as other students. As a bilingual education teacher, your primary role is to promote educational equity by ensuring your students are able to understand the curriculum in their home language. You will deliver content area instruction and promote literacy in the students’ home language, while also providing instruction in English language and literacy.

Responsibilities of the Bilingual Education teacher

  • Teaching curriculum provided by the school
  • Assigning and grading homework
  • Creating and grading tests and quizzes
  • Engaging the class in discussions, relevant activities, and demonstrations

Bilingual Education teachers can expect to work school days: mornings and afternoons five days a week, nine to ten months of the year. You’ll enjoy an optimal work-life balance with extended winter, spring, and summer vacations.
