International Programs & Training
Pacific University's Teach in Mexico program is a practicum experience for pre-service and practicing teachers who are seeking a teaching experience in another culture. The goal of the program is to help teachers understand the transitions which Mexican children make in public schools, as well as to provide an opportunity for our teachers to explore their own assumptions about the culturally diverse children they could well be teaching in the future.
