Bilingual teachers do much the same work as conventional K-12 classroom teachers, except they teach their subject area expertise in at least two languages. Some bilingual teachers help native English-speaking students to learn a foreign language, while others help English language learner (ELL) students improve their fluency in English.

Bilingual teachers’ duties mirror those of K-12 teachers. In elementary schools, they usually teach several subjects to one class of students. In middle and high schools, they teach one or two specialized subjects to multiple classes. The one central difference is teaching the designated material in two languages.

Some bilingual classrooms help immerse native English-speaking students in a foreign language and culture, while others help ELL students learn English while providing a high-quality education in the standard K-12 academic subjects. With a growing bilingual population and greater cultural and socioeconomic importance placed on speaking at least two languages, bilingual teachers play an increasingly valuable role in today’s education system.

As a bilingual teacher, your office will be your classroom. Your day-to-day job duties will likely include:

Teaching a curriculum provided by the school

Assigning and grading homework

Creating and grading tests and quizzes

Engaging your class with lectures, classroom discussions, relevant activities and demonstrations. 

You’ll also be challenged to connect course curriculum to pop culture, current events and the social realities of your students’ lives. These activities will help your students engage with the subject matter and understand how the content of the course plays a role in the larger world.
