Classroom Instructors

Kids Like Languages instructors bring these abilities, skills, and knowledge to their work:

• Vitality and enthusiasm when working with students. 

• Firm and fair classroom management skills.

• Fluency of the target language, and cultural knowledge of the countries of the language being studied.

• Teach through drama, art, music, games, everyday situations, gestures and repetition.

Most of our instructors are native to the language and culture they teach. Some are formally trained as educators. All receive Kids Like Languages training. 

Kids Like Languages instructors pass a background check administered by the Oregon Department of Education, Transportation Section. This is the same background check performed on school bus drivers, food preparers, parent volunteers and other school staff.
