Our Super Star Teaching Staff

Lango's teachers make our classes truly exceptional.  In our selection process, we look for five distinct qualities:  native/bilingual fluency, limitless positive energy, creativity, teaching experience with relevant age groups and outstanding communication skills with both children and their parents.  Beyond these qualities, though, our teachers bring unique cultural perspectives and professional backgrounds that enable them to create rich, engaging experiences in the classroom.  If you are interested in becoming a Lango teacher, please contact us today.
