This is where it all starts An opportunity of a lifetime
What is an opportunity with SDE? It's a beginning. It's about touching the lives of students and giving them a bright future through English. It's about guiding them into an international culture. It's energetic days filled with smiles and laughter... but that's just the beginning. Where it goes from there is up to you. Enjoy the free time and long vacations of public school, the enthusiasm and small class sizes of a private school, maybe you specialize in a subject, or maybe you want to take advantage of an opportunity that might open in our corporate office. There are plenty of opportunities with SDE and no matter what you decide to do once you've arrived, one thing is for certain, your new, once in a lifetime experience, begins right here!
