2 positions at a teachers college in a small city located in the most western part of Hunan Province. This region, which is home to many people of the Tujia and Miao minorities, is one of the most underdeveloped in China. The city (population 300,000) is located 60 miles from a major nature preserve. These positions offer a wonderful opportunity to work with minority students from one of the poorer regions of China and make a real difference. Applicants should expect spicy food, good hiking, and very close relationships with students. They should alsobe prepared for tougher living conditions than those found in major Chinese cities.
