Tyler Sister Cities provides information to our community about the City of Yachiyo’s Assistant Language Teacher opportunity.  The employer for the teaching positions is the Yachiyo Education Board and therefore the program is organized and run by the city leadership of Yachiyo, who has established all employment criteria and makes all final decisions about the hiring of Assistant Language Teachers.
