Almost as soon as we got back from the job fair, Andreas and I started fielding queries from curious colleagues about how to land an overseas teaching job. It’s hard to say whether this is because these teachers have (like us) long nurtured dreams of working overseas, or whether the depressed and depressing state of public education is pushing them over the edge. Maybe it’s a little of both.
We had so many educators asking us for information that I put together a short “getting started” for anyone who’s interested. It shows up as a link at the top of this blog’s home page. We are hardly experts – we’ve met international teachers who have seen the world through careers that have taken them to schools all over the globe. But we learned a tremendous amount through our first experience with the application process and we’re happy to share our new knowledge with other first-timers.
