When people ask me how I got my first job at an international school in Japan (and my second job in China), they have many misconceptions. They think that you have to speak the local language to be hired and that I just teach English to the native population. This cannot be further from the reality. I am a school counselor and my caseload is 80 students (it was 350+ when I was in the U.S).
International schools are basically the same as schools in the U.S. and Canada and they are hiring for ALL Elementary positions, ALL Middle School positions (English, Math, Science, PE, etc.), & ALL High School positions (Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, ESL, Music, Choir, Drama, Administration, Counseling etc.)
Specialty areas like Counseling, School Psychs, Special Ed., Librarians, ESL, and Speech are in GREAT demand.
My eBook shows how I navigated the sometimes anxious process of getting a teaching job abroad. It is an easy read in story format that gives you the most direct way to do it.
Not only does it show you how to do it, but it shatters the misconceptions & goes over the reasons and excuses that people use to not do it (houses, mortgages, children etc.).
My eBook is your guide to gaining the confidence to make the jump to an international school and I am the cheerleader for it because if I can do it, so can most teachers.
Sense of adventure required.
