Are you looking for the opportunity to spice up your teaching experience? Expand your
world by teaching overseas.
Currently, over 700 American elementary and secondary schools in international settings employ approximately 35,000 professionals. Most educators are on two-or-three-year renewable contracts however, some schools may hire new teachers for one year. Hiring requirements, salaries, and benefits vary considerably with many offering free housing, vehicle, U.S. tax exemptions, tuition savings for dependent children, R&R (rest and relaxation) trips, and bonuses upon completion of contracts.
American international schools provide education comparable to that in the United States for the children of U.S. citizens residing there. The curriculum is vigorous and highly academic. These schools are always looking for knowledgeable and readily available teachers to fill their openings.
A successful international job search requires an early start and careful planning. Recruiting fairs provide a wonderful opportunity to meet, network, and interview with many prospective employers. The University of Northern Iowa provides overseas placement services as well as the International School Services (ISS). The University of Northern Iowa will be conducting their UNI Overseas Recruiting Fair February 3-5, 2012. Be sure to visit there website and contact them if you plan to attend.
If you have passion for teaching, yet feel like you need a change, teaching overseas may be the answer you have been searching for.
