What's It Like Over There? Answers to the International Teaching Top 10
Hoiseth, Lois
National Middle School Association (NJ3), Middle Ground v10 n3 p27-28 Feb 2007
In this article, the author provides brief answers to the top 10 questions other educators ask her about her time teaching overseas: (1) Do you teach English?; (2) Do you work for the military? Do you work on an army base?; (3) So, what's the school like?; (4) How did you get a job like that?; (5) What made you decide to go overseas?; (6) Do you speak Polish/Arabic/Malaysian?; (7) What do your kids think about living overseas?; (8) Do you make good money? Does it pay well?; (9) Do you have to be a trained teacher?; and (10) Do you feel safe "over there"? She cautions readers that teaching overseas is not for everyone, but can be an excellent opportunity for those who are looking for a change in their routine, are comfortable in new situations, and are ready for a new teaching experience.
