Challenges Facing Teachers New to Working in Schools Overseas
Halicioglu, Margaret L.
Journal of Research in International Education, v14 n3 p242-257 Dec 2015
This article considers the potential challenges facing teachers moving abroad for the first time, both professional challenges in their school and personal challenges in their private life. It suggests that such teachers embarking on a professional adventure overseas would benefit from careful consideration of the kind of school they will thrive in, mindful preparation for the move to a foreign country, and an awareness that they will experience some form of culture shock. It identifies areas requiring further academic research into the issue.
