It looks like my Filipina wife might be getting a teaching position in a public school in NZ.

Can I legally work in NZ as well? I am from the USA.

Thanks

If your wife is entering on a work visa (she'll be granted a work permit upon arrival when she goes through immigration) then you will be entering on a dependent visa. Your wife's visa/permit will be tied to the sponsoring employer. As a dependent, you will have no such restrictions and you'll be able to be hired by any employer that wants to take you on. Have a look at the blue sticker in your passport if you have already applied for and received your visas. All is revealed there.

So the answer to your question is yes.

During my own migration experience, I found the New Zealand Immigration website pretty clear and comprehensive. I used the search function and came across this page, which seems to cover your query - and includes an application form.
