I have five years of ESL experience and have just got my state teaching license. I am ready to make the transition to better things.
I will make a grand stab at getting into a good international school, however the competition will be keen.
Therefore, my backup plan is to get into a public elementary school.
My question is for those who know, those who are there and who have knowledge of the way things go.
Do public schools there hire full-time foreign teachers and if so, are they paid more or the same as local school teachers?
I ask this question because it seems some countries do, some don't, and some have a system where foreigners just show up to teach a class or two. Also, it is hard to find the information quickly...
I appreciate any information you may have.. Thanks!
