|My wife is Brazilian, and we are considering moving to Brazil for a year. Right now, my wife and I are still in school, so we figure now would be a great time to travel before we decide to settle down in one place. Florianopolis would be the location of choice, due to the quality of life, the city offers plus it is a four hours drive from my wife's home city. So far, I have been to Florianopolis twice on vacation, and it seems like the ideal place to teach if I were to spend a year in Brazil.
I don't know too much about getting started in international teaching market, and this is my first time posting on here.
For those of you with teaching experience in Brazil, what are the best jobs I can easily get with the following credentials?
-Master's Degree in English
-Master's Degree in The Teaching of English as a Second Language including American public school K-12 certification
-Over 1,000 hours of online teaching experience for a Chinese company, including experience in lesson plan development with diagnostic exam assessment
-Over three years experience as a private tutor as part of a company paid relocation service
-One semester teaching Intermediate Listening and Speaking at the community college level
While my educational background and work history is strong, my Portuguese is limited. I studied Spanish in college, so I can pick up on some Portuguese words and phrases, but that's about it.
