Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia? Relatively safe these days or insanely dangerous? Teaching opps. for native American? Decent working conditions and pay, if so?

Also, I know that Celta and Trinity, are a couple of the better teaching certificates to have. But what if I have a 140-hour i-to-i certificate with just 20 hours face to face in-class training; a business English specialist certificate from same; my bachelorís in journalism; 10 years experience as a freelance writer/editor; and three years experience teaching ESL in the U.S.? Iím a native English speaker from the U.S. Iím in my mid-50s. Considering all this, am I in a good position without one of the upper-tier TEFL certificates?

Thanks in advance for your consideration with this.

Uhm... Cross Tunisia off your list for a while. It's definitely not safe here at the moment...
