I am a secondary school teacher in Canada and I am thinking of relocating to CR to teach English in the public school system because there are just no jobs in Ontario right now. Does anyone have any info on how to go about securing secondary school teaching jobs in CR? I am interested in teaching English. I will certainly be checking with the CR embassy in Ottawa but I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with trying to find a job in the public school system. I am willing to commit for a 2 year period teaching in a high school so that I can get my Spanish to a more advanced level. Also, does anyone have any idea how much a secondary school teacher is expected to make? I have a BEd plus CTESL plus an MA in TESOL, so teaching in a university or escuela secundaria is my goal. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

With your background you should be able to get a job in a private school. The pay is much better and less hassels...Public schools here are unfortunately terrible. Some of the private schools are very good and they pay well for here.
