Great resource – U.S. Dept. of State’s information on Teaching Overseas

Thank goodness for the U.S. Department of State!  They seem to be keeping track of many international schools actually and helping out international school teachers at the same time.

One way they are helping is by offering the “FAST TRAIN (The Foreign Affairs Spouses Teacher Training Program)” programme to teachers wanting to get another license or add-on certificates to their already existing licensure. This programme started in 1990 and holds classes at George Mason University.  I personally know some international school teachers that took classes here and it worked well for them.

This webpage also highlighted TIE online (The International Educator) as the “private non-profit organization dedicated to helping overseas international schools find qualified teaching staff and helping qualified teachers find positions at these overseas schools.”

They also highlight a link to another website that apparently posted job vacancies for positions at international schools.  After doing a quick search, no international schools came up.  Maybe there will be a few vacancies come hiring season.

There is a list of 197 international schools that the U.S. Department provides assistance to. These school support an American-style education.

Africa
East Asia and Pacific
Europe
Near East and South Asia
Western Hemisphere

Then they have a list of international schools that may also be options for American families living abroad.  This list includes U.S. and non-U.S. curriculum, religious, proprietary, and local public schools. 

Africa
East Asia and Pacific
Europe
Near East and South Asia
Western Hemisphere

Finally, there is information about the Fulbright scholarship and information about serving in the Peace Corps.
