Re: PE Teachers and schools that only locally hire

Over the years the most helpful way for me to find the answer to this question was keeping track of which schools on Search Associates or ISS/Schrole even post a PE opening. If they do that means they are open to hiring international PE teachers, if not, they most likely use local PE teachers or don...

Re: PYP Online Certification?

Hi all, thanks so much for your thoughts and feedback. I did end up enrolling in the IB PYP online certificate programme, with the University of Windsor. I’ll take the following courses, it’ll cost $3000 Canadian total ($2,100USD). A good portion of this will be covered by my current school's PD fun...

PYP Online Certification?

Has anyone out here taken any of the ONLINE IB certification courses? I’m specifically interested in the PYP IB certificate in teaching and learning. I’ve done some of my own research on IB’s website but hoping for some specifics from those of you in the know. There’s about 50 Universities around th...

DODEA Recruitment Job Fairs?

Does DODEA hold job fairs similar to Search/ISS? I know their recruiting season is a lot later than ours, but that's about it. I tinkered around on their website and application process but I didn't see information on that, other than, they do post jobs on USAJOBS, their government website. I looked...

Location, Location, Location!

Do we have a detailed list for specifics about the locations of schools? Similar to our ever evolving Top Tier list, and our list on what subjects are in the highest demand, LOL. Yes, I know how to use Google Maps, I’m not talking about that and yes, there is some specific info in the paid member fo...

Re: DUI

Already lots of great advice. Another thing to consider is different schools/countries/recruiting agencies ask different questions. I think Search asks "have you ever been CONVICTED of a crime". You were arrested but were you actually convicted? Some schools ask "have you ever had a f...

Criminal Record?

I have a misdemeanor DUI (driving under the influence) on my record, from the states, which does show up on an FBI background check . It was from my college days over 20 years ago but still embarrassing and something I know, as long as I’m in education will follow me forever. Luckily it’s never cost...

Re: PE teachers?

Thanks justlooking,

Do you happen to know if Graded and ASB commonly hire PE teachers if they are already in or have had experience working in South America or is it almost all within Brazil?

Thanks PsyGuy! I was hoping for a response from you, these are the specifics I was hoping for. I've been a soccer coach for ages (mostly Youth and Middle School) my assumption is that HS coaches are bigger prizes for IS. No specific athletic organization qualifications. I'll look into it.

Thanks fine dude!

A couple of those schools were on my radar but some were not. Hope the timing of available positions works out. To be continued....
