I'm in Europe at the moment and will begin the job in August.

I got a job as an international school counselor!

Major change of events for me, as my previous posts reveal that I had been trying to secure a position as a school counselor in an international school and lo and behold, it happened. Now I have questions on the best way to bolster my current qualifications and capitalize on this enormously fortunat...

Re: Where should I do my student teaching?

Thank you for breaking this down for me and letting me think critically about some considerations between my two options that I hadn't previously considered. I'm leaning towards pursuing the American School in Western Europe. I don't need a visa for the school in Western Europe because I'm an EU cit...

Where should I do my student teaching?

I have two solid leads to do my student teaching, this upcoming Fall. I am starting Teacher Ready in August and will specialize in SPED/ESOL/Social Studies. I already have a masters in Counseling. My goal is to become a 1:1 Learning Support Coordinator in an International School and then return to t...

Re: Special Education in IS

Hi @wrldtrvlr123 I've been following this thread and wanted to know how you were able to accomplish this (it's from the FAQ on the Teacher Ready website): Yes you can to your field work at a DoDEA school but there are additional application documents and additional field work required by DoDEA. DoDE...

Re: American or Brit Certification/Credential for non-citize

@PsyGuy

I'm trying to sift through all of the information in this thread and something is unclear to me:

If I complete Teacher Ready and become US state certified, can I apply for QTS in the UK (I"m a dual US/EU citizen)?

Or do I additionally need to complete the PCGEi as well?

Thank you

Re: Please critique my plan

Maybe then I'll try and find an International school in Chiang Mai that will let me complete my Teacher Ready classroom requirements. I just read through a lot of prior posts about TEFL & CELTA and I can see your point, @PsyGuy. My CELTA experience won't count for anything in the IS environment. May...

Re: Please critique my plan

Thank you, @PsyGuy for the response. I appreciate it. The internships at the international schools didn't materialize in time to start Teacher Ready in March. Probably for the best as the country we are in now is a PITA for jobs and is over-saturated at the moment. It's looking like we may head east...

Re: Please critique my plan

Thank you for taking the time to write out such a thoughtful and detailed response. If I've heard you correctly, I am eligible to sit for the Social Studies and Special Education tests upon completion of my Teacher Ready program. Once I have certification in those areas, I can see if my Georgia Mast...

Re: Please critique my plan

Thank you @PsyGuy & @wrldtrvlr123. I appreciate the time you've both taken to leave such detailed responses. PsyGuy, you bring up a good point: I would STRONGLY advise contacting the FL DOE, its likely your degree in general "counseling" is not going to meet the requirements for a FL certificate in ...
