Thanks for the info Gus. Any chance you could share the names of a few schools that are safe and high quality in the ME in your opinion? If you don't want to share here, I can give you my email.

I'm also a French teacher who is not a native speaker. Last year I began looking around for an International Teaching job and my hubby and I are trying to figure out if we're going to go all in and register with an agency this year. I have to admit, I think that being a non-native speaker makes it p...

Librarian endorsement?

Would taking grad classes to get a school library endorsement help me to find a job abroad even if I don't have a job as a school librarian? I'm already a h.s. teacher but since I teach a modern language and I'm not a native speaker I'm trying to see what else I can do to help me be more marketable....

Thanks for the info psyguy! And one more question, I assume there's no way for a spouse to find a job in Belgium, even if they do speak French, right?

Oh wow. I have researched it and our tax bracket would be around 40-50%. And thanks for the civics lesson.

If anyone else has lived in Belgium with a family and would like to chime in, I'd really appreciate it.

We're not looking for a penthouse apartment or anything. Just to be able to live in a 2 bedroom, not worry about every cent we spend, and be able to travel a bit. Won't we loose half of our salary in taxes there too?

I did end up giving them to the end of the week and then I sent a follow-up email making it clear that we are in line with their religion. I haven't heard from them since, so I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed for now.

Thanks for the advice! It's been about 3 working days since I emailed them. I'm not sure how fast schools are working to fill positions at this point in the year. It's hard to decide what's pushy and what's lazy at this point.

Advice please

So I finally received a response from one school, and it's a school I'm really excited about. They asked me how their school's principles would influence my application...refering to the fact that they are a Christian school. As an American who was brought up to be super PC, I responded delicately t...
