What are my options?

What are my options?

Postby Alchemeister » Wed Sep 18, 2019 12:37 am

Hi everyone. I'm new to the site.
About me:
- I'm from Michigan.
- I have been teaching English in Japan for 8 years.
- I am currently teaching my own classes at a private girls' school.
- My degree is in Communications.
- No certificates.
-Married with one kid.

I want to improve my teaching skills/get a higher qualification. I want to study something that will improve my salary/credentials in Japan, but I also want to be able to find a job when/if I go back to America. The best option would be a MAT in TESOL but I haven't found any that you can do from over seas / are affordable. 3 questions.

1. What is that fastest way for someone in my situation to get a teaching certification in the states which I could then transfer to get a Michigan teaching license or transfer to get a QTS?

2. Which Masters would give me the most practical knowledge in terms of English teaching.

3. Which of these two things would I be better off focusing on first?

Thank you for any insight, I've already learned a lot from this forum.
