Subject: [teacherartexchange] Teaching overseas

Is there anyone on the list, who is a U.S. citizen, and is currently
teaching in a school overseas? I know there are International Schools
and Department of Defense (DoD) schools. Are there any other options?

I'm wondering about:
1. how competitive these schools are in hiring teachers
2. do they prefer native English speakers
3. how long are the employment contracts/assignments
4. minimum hiring requirements
5. salary ranges/benefits
6. is foreign language proficiency necessary
7. housing costs/cost of living
8. work permits/visas necessary

I'm looking at the future and am interested in teaching in Germany. I
had German proficiency, but that was years ago. I would have plenty
of time to reacquaint myself with the language, as teaching overseas
is something I'm looking at 2 - 5 years in the future. Would becoming
a Fulbright exchange teacher be an advantage in getting an overseas job?

Any resources or suggestions you can provide would be greatly

Thanks in advance,
Doug in West Palm Beach, FL
