WHAT WORKS IN EDUCATION The George Lucas Educational Foundation


Need advice to find work back here in the USA after working abroad. What steps can i take to be a Life Skills teacher. I love working with these kids. I am a teacher who has worked at international schools for most of my career. I have worked in France, England, Turkey, Malaysia, Zimbabwe and Egypt. I am back in the states now in Oregon but can only get a subbing job. I was most recently a theatre and drama teacher for the past 10 years so I am having difficulty finding work back here in the US. Drama jobs are few and no one wants me for sped or esl since it has been more than ten years since I taught it. Added to these difficulties I taught in private schools abroad and American seem to think that is too different to work here either as a private school teacher or public. How do I convince people I would be great at my job?
