Dear All, Apologies if this topic is covered elsewhere; I did search the site but didn't come up with anything. I am thinking about working in the USA on a J-1 visa, which allows non-US nationals to teach in state or private schools for up to 5 years as part of a cultural exchange programme. There are several companies which offer assistance with placement in schools, or this can be arranged independently. I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has used this scheme, or similar, to learn about your experiences, advantages, pitfalls, advice etc. Thank you very much in advance.
