Am currently teaching English as an Additional Language at a secondary school in Canada, but hope to return to international school teaching next fall. My B.Ed. specialized in in English Language Arts, but due to a recent immigration boom in our province, and the fact that I have a CELTA, I've been working with English language learners for the past three years. Here, EAL/ESL teachers are considered specialists, must have additional qualifications, and are in high demand. A former colleague from the U.K. that I taught with in Cairo mentioned that ESL specialists at her school were paid less than other teachers on staff. She advised me to market myself as an English teacher with ESL qualification rather than an ESL teacher when applying for overseas teaching jobs. Thoughts? Certainly a B.Ed. holder with a CELTA wouldn't be considered the same as a backpack-toting ESL teacher, would they?
