Hi all, I will be relocating to Los Angeles in January due to my partners job. I am hoping to continue teaching whilst in America and currently have an English Degree, PGCE, Masters in Education and 6 years teaching experience in the UK. As exciting as the prospect of moving to LA is, it also raises lots of questions for me so I'm hoping that someone reading this might be able to help me out with a few of them! How easy is it to get teaching work in California? I wouldn't have the state qualification so assume I'd need to apply to a private or charter school? How different is the American education system/curriculum to the UK? Would a full time teaching role in the USA feel like returning to my NQT year again? I'd like to be able to enjoy my time abroad and travel around at weekends so am hoping that I wouldn't find the role any more demanding than I currently do. Would a school be prepared to help with my visa? I'd be really interested to hear from anyone who has experience of teaching in America/California or who can give advise re visas. Thank you!
