    Let's just hope they're not a maths teacher.

    Well, I suppose if sitting in a ghetto watching Netflix is your thing then 68,000 might just stretch as long as you don't eat too much
  2. Hi! I'd definitely like to reach out, as my partner is a US citizen (I'm from the UK) but we are not married, so it's proving hard to find out how to continue teaching in California, where we would live. Can you apply for a CA state teaching license at any time (i.e. before I have a sponsor)?

    m-frogley. The fact that you have a US citizen as a partner is not relevant to your application for a work visa. You would be considered as applying as an individual and in the same pool as every other individual with no consideration being given to your relationship. The US does not have "relationship" visas. The quickest and easiest route to a work visa is to marry an American citizen. You can enter on a fiance/fiancee visa, then get married and then get your permanent residency. Then you can find work. Good luck.

    With reference to your CA teaching credential.

    Yes, you can apply for that at anytime, whether you are in the UK or US before you have a sponsor. You will need to submit all the relevant educational credentials that you currently have, as well as your foreign transcript evaluation. Once you've done all this, they'll assess your documents and providing all is well, they'll issue you a preliminary teaching credential.
