Are you interested in developing both the professional and personal sides of your life? Are you looking for diverse environments, new experiences and a different culture? If you answered yes to either, or both, of these questions, then teaching in the USA is right for you.
Teaching overseas is an excellent opportunity which can help you gain professional experience while developing yourself personally through new experiences, as well as providing you with the opportunity to see the world. Even if you don’t think teaching is exactly what you want to do as a career choice, teaching overseas on a short-term basis will open new horizons for you, and give you practical experience on which to make future career decisions.
So, what are the reasons to teach in the USA?
1. Career opportunities
Teaching in the USA will provide you with a chance to develop professionally, learning and honing a range of transferable skills that will be looked for and appreciated by future employees. You will also work with a host of skilled professionals, who will act as mentors so that you can gain knowledge from their expertise.
2. Excellent environment
Teaching in the USA will allow you to explore and experience new situations without the difficulties of a language barrier. When presented with small class sizes and highly motivated students, you are guaranteed to learn just as much from them as they are from you.
3. Financial incentives
Many international schools offer excellent salaries, some of which are tax-free, meaning teaching will be financially rewarding as well as developmentally rewarding. In addition, you are likely to get housing, annual leave, and insurance, meaning that there are a whole host of benefits and incentives.
4. Planning for your future
Equally, teaching in the USA will make you stand out above your peers, providing you with a wealth of experience that employees will love, making it far easier to start on a new career path in the future.
