Sarah P’s comments:  Fall is the beginning of the recruiting season for international schools.  Schools can be a way to break into the international market as they offer the most positions.  If you do not have certification it is fairly easy to earn by studying online.   Please read Chapter 3 of my book for an in-depth explanation of this market if you are interested (and see the Book Resources section of the blog as well).  Also, I highly recommend joining both The International Educator (TIE) as well as International School Reviews (ISR) as they will help you to know what positions are available and, more importantly, which ones are the most reputable.
