I got my job in an American School in Tampico, Mexico through UNI. I highly recommend their fair. There is a similar fair IN San Francisco but I don't know who hosts it (and it's before UNI), and there is another one in Boston.
You can also just google American Schools, IB schools or British Schools in the country you are interested in. I also recommend the Peace Corps. I served as a teacher and teacher trainer in Moldova. They snap up people with teaching credentials.
Message me for more details.
P.S. Be veryyyyyyyyy careful with "Language Institutes" since they vary so much in quality.

I'm currently teaching for a year in Quito, Ecuador. Love it. Challenged though to eat right - on top of the normal tired-at-the-end-of-the-day-blues, lower fat options are hard to find here. Any ideas?

I have taught English in China, and go back to do summer school quite often. The Chinese Government is always looking for Native Speakers to help the students. It is very different from teaching here in the US. Class sizes are approx 60+ students...however they are completely respectful...there is not a sound unless they are asked to speak...and they work really hard.
Hard to imagine that there are more students learning English there than there are English speakers.

I haven't taught overseas YET but I did live in Germany for 5 years and have been planning on going back to Europe, or anywhere for that matter, and I am planning on teaching while I'm there. I was just doing some research, and the US State Department has some good info...check here for starters and see if anyone else replies. Good luck! http://www.state.gov/www/about_state/sch ools/index.html
I just finished my multiple subject credential program at San Francisco State University. The job market isn't good, not even for subbing so I was thinking about maybe teaching abroad for a couple of years. There are so many different websites out there, I was wondering if anybody has had a good experience with an organization or knows a good place to start? Have you enjoyed teaching abroad? Thanks for any help.
