My wife and I are both experienced teachers (I have 15 years in elementary, she has 11). We both recently finished up our National Boards and each of us has multiple degrees and certifications. We both have our masters in elementary education and our Rank 1 certifications (30 hours +, mine is in educational technology, certifying me to teacher computer courses in all grade levels).
We have taught together for years, this being the third school we have been hired at together. We’re good at our job, and are usually requested to apply at at-risk schools to help support their program. (If anyone is interested, our web site is www.adventureeducational.com
We do not have children of our own and love to travel. After much consideration we have decided that we would like to become expat teachers, and move to another location permanently. We have researched, but have to admit, it’s a bit overwhelming. Many sites we have visited focuses on teaching overseas short term. We would be interested in finding a permanent home, buying a house, etc. But getting information on retirement, cost of living, etc. has been somewhat difficult.
If anyone could provide any suggestions on areas to focus our research it would be greatly appreciated.
