I worked last fall at a bilingual school in Honduras. I
came home early due to unethical practices of the
administration. Wherever you go, find good referrals from
people that live in the surrounding area who can give you
objective opinions. Although, sometimes this isn't even enough
(speaking from experience). Just know that if you fall into
any litigation issues or issues that are generally resolved
with teacher's unions, you will be on your own there. And, you
will have to fight for yourself.
There are other teachers who have had wonderful
experiences. So, don't let this deter you from a life changing
experience that you would regret later on in life. Go for it!
