I currently live/work in NW Florida as a 6th grade science/math teacher. I am planning on taking my Praxis tests this summer so I can submit my resume/application around the January time frame, which I believe I read somewhere is the time to submit. By that time I will have completed 2 years in my field. I am a military retiree looking to get back overseas. Specifically I am hoping to settle in England permanently. I was reading on another post that these sites are typically short staff. Is this true, and are there any sites I should avoid? I am willing to go down to Elementary school as I have a K-6 degree, and of course up in science for middle school as I have a current cert in 6-9 Science as well.

On a side note has anyone pursued a dual citizenship at a DoDEA location?

haha The option to live on base varies by location, year, family situation etc. It's available some years in some places, for some people, etc.

Yes, LQA generally covers all of the costs for rent and utilities for a very nice place off base. Post allowance went way up in Japan a while back (like tripled). It has dropped back down some, but with...See More
