Re: interested in international teaching

    I worked for four years at a small locally-owned, foreign-
    managed school in China. I got the job by answering directly
    an internet ad at a teacher website. I have not dealt with
    ISS. A cheaper, still effective alternative is suscribing to
    TIE Online. My former school and many other large and small
    schools around the globe advertise in TIE. Recruiting season
    has already started, so hurry if you're looking for something
    in the fall.On 3/28/06, Joy S. wrote:
