Discuss professional development and the role of the chartered teacher in the TES Scotland Professional Development Group. Find out what forms of CPD other teachers recommend and discuss your career development options with your peers.
Which state are you planning on going to?
You go to the website for the education department of that state and it will tell you their requirements. I looked at DC and Massachussets and both of them just required me to pay a fee to get my qualifications verified through a recognised company. Then you would probably have to pay another fee to get your licence to teach.
Best of luck.
It's possible. Some States will not require you to retrain.
The tricky part is finding a good agency that will sponsor your visa (J1 visa or H1B). You'll need the assistance of an agency because it's almost impossible to do it without their expertise in getting you a visa. It's better to find an agency that will do it on a H1B visa - because you can stay for 3 years and get it renewed, and your more likely to get paid the same salary as an American teacher rather than peanuts.
GTRR, AUAP and VIF are examples of agencies I know.
You said you looked at DC and MA. Was this attached to a particular job offer?
