    Hello I am akanksha Bisht from India I am a certified teacher in India but I have only 1 year experience I want to apply for teaching in Colombia so please tell me how cm I apply for this


  2. Ms. Marshall,

    Attached is the reference for an article on professional travel programs for teachers that I think many of your readers might find worthwhile. I hope that you will consider sharing it in your newsletter.

    Safe travels,

    Jim Hauf


    1. Sorry, here’s the reference: Hauf, James E. 2013. See the World (and Bring it Back to Your Classroom): Professional Travel Programs for K–12 Geography Teachers. The Geography Teacher, Volume 10, Issue 2, 73-78.


  3. I am really thinking of teaching abroad for one school year 2014-2015. Would that decision affect my years of service with Boston Public schools? Also how can I go about finding a job? I would love to teach in Spain.


    1. Great questions! As you may know, I took a Leave of Absence from BPS from 2009-10. To be allowed to be paid during that year off, you will need a Career Transition Leave (though the name may now be different). Contact HR as soon as possible because the PS-03 form requesting a leave is due quite early in the year. Feel free to email me directly to discuss this further at TeachingTraveling at gmail. Taking the year off what the best thing I”ve done for my life and career!


  4. What online courses are recommended for someone who wants to teach abroad. I have a BA in Journalism and have been tutoring children in reading and writing for the last seven years.


    1. Great question! There are all sorts of ways to go about it. One is applying directly for jobs (check out this article here: ) or for grants (here is a list of teacher travel grants: ). Here is a discussion on whether it’s worth it to get TEFL certified:

      Good luck!

        @mikerheaume are making plans to go to Spain this coming January – We’ll also be at Meet Plan Go this Wed too to hopefully gain bits of wisdom and a better understanding from the more experienced folks out there. Mike can work remotely but I’ll be taking the teaching road, although I have no experience and just starting an online course now – Id love to chat and get some tips/ease my nerves – scary and exciting at the same time – definitely the biggest life adventure to date.
