I'm starting out my teaching career in just over a week's time, teaching secondary mathematics in Australia (ranging from pre-algebra to calculus). I'm Australian, and I'd love to teach at some point in the near future the US though. Now before anyone tries to scare me off (though I always welcome doses of reality grounded in wisdom) with tales of the school system in the US, or wonders why I might want to leave a place that is generally considered desirable - I really value intercultural experiences and having spent about a year of my life in the US in the past six years, it's a personal and professional goal of mine to teach and learn in the US. I've seen a fair amount of negative media out there regarding mismanagement of teachers on work visas/corruption in the administration, and it'd be great to hear the perspectives of those on the ground - local teachers themselves. What are the attitudes in your school/district towards teachers from abroad?
