Teach in Japan - Teaching Abroad while having a family?
My main question deals with bringing my wife and children to live overseas. Are there schools or employers in Japan (or any other Asian country) that would have housing to accomodate a large family?
I came across your website and decided to ask some questions. My name is Nick and I have a BS in Occupational Safety and Health from Columbia Southern University. I am married and my wife and I have 5 daughters (ages 14, 12, 9, 7 and 5). I have been interested in learning more about teaching English overseas (Preferable in an Asian Country and more specifically Japan, Taiwan). I do not have a TESOL certificate, although I would not have a problem in completing this). The brunt of my questions and concerns would be in regards to my family. My wife homeschools our children, so the cost of schooling overseas would not be an issue. I have many years of corportate training experience, so while I dont have experience in teaching children, I feel that this is
something that I would love to do (afterall, having a large family does prepare one for the challenges of teaching children).
I look forward to getting everyone's thoughts...Nick
