I am aiming to go to South Korea to teach English for a year sometime in late 2014. I have my B.A. in History and a Masters of Arts in Teaching and I hold two Certificates of Eligibility with Advanced Standing to teach Elementary (K-5) and Secondary Social Studies (K-12) in New Jersey. I am currently working as a long-term substitute and expect to gain a year's experience doing so. I also taught English in China for seven weeks this past summer (through the CSETC program). With that said, I am unsure if this is adequate in terms of being eligible for a public school (I hear they are better than private) position in Korea. I have been looking at listings on a number of websites and they list TEFL or CELTA certification as a pre-requisite and some state "or a degree in Education". Would I be at more of a disadvantage if I do not get one of the aforementioned certifications in a job search in South Korea, or are my degrees and experience sufficient?
