In Response To: TEFL (Jacqueline)

I have my BSW and also a career development facilitator certification; I currently work as a Career Coach/HS Recruiter for a technical college. In the past I worked in the ELL classroom here at the college...I guess my concern is that I am not a teacher (by degree) which makes me think that I will not obtain an English teaching position.

I would like to hear responses from others who did not have an education background who have taught abroad.

There are plenty of non-education degree holders teaching EFL worldwide---just look at qualifications indicated on many TEFL job ads. Besides, a solid, reputable TEFL certificate course like the CELTA will give you the basic training you need for an entry-level teaching position abroad.

I suggest you head over to the Cafe's job discussions where there's a forum specifically for newbie teachers (forums.eslcafe.com/job/).
