Shhhhh! (stuckonyou78) wrote in teaching_uk,


Hi there. I'm currently in my student teaching practicum in an inner-city school in New York City. I'm going to (hopefully) be finishing up my Masters in Teaching Math by December. I have been giving a lot of thought to teaching in the UK, and I was wondering if I could get any feedback or advice for people who have moved from NYC or the US to teach in the UK.

I have heard that it is an extremely different experience in the UK than it is in the US, and that it is not advisable to begin my first year of teaching there...Has anyone heard similar things?  Also, does anyone know if Belfast has as many openings as say, London does? I am fairly open to teaching any grade from 7 to 12 as long as I feel like the school is somewhat supportive of its staff.
