    With a few years experience you can teach English in Hong Kong. You don't need an English degree but you do need to be willing to work in a foreign culture and have some type of certificate. Starting pay is around 80,000 US dollars. I am not making anything for promoting this site but go to teachaway.com and see for your self. It's a chance of a lifetime. I have been in HK over 6 years.

    Every morning I hear the union rep for the Denver Teachers on the local radio station say the same thing, “we want a competitive and predictable pay scale”. When pressed for evidence, he always hides behind the phrase, “well it’s complicated...the debil is in the details”. Basically, he wants zero accountability, e.g., guaranteed compensation without measurable performance results. In my line of work, as in most private sector orgs, you’re only paid for results. My employer could care less how many advanced degrees I’ve accumulated. If my degree directly contributes to my decision making in winning the game, the money will come as a direct correlation with measurable performance. Too many government employees get rewarded simply for accumulating degree papers. The times of an open-ended check book without budgetary constraints are over. In CO, the capitol, as in CA, has become a one party system, so we need a tax revolt.

    Teachers tend to be really lovely, truly caring people. But they are trapped in a really unfortunate political climate. My parents taught public school for a combined 40+ years. They were making six figures each with tenure. It's hard for me to understand the lack of pay argument, but I absolutely believe they are overwhelmed with responsibilities; we personally homeschool our kids for reasons like this.
