Teaching Jobs in Singapore

Postby texlax30 » Thu, 05 Jan 2012 12:10 am

I've been lurking around this site for a while now and must say I've gotten some great info. I am an American from Texas and will be relocating to Singapore through my company sometime in the late Spring/early Summer 2012. My partner is a teacher here in Texas and she will be joining me later in the Summer. She has 3-4 years teaching experience, the majority of which has been focused on special needs children between the ages of 2-5. She is open to teaching non special needs infants as well.

I guess my first question is when should she start applying - is mid January too early/late for job postings for the 12-13 school year? We've done some basic research on the bigger International Schools such as SAS, Tanglin, Stamford - any advice on where to look further would be greatly appreciated.

We wouldn't be married when she comes over (well, i don't think..!) and no children, so I'd imagine the main concern on top of salary would be return flights home and possible housing allowance to supplement mine.

Thanks in advance and look forward to hearing from the board.

Hello texlax30,

I think you can refer to this website for more information:
http://moe.edu.sg/education/special-education/teaching/

Since your partner is from the US, you may want to check with MOE if she fits the requirement and if any further action is required :)

Hope your relocation and settling down will be successful and smooth!

and its great to see how your partner is helping to make lives of special needs children better :)
