Update: International School Teachers Roundup!

In January, I shared a list of international school teachers (those teaching outside of their home country in a school catering to expatriate families) on Twitter (or blogging). In the last few months, even more teachers have added themselves to the Google Form, so I thought I would do a recap with all of the names currently on the spreadsheet, organized by country.

If you’re not on the list yet and you’re teaching outside of your home country in a school for expatriate children, please feel free to add yourself! I’ll do another recap soon!

Note: I linked the names of teachers to their blogs (if listed) and their Twitter @username to their profiles (if listed):

Asia

China

Korea

  • Greg Israel, @israelgreg, Korea International School
  • Jason Crewe, @jcrewe, Busan Foreign School

Vietnam

Japan

Thailand

Singapore

Malaysia

India

Indonesia

Taiwan

  • Leanne Rainbow, @rainbowl, Taipei American School

The Philippines

Middle East/Central Asia

Qatar

Oman

Khazakhstan

Morocco

Latin America

Mexico

Brazil

Argentina

Peru

Europe

Spain

Switzerland

Austria

  • Chris Rolfe, @cmrolfe, American International School Vienna

Serbia

  • Jennie Scott-McKenzie, @jennieteacher, International School of Belgrade

Looking at this list, it’s interesting to see where most of the teachers are working. Can we make the assumption that those schools are the ones that are really moving forward with technology? Or is this list more representative of schools in Asia because that’s where I’m currently working?

Either way, if you’re considering going overseas, or just moving on to a new school, these are the people that can give you the greatest insight into life in a new country and working at a new school. There’s nothing better than actually knowing people at the schools you’re interested in to make an informed decision about where to go.

Please spread the word! I know there are many more international school teachers on Twitter and blogging!

    Thanks so much for adding this post as a resource to Shambles! I know how many people rely on your services, and I appreciate the mention 🙂

    @Liz,

    So glad it’s helpful! I love finding new international school colleagues online!

    @friedafoxworth,

    You’re right – this list is definitely for more than just international school teachers – it’s great to get to know people all over the world, no matter what kind of school they work in!
