I have ten years of elementary teaching and 2 years of teaching graduate and doctoral students. My PhD is in theology and ethics. I will be taking the TEFL next month to also provide the option of teaching English as I am a native English speaker. I am willing to teach in a language school, university, business school, etc.
I have made initial inquiries to schools in France and have not had much response. I would love to know what I can do to facilitate a contract or solid job offers prior to arriving in Lyon. This would enable me to secure housing and begin life there.
Even though I am willing to teach English, I am also interested in working with NGOs and even the local churches on specific social justice issues I feel important to explore in France.
Any thoughts on how to get started are appreciated!
