International teacher consultant Jacqueline Mallais joined us from Guadalajara, Mexico for this episode.
Jacqueline Mallais, M.Ed., M.A., is a former international teacher and school leader with over 20 years of experience in six countries on four continents. Since heading overseas in 1996, she has helped a number of teachers secure amazing opportunities abroad over the years. Originally from Ottawa, Canada, now living in beautiful Guadalajara, Mexico, she offers her consulting services to teachers looking for personal help and guidance on their job search journey.
Our guiding question was “You signed the contract for your new school. What happens next?”
Jacqueline has such a depth of knowledge about the international teacher job transition process. As with our other encounters with her, we learned a lot today! In this episode we covered the topic of what happens after you sign the contract with your new school. Jacqueline shares insights on who you will be hearing from, what type of information will be shared, what early orientation can look like, and lots more. These tips will help you prepare to take the leap of faith into teaching overseas while also helping veteran international educators transition from one post to another!
The show was recorded on October 18, 2022.
