Ostrava? Zlin? Brno? Olomouc? I'm determined not to live in Prague, although I will obviously visit occasionally. I'm an English Lit./Creative Writing high school teacher (certified, but not TEFL, from the State of Missouri) as well as a licensed History teacher. I have two Master's degrees and will have 5 years' experience, so I was thinking about working in a university again, which I really enjoyed doing in Colombia, South America last year (I also taught at a private school, which was the majority of my salary). I've also coached volleyball, soccer and basketball, so open to that as well. Ostrava seems a bit industrialized. But I just came from a city of around 300,000 and it seemed small at times, so I don't want to live in the middle of nowhere either. What areas are most in need of English teachers, either Lit classes or ESL? I'm not looking to save money necessarily and will probably have a cushion of $5-10,000 to get started (if I do private lessons in the summer), but I would prefer to work in a public/private school or university. I like Brno because it's closer to Slovakia and Bratislava if I work there as well, just not sure about getting a car, public transportation, trains, trolleys. How long does it take to get the permits or licenses one needs to teach? Would you do that through a Czech Embassy in the US (like Chicago) or wait until you get there? I'm assuming there's some kind of temporary or semi-permanent tourist visa for 90-180 days. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
