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!

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 for doing this … it could be a very valuable resource for teachers applying for jobs in International Schools.
To help spread the word I’ve add details to one of my Shambles Recruitment areas http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/r_osadvice
I’ll also mention it in the next Shambles Newsletter that will go out in November.
p.s. … just don’t know where you get your energy from ;-)
Thanks for organizing this Kim. What a great way to expand our PLNs as international school teachers.
Even though I’m not an international school teacher, I appreciated your list. I’m very interested in expanding my PLN globally. I love having the opportunity to learn from other teachers around the world! Thanks for sharing.
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 :)
So glad it’s helpful! I love finding new international school colleagues online!
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!
Forgot to add Asb-India in the list.
Can you add yourself to the spreadsheet, please?

We need to beef up that European representation! :)
Thanks Nancy! I’ll add them to the spreadsheet.
