i got this email from woman at georgetown u who ran across my blog. wanted to share the info. link and more info here:

I'd like to spread the word about this great opportunity for ESL teachers, especially those of color.  I work in recruitment and selection for this U.S. Department of State-sponsored program in the EL Fellow Program.

Eligibility requirements include:
  • U.S. citizenship
  • Master’s degree with focus in TESL/TEFL (TESOL Certificate with a related Master's degree)
  • Fellows must have minimum two years professional TESL/TEFL experience; teacher training and curriculum/material development are helpful.
  • Senior Fellows must have minimum four years teacher training/teacher development experience; overseas TEFL experience is helpful.
  • Stipend: Fellows - $25,000; Senior Fellows - $35,000
  • Living allowance covering the cost of reasonable, safe and comfortable housing (comparable to the standard of living in the country of assignment), food, utilities, and local transportation.
  • International round trip transportation from the Fellow’s U.S. residence to the host country.
  • Supplemental health benefit plan while abroad (not to replace any health insurance held by the Fellow).
  • Miscellaneous allowances (shipping, educational materials, in-country program activities, and pre-departure expenses).

We are currently accepting applications for placements beginning fall 2011 and early 2012.

Great blog! I arrived in South Korea as an ESL teacher three weeks ago. I'm loving the country and the people. I look forward to following your site. I like the photos, as well as the updated info for those of us who teach English as a Second Language.
