hellohitty, you seem to think that to Taiwanese a highly qualified teacher in Taiwan means someone with a degree in the field of Education, relevant experience in the education field and a genuine ability to teach kids and give them an outstanding education.
I was under the impression that Taiwanese consider a highly qualified teacher to be someone with a North American accent, white with stereotypical caucasian features, a BA from a North American school and being a passport holder of North America and some select other english speaking countries, who can entertain kids, get new business and not try to succeed in actually teaching kids or trying to have any methodology or ideology about education that does not flow with the parents or hiring school’s. A teacher who is a white monkey who jumps around the classroom, gets paid in bananas and does not get renumeration for outside classroom work (hallway, playground monitoring, test marking, class preparation) and belches North American ideal and culture on cue would be the most ideal Taiwanese English teacher for the Buxiban.
Please correct me if I am mistaken.
If your sole desire is to make money, you may have better luck in Philadelphia, or Chicago. As well as southern Florida, as for qualified teachers with your history, their pay would be double what you would get in Taiwan due to a teacher shortage and recruitment drive going on in those areas.
