Hi,

My fiancée is a government employee, a teacher, she is wondering does she have to bring anything with her to the interview or when departing the country so that there will be no issues.

As time for her interview draws near we are trying to make sure we have covered everything.


Thanks,

Lyn and Art

Ummm, what do you mean, bring anything to the interview? She would have to bring all the same things that every one else has to bring, right? Not sure I understand what you mean...

She is asking specifically about documentation relevant to her status as a government employee and does that have any bearing on her ability to leave the country. She is an English teacher.


Thanks,

In Philippines the people especially the woman have been conditioned to fear and obey authority figures

Like if someone quits a job they are scared the will be sued...................

Nope, but if she'd like to teach in the US, start looking up licensing rules in your state! She can maybe already get a sealed transcript from her school, or have her transcript validated by WES so that it can be converted to US standards.. :) It's always good to be prepared!


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

World Education Services.Oftentimes, to get a US license for a profession, they require that foreign transcripts be validated. This is because we don't follow the same grading system as here in the US. Once you do this, it will become like a US transcript (it will indicate if your degree is equal to a US degree, what your GPA is, number of units you've taken and your grades in ABC format. :)

Check your state rules, they might ask for this plus a sealed original transcript from your school, and you might be required to take some kind of test, like Praxis, which you can take here in the US.. The whole process might take some time, but I don't foresee why a Fil teacher with a degree can't teach here, or at least be a teaching assistant.. :) You just have to complete the licensing requirements.. Worst that can happen is you'll be required to take some additional credits, but you can do that at any community college for a low cost

I am retired, but I also maintain my teaching certificate in the event that I might want to teach again. I was advised by a state government representative that I should not allow my certificate to laps, because if I did I would come under a whole new set of rules. I would have to go back to school take child abuse classes or whatever else they would require, so I keep mine current for that reason. I is easier to maintain the certificate than to try to get it back. You do need to check with the Office of Public Education for whatever state you will want to teach in. Then there maybe some special requirements that will necessitate your taking a few more college classes to qualify you. I have a Continuing Teaching Certificate with K-8 Elementary Education, and K-12 Special Education. The only thing I have to do to keep it valid is that I am required to take 15 credit hours of college classes level 100 or above every five years, then when I complete that I sent in my teaching certificate with an application having my classes that I have taken listed. I think this may be specific to Washington State. They audit a percentage of the applications, and if you are selected then you have to send your college transcipts to them. I made a mistake when I sent in my application a couple of months ago, and I put the wrong year on a couple of my classes making it look like I hadn't taken them yet, but it was an easy fix, and I sent my transcripts in to them to help clarify the truth about the error that I made. Just check with the Office of the Superintendant of Public Education for your state, and they will advise you what you need to do, and that should clarify it for you. I hope that helps you.

I was under the impression that once you come to the states you are ineligible for a government job until after a certain period of time (several years.) I guess you could teach in a private school, but not public...if what I have heard is true.

Can anyone enlighten me on this? My fiancee is also a teacher and will be looking into getting a teaching position in a private school once here.

Thanks!
