Currently a Math. Teacher in Egypt for Middle/Upper Grades

Hey,

I'm a Math. teacher from Egypt teaching IGCSE/IB Math. programs for the middle/higher grades (I have a B.Sc in Math. from the "Faculty of Science"). I've worked for about 5+ years in different schools in Egypt teaching Math. mostly for international students in the medium of English. My English language abilities are pretty good (I'm Academic IELTS certified with an overall band score of 7 and a sub-score of 8 in the "Speaking" section).

I'm NOT interested to continue living in Egypt for ever but rather I prefer USA (OR Australia) as a legal migrant and for that specific reason, I'd like to take my current qualifications in teaching several steps higher for the sake of blending them within the US standards for being officially recognized as a Math. teacher.

I'm aspiring to take it even a step higher & teach in the first years of community/technical colleges since I'm always interested in teaching advanced pure math.

Knowing that there's a big shortage for Math. teachers in both USA/Australia, I'm ready to invest some time (hopefully it won't exceed a max. of 2 years), money and effort for the sake of transferring/adapting my current teaching abilities to the standards adopted in these countries for the sake of legally staying after study as a useful non-burden migrate.

Is there any program available like a masters of something that suits me & help achieve my goals? and what are my chances of legally staying after the fact?

(P.S. There's no point at all for me investing a tremendous amount of effort and money in a master degree if I'll finally have to return back to Egypt at the end as this masters won't make any difference for me over here!!)

~ Sorry for the long post but I'm trying to clarify everything clearly ~

Best Regards

Think about a MAT that includes state certification for working in the K-12 system. Post-secondary institutions require a Master's in Mathematics.

After that, it's a matter of finding a school that will sponsor a work visa - and don't rule that out because there is a shortage.

Hi,

First of all I'm really sorry for the late reply and very thanks for your kind reply but can you please tell me what do you mean by MAT? I tried goggling the expression myself but I wasn't able to find a useful meaning for this acronym. Thanks a lot once again.

Cheers

Masters of Arts in Teaching; it's a graduate degree.
