I am an Australian thinking about moving to the big apple for a year. I am a special education teacher and I was wondering if anybody can recommend some good special schools private or public (close to downtown) to look at for future employment. I was also curious about the salary level of a teacher with a masterís degree and 6 years experience would be paid.

I'm from Sydney, living in Colorado, but I used to live outside of NYC in Connecticut.

I'll start out by saying that the NYC CBD is, by Australian standards, most of the city, including all of Manhattan island. I donno if you've been there or not... but if you moved anywhere in the 5 Burroughs, you're almost guaranteed to find great opportunities in education.

I know there are tons of schools around NYC, and if you're willing to venture outside of the city a little, then new england is just littered with small private schools that cater to individual needs who would probably bend over backwards to have an MA with 6 years teaching experience.

Keep in mind that in american public schools, you need state certification to be considered, irrespective of qualifications. Private school teachers in the states generally only require a bachelors degree.

Yeah he could definitely find work in NYC, that's not a problem. The real question is, can he afford to live here on a teacher's salary, even with the higher pay that comes with having a MA.
