My husband was licensed for middle and high school social studies in the states. We just moved here a little over a month ago and he's hoping to possibly teach. His license is expired and he is willing to renew it, but is it worth it here? We have had nothing but dead end leads so far. Any information in regards to leads, pay, etc. would be much appreciated. Thank you!
WHICH ISLAND are you on?
St. Croix, sorry. I guess that would help!
Have you tried HR at the public schools?
I will send him in person. All we seem to do is run around and not much is being accomplished. Thank you!

They pay is so low that even the Phillipino teachers they hire from off shore leave for the states after the first year.
sorry about the caps, i often forget they are on. put out a plea to other teachers here and also do a search on this forum and put teachers in the search, also dont limit the search to a few months .
The pay is lower than the States but there are a dozen Philipino teachers that I work with that are on their second year and plan to do more. This is my first year here and the students are way better behaved then the ones I left and the incoming 9th graders know more than the 9th graders I'm use to. So a very pleasant year so far.
Just my introduction so far, but to each their own though. The other three first year stateside teachers that I hangout with also have the same view point that I have on the students.
My husband and I are both teachers on St Croix (teaching in the public school system, not private) - we are in our 9th year of teaching here. Feel free to PM with any questions you might have.
Thank you all so much. We need to find employment soon and appreciate the information you have provided.
I dont live on USVI but have you looked at tutoring?
