I am a teacher from the U.S.  I have a master's degree specifically in Teaching, and I've been a full-time teacher in the U.S. for the last three years.  I am searching for job specifically in Seoul so as to be with my significant other. I need to start in August, or no later than September 1. I am looking for a school that is willing to provide a fair (and legal!) contract and has a good reputation for how it treats its employees.
