    Interesting the requirement is a B.S. I don't know a lot of teachers who have B.S. in education.. most i know - including myself - have B.A.s

    i think its just one way to just weed people out. When i considered becoming an esl teacher in taiwan, they also required a B.S. degree of any field.

    Only BS? I have a BA. My degree's not in education, but the university I went to had an education program but those graduates got a BA in Education, not a BS.

    I'm looking to have that as backup down the road when I move to thailand. there are people that use VIDKID as their source of income while living abroad. Jason fonger on youtube is a good example of this. But I'm currently working on other projects so that I can live abroad.
