I would like to know your school's policy on hiring teachers without Western passports. If, for example, a teacher with a Pakistani passport studied in the US, had native English ability and 16 yrs. of experience with teaching at American schools, would your director give that person the same consideration as a person with a US, Canadian or British passport? See More

With your interest in Education and Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.
