But I feel still a more viable way/option of coming over than a lot of people have.
My sister's neighbour did an exchange at the beginning of this academic year, she's an art teacher. She exchanged from a school in Wiltshire to one in the Philly burbs I think.

Its very possible, the only concern now is the lack of H1B's, my wife was visiting me on vacation, applied for some teaching jobs, got offered almost every one she went for, then we applied for a H1-B and she got one and started work
Now though you got like 50% chance of getting a H1-B as they are over subscribed. Don't let the doom mongers stop you from trying!

haha.. you should look at this year's numbers. As of Friday, I think the cap had not yet been filled. (the past several years it's been a lottery from the first day's worth of applicants on April 1)

Thanks for all the replies, even the negative ones. A special thanks to the newcomer who told me about the British schools. I have had a look at them and they have plenty of jobs on offer and they only recruit Brits, so I'll be applying to them; failing that I'll wait a few more years until the majority of the American population is obese, as there will be a shortage of workers as they will all be laid on extra strong beds eating McDonalds.

It's natural grease though, not chemically-synthesized muck. And it usually supports a family, not a bloody corporate CEO's freakin bonus.

It'll be back with the people when we finally line them all up against the wall along with that bloody St John-Stevas.. Nice find, though!

heh.. made me google! Did you write this wiki entry?

Lord St John is noted for his large number of personal affectations, including proffering his hand in papal fashion, lapsing into Latin while speaking, and deliberately mispronouncing modern words.[1] A loyal monarchist, Lord St John enjoys a close relationship with the British royal family[4] that has been described as sycophantic.[5] Soon after elevation to the Lords, photographs of him in purple bedroom slipper appeared in Hello! magazine lounging in the bedroom of his Northampton rectory a signed photograph of the late Princess Margaret prominently displayed. All personal notes were written in purple ink and after his elevation to the Lords, he used only official House of Lords headed stationery.

Actually, I'd probably be quite happy if it were just him against the wall -- he was one of Thatcher's henchmen. The rest of the motley crew can be given a council house in Basildon, and the dole to live on.
