Finding work in Northern Marianas

by monkeylady Online Now Oct 23, 2004 at 11:22 PM

Hi! I am originally from the UK, now teaching in Japan, and when I leave I would like to work in the northern Marianas or in Micronesia teaching Enlish as a foreign language. I have degree, TEFL cert, 3 years experience etc. Does anyone know how easy it might be to find a teaching job in this region, or have any tips? Thanks for your help!

    Hi there Monkey,

    The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) with islands like Saipan, Tinian and Rota are Dependent Territory of the US. They have their own immigration rules but pretty much follow US rules. Also when it comes to working on Saipan, I guess u pretty much need to comply to US regulations (green card and things).

    Public schools are managed by the PSS (public school system) and there are some private schools. People in Saipan have the feeling things are going pretty badly there in an economic sense (basicly its the withdrawal of low wage garment industry which is unavoidable anyways with China that close) and a number of people leave the island, among which teachers. So they re pretty much in need of teachers I guess, but if u qualify i dont know.

    For more information try,, and

    Good luck

As all candidate teachers in southern CA know, teaching contracts are few and far between with each opening there must be a thousand applications.

    I am registered with I just recvd. an email from teachertoteacher with openings available in NMI Here is the contact information. For more information, please send an email to or This is a legitimate site, I checked it out before copying it to you.
