Remember that while many of these programs meet the requirements for an Ohio teaching license, that does not guarantee that you can work in the United States. In order to work in the United States you need an employer to sponsor you for a work permit. Most schools do not sponsor work permits unless the employee has special skills (e.g., Spanish / English bilingual) that are needed by the school.
