    I am TEFL certified and am currently working as the TOEFL Program Director & Lead Teacher at the Boston Academy of English, Boston, Massachusetts, where I have been employed for three years.
    Now that I have experience, and the admiration of my students and colleagues alike, I would very much like to teach abroad – preferably in Western Europe. However, it seems quite challenging to work there unless one is an EU citizen.
    I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. Ideally, I would like to teach TOEFL Preparation one or two months at a time, then break for a month or so and then teach again. But I am open to any and all suggestions. With my sincere thanks,
    Lin Gallagher, TEFL Certified
