RETIRED AND READY TO TEACH
Q.
I am a vigorous and healthy and energetic female, 65 years of age. I am just retiring from the nursing field, where I have done much work with adolescents and children with psychiatric disorders. My degree is an Associate Degree in Nursing. I have excellent communication and teaching skills as patient care calls for this, especially with children and adolescents. 1. Is age a barrier to traveling and teaching English? 2. Are my former professional qualifications as a Registered Nurse who has taken State Boards and is Licensed in the USA, sufficient to permit a TEFL certification course.

A.
Some employers prefer the younger teacher, for a variety of reasons. However, the benefits that the mature teacher can bring to the learning situation are being appreciated increasingly. Your previous qualifications and experience very much lend themselves to the teaching of young learners.
