Returning to the US & Job Hunting
Barbra asked about returning to the US after several years of teaching in Taiwan. Jack Kronser (HR director in Colorado) writes: "Your question is pretty all-encompassing, but I understand your concerns. Yes, being out of the country that long would make you a little out of touch, however, a good teacher is always a good teacher. I would suggest that you start with reading AAEE's Job Search Handbook (www.aaee.org). There are some great tips on what is happening in education relative to job searchers.
Subject content-wise, I would suggest that you look at websites, such as the National Staff Development Council, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, or the Education Departments of well-known colleges and universities.
