Hello all,
I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Tatyana, 
I'm blind, I live in Maryland near Washington DC.  

I recently got   my Russian diploma transferred into US equivalent. I have a  master degree in education and I'd like to find a job.   I don't have any  working experience in the states, and have no knowledge about studying or  working in the US public schools as well.

  After  graduation, in Russia, I  didn't work as a teacher in a school. The only experience I had with teaching is practicing  in a children school while studying in a college in Russia. It was 15 years ago. 

   My vocational counselor  from blind services suggests to use my degree in education and conceder   a job in a public children school.  

I          have  great doubts  as  a blind plus not native English speaker,   and  one who  neither studied in US schools, nor had  general knowledge about them, should I work toward getting teacher's job or something else.

I have tons  of questions and uncertainties. Please help me decide on that.  What the pros and cons are in my situation. I think I'd prefer part time job in general since I'd like to have more time dedicated to my family.  

Please write to me

Thank you very much to all.
