I little bit of my profile

I'm a brazilian and I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and I'm finishing a master degree in pure mathematics (algebraic geometry). I can speak English, German, French (I've already lived there), Spanish and Portuguese (Of course). I'm a math professor (non-permanent) at a high education institute in Brasil. My prospectives in my country are great, there are a lot of jobs here for teachers and college professors, because Brasil is a developing country which lacks high professionals.

My question

Before getting a well-paying permanent job in my country as a professor (and get married, be fat and die) I would like to have some work experiences in another countries. I love to travel and know new cultures. So, are there ways for me to teach in school in Portugal? I think Portugal would be easier for me because of the language.

  • I am not sure I can make heads or tails of what you're asking. The only question you have posed has an answer of yes. Otherwise it is unclear what it is that you're asking. – Karlson Jun 4 '15 at 14:52

    If you choose to do a PhD you could aim for a research/academic career. That's not easy but you get to travel (for conferences of course but also chasing 1-2 years post-doc appointments). People who are trying to start a family actually complain about that aspect of academic careers but it could be a plus for you. – Gala Jun 4 '15 at 15:11
  • @Karlson so if the answer is yes, how can I do that? do you know any program to teach abroad to a non English native speaker? this is what my question about. – user26832 Jun 4 '15 at 22:29
  • @Gala yes, I've already thought about this. The problem is I don't know if I will be a researcher in my area. On the other hand, someone with a master or a PHD degree in pure mathematics is overqualified to be a teacher in schools, even if you consider countries with a high level of basic education. – user26832 Jun 4 '15 at 22:39
  • @user26832 Then you should focus the question on this rather then on the side stories. In addition focus on a particular country or a region and a level for which you want to teach mathematics. School level is one thing, university orca colledge is quit another. As it stands the question is too broad and unclear. – Karlson Jun 4 '15 at 23:24
