Help a UK teacher get to San Francisco

ForeignTeacherFilter: I'm a secondary (11-19yrs) science teacher in the UK and want to teach in the San Francisco area from 2010 for a few years at least. Will probably have to go private at first due to accreditation process - any recommendations for schools to contact?

I've been teaching in the UK for 3 years, I'm a good teacher - been getting great results, students are confident and happy in their work. I'm a physics specialist, but teach all science up to age 16 (GCSE-level in the UK), and just physics beyond that. I also run the e-learning side of things at my school - purchasing hardware and software, running our Moodle VLE. I think I'm pretty employable! Seems like transferring qualifications, even for shortage subjects, is a royal PITA.
Would like to hear experiences of similar, if anyone can put me in contact with someone who has lived the dream, or if anyone knows a school that's looking for a teacher!
