Can a Good Trained Teacher with Indian Accent Get a Job to Teach English to American Children in US?
If you want to teach in American schools you might consider subjects other than English. I don't mean to be critical, but there is a small syntax error in your question and similar errors in your profile. Americans who have spoken English all their lives make grammar and syntax errors in casual conversation all the time, but when an English teacher writes you don't expect to see these types of errors.
Children have more trouble understanding accented English than adults, so a lot depends on the degree of your accent. Do Americans have to ask you to repeat yourself in conversation? Is there a perceptible pause before someone responds to you, indicating that it is taking a minute to assimilate what you said?
Then there is the issue of competing for the job. You will be competing with native English speakers educated in American universities.
These are just a few things that come to mind. It will be interesting to see what other responses you get.
I certainly dont see why not. I know that Montessori schools are very interested in doing so. Hope this helps. :-)
While I agree with the point made by Kgnature concerning the written errors, I do think that can be overcome. In some parts of the states ESL services are offered through many districts and that is the educational niche I think you might fit into very well teaching English. Having said that, you would have to fix those slight errors but the fact that you yourself are not a native English speaker would actually be helpful in that educational setting. ESL is English as a Second Language. All the students in said programs are learning it and would really, truly relate to you as a teacher because you have done what you would be teaching them. High schools all over Texas and many other states have such programs.
I wish you all the success in the world and think we need teachers like you. Our student populations are becoming increasingly culturally diverse. In my opinion, our teaching staffs must reflect the same diversity.
I've taught in international schools all over the world, and the ones in India, particularly the American consulate school in New Delhi, is far beyond anything you'd find here in the U.S.
Have you considered international teaching? It was a wonderful life for me and my family for nearly 18 years, and I worked with several Indian nationals outside of India, too.
Good luck! Think globally!

I would like to work abroad teaching English. But the number of options of courses to take to get a TEFL qualification seems a bit confusing. Is it better applying for the most expensive or is that not necessary?
