My wife (also a teacher) and I decided (as I was finishing my teaching credential) to apply to international schools.
We ended up both getting jobs in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for this current school year. We have airfare paid, housing paid, tax-free salary (dependent on # of days spent in the US every year), and make about the same as we would in the states... Cost of living here is a fraction of what it would be in the states. We've been able to fly all over on our breaks (Prague for spring break last week!), and plan to do the same next year.
We won't do this for the long-haul, but it's an amazing opportunity to see the world, live in a different culture, get some great experience, and save a bunch of money.
Granted, the cost of living in Europe and many other places would make the "Saving a bunch of money" part hard, but at least expenses would be covered.
Depending on what field your daughter is pursuing, international work could be a great option in a few years.
Then again, you're only young once!
I think she should look into making her interest in international setting an integral part of her career.
