Can foreign trained and qualified elementary & high school teachers work in the US and Canada?

Just wondering whether a teaching qualification from Ireland would be recognised in the US and Canada? Is there a shortage of elementary and high school teachers in the US and Canada or is there an oversupply? What is pay like for a "new recruit"? How stable are contracts? I'm not a teacher but it may in the medium term be the career path I'll choose, maybe. But then again maybe I'll see sense and become a ballet dancer. Thanks.

Canada will be easier than the US with an Irish degree. There are very few jobs in the US right now... More
