I'm in process of getting a teaching degree here in the United States
Yea, you're young and have got family here.
Why not, you've got nothing to lose and loads to gain.
Re: teaching, contact a few schools or research your qualification to see if it's appropriate to get a gig here.
Otherwise do a CELTA before you move.
& remember too, that there are less native speakers in the smaller cities, so you can earn more dosh living in them.
